mattnolandRight of Center  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2013


Met up with an old friend and climbing partner in Mammoth and scrambled up the face, staying generally right of the "normal" route looking for steep slabs, which we found and enjoyed. Good to be back in the High Sierra again!

Vitaliy M.

Climbed a very prominent arete to the right of the gully which splits up and right around the red rock band. Climbed a headwall that was 99% never climbed before- sketchiest moves I have done while soloing. Had a lot of fun in the end. Rock above wasn't bad at all and arete was amazing!

Fun route on beautiful day! First time at altitude in a while... Descent was really loose.

Climbed with Laura Molnar. We brought rock shoes and only used them on the first 5.2 part -- sticky rubber approach shoes were sufficient for the rest. The slabs were probably my favorite part. A geologist's dream climb.

Laura found us a nice use trail down the hanging valley. Brush wasn't bad, but maybe worse if you are wearing shorts.

A fun route, not much class 5 encountered. Upper gully not as bad as advertised, just stay closer to the bigger rocks.

WMLfun route, resist the urge to probe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2010


Fun, long route, nice 4th class climb with the occasional low 5th move. Probing on this route is not a good idea as it is surrounded by VERY poor rock. Snow was on the entrance portion, took some 5th class cracks to the left to make it interesting. Snow was in the middle of the route below the red band, so I wandered up an arete. Mixed bag of rock there, needless to say, some good, some bad. Snow on the Croft-designated descent gully, so alternative means had to be found (pretty clear cut)

Excellent winter ascent, kept it fun by travelling over mixed terrain to save the snow for our ski and snowboard drop back down the line.

Climbed with Jascha. Lots of waterfalls and silt on the slabs this time. Saw a rubber boa on the trail on the descent.

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007


With calves full of lactic acid from Dana Couloir, up the gulley we go. Totally loved this climb! Easy 5th class soloing and just long enough to be fulfilling. Descent was a bummer but it was quick....wear long pants. =8O

Don't forget the mosquito repellent! Fun route, except for the endless sea of scree below the summit. No summit register.

Jim CarrDon't wander off route
The rock is good in the gully, but turns to garbage quickly if you wander off route. I found out the hard way.
