dkangasGreat Downclimb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2011
Down-climbed this with Josh H. on the way to a series of fine knife-edge ridge traverses leading to Tuolumne Peak. The route begins with a fun and narrow 15ft chimney. We threw our packs down into it and committed. From above the chimney the climbing looked pretty easy, lots of big blocks and ledges. However, as we got down it turned out to be more exposed and trickier route-finding than we anticipated. At one point we wished for a rope! There were two cruxy sections, both moderately exposed and requiring hand-jams in cracks for a good hold. All in all this is a little known and very fun route. The knife-edge traverse on the way to Tuolumne is also fun and exposed. It reminded me of the NW arete of Mt. Clark.
