Route Climbed: From the Trailhead on the main road. Date Climbed: July 20th, 2002
We climbed this rock early in the morning, and surpassed the crowds, and the sun. We reached the summit at about 11 am. We were able to hit a repeater in Fresno. The views were spectacular, and the climb was fairly easy and beautiful. The smells from the trees is what gets me everytime. I love the Sequoias.
Route Climbed: Sparkler 5.9 Date Climbed: September 2001
The fun really begins as the route steepens.....the last three bolts! I'd say 'Sparkler' is one of the best 5.9 slab climbs I've been on....keep's you on your toes (pardon the pun)! Lots of sun though (southern exposure).....whew!
Route Climbed: Little Baldy Trail Date Climbed: See Below.....
Hiked/climbed Little Baldy numerous times during the summers of 1997, 1998 and 1999. Not really a "climb" though; more of a short, little day hike to a nice granite outcropping, with an awesome view of the Great Western Divide to the east and of Big Baldy to the west. Very nice excursion, even though it is short and simple!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
