Welcome to the jungle!

Kevin and I headed out for a climb Saturday but we couldn't find the right start. We did a couple of off-route pitches above our skill level (I've fallen on rock pro now! The #2 camalot held nicely!). We did eventually find La Selva at about 2pm. We knew that it would be cutting it close for getting off the rock in daylight, but we carried on in good style nonetheless. I took pitches 1, 3, and 5, leaving the crux for Kevin. We were struggling with fatigue and probably didn't bring enough water. At one point Kevin was cramping in his quad and hands. But we did manage to finish the class 5 stuff right at sunset and summitted by headlamp!
