asmrzNW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2015


Penelope and I climbed the NW Ridge by hiking down to its base from the Crest. We scouted the start the day before our climb. Soloed the route after first five pitches (as recommended).
Nice route on reasonable rock.

Looped over the Thumb on my way down La Luz, after scrambling up the Knife Edge of the Shield. It felt more like ~5.4, except the one bulge with the old pin, which I avoided to its left.

Liba Kopeckova

This was my first multi pitch climb for me back in 2009 (yes, I started climbing late after raising a kid and getting my carrier going). We had a late start and finished when it was dark on the top, descent in dark and we had no lamps. It was an adventure. We reached our car at the top of Sandia Crest after midnight.

Climbed the Thumb via NW Ridge route with Yasu. Led all technical pitches. Went off-route on a couple of pitches staying close to the ridge crest. After 5 roped pitches, scrambled to the Northern and Main (South) summits. Fun route, stellar views.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2011


My first trad climb ever! Doing it in my trail running shoes made it more difficult than it should have been! But it was a great experience!
Talk about feeling small!

Beautiful day with Will and Johanna hiking up La Luz, blazing the ridge, and descending the same way.
