Pitch 1 Something Intresting 5.7+

Doug Ferguson on pitch 1 Something Interesting 5.7+

All I can say is wow, another day of classics in the Gunks.  I decided to hit up some variations today with my pal Chris. Oscar and Charlies is 5.7,and three routes rolled into one.  Each pitch is totally different from the other and should be added to any ones tick list.  The first corner pitch of Charlies to the wild roof pitch of Strickey from Nowhere and the last steep exposed pitch of Oscars.  Quite a nice variation from the norm.  Once we got back to our packs I decided to climb Something Interesting 5.7+.  Two thoughtful cruxes, good gear,Peregrines flying around under bluebird skies, con trails from airplanes floating above, the warmth of the sun, who could ask for more.  I surely couldn’t and pretty much decompressed after getting back to the ground.  One more pitch was in order to finish the day, Classy 5.8 is a variation of Classic 5.7.  Thin moves on the bottom and the crazy jug haul roof move at the finish really topped the day off for us. Bring the sun, bring the rock, spring climbing is here!!!
