Did Gunsight then scrambled to the top of MC on the class 3 slabs of the western face. From there to Upper Cathedral and down the Spires Gully.

T-stormed off of Paradise Lost...

Lines were too long on the other classics and the first few pitches of the Kor-Beck just weren't very attractive...

Cool route with a good friend Bryan. We were on our way to attempt N buttress of Mt. Goode but t-storms on the east side pushed us to climb in the valley instead. Was a great choice!

Central Pillar of Frenzy, also with Bryan. My favorite pure rock climb ever, by a mile!!! 9/25/2011

Regular route, with Carol. Lead all pitches.
We did the original variation on the second pitch and I found it quite challenging. Great route in a great setting, the approach kinda sucks :-)

NE buttress on Higher Cathedral Rock. 3.5 hours to the halfway point, thinking we were gonna cruise it, then the real climbing started. I was so trashed by the end that I had to prussik up the rope to get past the final 5.9 OW.

Climbed in 9 pitches in about 8.5 hours with Michal. 5.9+ roof on Supertopo finish was f* hard. I had other memorable moments (aka squeeze chimney and "burly 5.10) on the route... highly recommended.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

Ahhh, the good old days. Climbed the NB with a strong Central Valley farmboy who I met in Camp 4. Nice fellow. Slept in the Gunsight on the way down.

The day before that, I climbed The Braille Book with a very pleasant teen-aged girl named Claudia. I wonder where she is now...(a really great route, btw)

A few months later--in Sept 79--climbed the East Buttress with a Scotsman named Iain. I think soon after a couple guys were killed on this route...their belay was a manzanita bush, which pulled out.

snowflakeHCR / HCS  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 1989


October ascent of Northeast Buttress on HCR in 1989 - had to bivy 2/3 the way up when ran out of daylight (in middle of sleepless night saw a car stop near mine - when got back down there was a note from the ranger saying "call your wife - she is worried").

A few years later did an October ascent of HCS; regular route.

Used Spires Gully to go up Higher Cathedral Rock and have the best hike and view of my valley trip. I missed the use trail at the start but found it going back.
