Went up early to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately, it was so cloudy that I couldn't see 15 feet ahead of me. On the way back down it began snowing and continued snowing and storming for the next 24 hours.

Climbed many off route pitches at the base looking for the right route. After a close call with a Rattle snake we stepped on, and a Bear grumbling on the other side of a Bush when we backed off the snake, we decided to give up.



We hiked back up and did 3 or 4 bolted routes on the side of the face, hiking to the top on the last route. Beautiful white light hit the western Sierra from the top of the summit.



Climbed with Schaffer...

I walked up the Moro Trail with my 7 and 9 year old boy and Girl. While this route isn't the most exciting-I can share with you-this short climb inspired my children to seek out other more challenging climbs

I just got around to posting this. Went up with Jan, Conor and David. Perfect conditions and swifts whizzing by made it memorable.

It was a pretty easy .25 mile. The view was awesome, and being up there really gives you a great appreciation of anyone who climbs another route up, or who climbs the Sierras you can see in the distance.

I love this rock, I'm a local and i work in the park. I get to look at it every day. I'm thankful for those gods of the past for putting up some great routes. Need any info, drop me a letter.

We had a nice easy day, getting the ropes out and going up on the west face a few pitches. Nice exposure, cool breeze, easy rock where gear goes well and the feel is good, and so it was. We topped out to a tourist frenzy of pics and questions. We left smiling! If your interested in getting back on the rock after you've been away awhile, this is a great multi-pitch route thats easy. It took us 3 hours for 5 pitches.

It was a great day of climbing with my buds Josh and Dave. It was my first time on Pennies, surely not my last though, what a great climb.

Steve Larson

Scrambled up this with a few friends while on a cross country ski trip. Too bad it's not closer to home, I'd like to do some of the technical routes, but it's just too far to drive for what you get, especially with J-tree so close to SoCal...

Some climbing routes were closed due to nesting falcons, so we free soloed the stairs. Very awesome view but lots of people!! Heard six different languages on the way up.. Chimney Rock area had been closed earlier in the week because of falcons but was open when we got there Saturday, thank goodness. Climbed Chimney Rock Spire and the Crystal Wall.

Walked up to the top to check out the view. A little overcast, but there were still great views of the Great Western Divide and the canyon of the Marble Fork Kaweah River down below.

DebRoute Climbed: "Pennies on the Patio" and some.... Date Climbed: 3-4 April 2004  Sucess!

Deb

It was a beautiful weekend to be on the rock and I appreciated the chance to flex on some 10's. I don't know what the mess was on the northwestern side, but the ants were most unkind. New-comer Les did quite well and was patient with the warring of the minds during the route-finding fiasco.

By the way, I forgot my wind chime at Lodgepole!

Great weekend fun with Deb and Les. Climbed several sporty 10's and the ever classic 'Pennies On The Patio'. We also did some adventure climbing down on the northwestern shoulder of Moro (the first pitch of 'Journey To Ixaltan' and our very own FA ('The Lizard's Kiss, 5.8) between 'Journey To Ixaltan' and 'Rio Bravo'....details to follow on the 'Route' section of Moro Rock. The hardest section of this 2 pitch route is 5.8 (nice lead, Deb!)

1990 was one of my first experiences in overcoming height sickness. But what a view from the top! Makes you forget everything else!

Great views of the GWD to the east, and smog to the west. An old timer with the NPS told me don't go up in thunder storms. Years ago, some one was holding the metal hand rail at the trail head, and lightning hit the far end of the rail at the summit. He was, uh, hurt.

Did this with my daughters, whom were very brave in making the summit! I'm very proud of Meghann & Kathryn! I love you both very much!
