Ascent Trip Report

Got within 30ft of the top on the slabby gully in the crux and got wigged out with the exposure, felt like it was turning into a free climb. Looking back I should've just sucked it up and went for it but down climbing was already difficult enough from my point and I don't know if there were good anchors for a rappel line at the top.
