Dow WilliamsLucky Streaks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2013

Dow Williams

With Ken from Vegas. Only partner that helped me lead in 4 days. I actually kind of welcomed it. We combined the first two pitches and the next two pitches with a 70m rope, no worries. Made this a 4 pitch climb. The crux off the belay on pitch 3 if a true crux at the grade (5.10). Just awkward to get started. The under cling traverse on the second to last pitch was the only other real challenge on the route. Great route and how some can compare it to the regular route is beyond me. Lucky Streaks is 10 times the climb. Nice and sustained.

Bob Lindgren, Miguel Carmona and I climbed the route during Labor Day Weekend of 1986. I remember great pitch around the overhang which Miguel led by the 10D variation. Several of the upper pitches were vertical and we were "lucky" to have belay seats with us. Great weekend made terrible by the death of Allan Chaneles on Daff Dome's "The Apparition".

this time I lead, P1, P3 and P5. All clean but P3 took a lot out of me :-)
With Matt R. We were teh first party on the route, afterwards four (!) more parties showed up. Coming back around the base it was funny to see all the climbers in the upper half of the route waiting for their turn...

of a climb, one of the best I have done so far. Abundant protection and varied climbing. Climbed with Karen, led P2,4 (past the traverse) and 6. Got stuck behind a slower party so the route took a little longer than expected. I have to come back and lead the other pitches.

fatdadAn amazing climb  Sucess!

I climbed this back in the early 80s after spending all summer in the Valley and Meadows, thinking it would be a cruise. We climbed it no problem but lots of the pitches demand respect and, since then, many of them have been bumped up a grade or two in difficulty.

The parking lot was full on a beautiful summer Sunday but there was no one else on the route. I led the climb and Liz followed her first 5.10 route with aplomb. Finding the traverse on the P1 and figuring out the moves on the 10d crux cost me quite a bit of time but everything else went smoothly. One of the best climbs I've done.
