Alex WoodSnow Storm-West Cracks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2013

Alex Wood

We started the West Crack just as a small snow squall was moving through. We thought it would clear up, but it didn't. After finishing pitch two, it was a white out snow storm. The finger crack on pitch three was seething with water and freezing cold. At one point, a Yosemite Ranger yelled up to ask and asked us if needed help. We didn't, but we were ready to get the hell out of there. Amazing climb with not so amazing conditions.

Two awesome 4 pitch routes. Blown Away is highly recommended as the first two pitches of West Crack which we did twice.

Great climbing. Followed Diggler up West Crack in 2006. In 2009 led some of the Guide Cracks and followed zelito up Alimony Cracks. This time swapped leads up West Crack in the morning, and did fourth class walkoff, then saw lisae at Guide Cracks around lunchtime. Led Alimony Cracks and then tr'd one of the Guide Cracks in my approach shoes in the afternoon.

WMLAlimony Cracks + Guide Cracks  Sucess!

WML

Took Xavier out for his first crack climbs on the Southern Flank; those guide cracks are great for teaching all sizes of jams and fairly fun little climbs!

Alimony Crack is awesome!!!!! Definitely worth the short hike. Can also access Guide/Alimony/Fingertip zone easily after warming up at the Western Front

Followed Dirk (Diggler) on one of the most strenuous routes I have done to date. Panoramic views of Fairview Dome and other peaks around Tuolumne.

Had two days off, so headed out to Tuolumne with Mary and climbed West Crack (5.9). Stopped by the south flank on the walk out and did Alimony Cracks (5.8) and P1 of Great Circle (5.9). A nice day, followed by burgers at the Whoa Nellie Deli in Lee Vining.

MichaelJCooke Book/Crescent Arch  Sucess!

MichaelJ

Did both routes this summer/fall. CB (10a) and CA (10b--although many, myself among them, dispute this) both follow huge diehedrals on opposite sides of the west face. The former is hard to see until you're right under it (and always cold); the latter one of the most memorable looking lines you'll ever see driving down 120 (and right in the sun). The cruxes are all delicate climbing on slick rock. Excellent climbs for new 5.10 leaders.

Decent climb, had fun. Thank you to my climbing partner Michael! The book said mostly 5.9 with a 10b at the end of the climb, but neither my partner, nor I, felt there was anything like 10b on the route. A little bit of 5.9 and a lot of 5.8, any day spent on rock, climbing, is a great day!!

Nice line on West Crack. I led the first pitch, which isn't the crux and don't let nobody nohow tell you that it is. Followed the rest of the pitches. Almost puked after pulling the roof on pitch two. Finger crack near the top is absolutely stellar. Rapped off in darkness.

Great route. My wife led the stouter pitches and I followed with consternation then glee. Fine, fine line.

Crescent Arch (July 13, 2008). Wo, wo, wow!!! Beautiful line - real pleasure to climb! Swapped leads with Shirley. Only headache was the darkening sky & occasional distant rumble (things that would materialize into rain the next day).

West Crack (Sept. 2, 2006). Our 1st climb in the Meadows. Shirley led P1 and the finger pitch up higher. Granite with so many embedded crystals was a 1st for us. Very cool. Should've had the foresight to print the ST - initially ended up trying something runout to the left of west crack thinking I was ON West Cracks (dumb, dumb, dumb).

Climbed this route during a "tour of the classics" day that included Hermaphrodite Flake to the Boltway (South Crack had slow parties on it), West Crack, and Fairview Dome's Regular Route. This is a stellar route with amazing climbing and solid protection. It was made even more enjoyable by linking pitches with a 70m rope. The walk off isn't bad at all - it's steep hiking down grippy granite slabs that are covered in huge knobs.
