Route Climbed: the easy way! the stairs :) Date Climbed: September 19, 2004
Beautiful view from the top, enjoyed talking to the lookout and watching the high altitude hummingbirds at her feeder. It was a very cold day up there, though. The first storm of the season had just passed through...
Route Climbed: Mowing The Yawn (.10a) Date Climbed: 16 June 1997
At first, I was a bit intimidated to try MTY as a lead climb, especially with an overhanging base to anchors ratio of 40 feet! But once I scoped the route, psyched myself up and started up on the huge jugs, the fear had fizzled. 'Mowing The Yawn' is one of THE BEST Sierra sport climbs I have ever been on! Amazing vista, clean rock and no crowds!
