haishanSolo NW Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


Having climbed the route roped a couple times before, enjoyed it even more solo. Climbed around the left corner towards the top, easy going but pretty hairy exposure! Met several other parties on the route...

I really enjoyed this climb, and especially the crack variation at the end.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


Supertopo says that this route is 14 pitches long...
We simulclimbed it in 1.5 hours, with a couple stops along the way to rerack.
Going down (to Tenaya Lake) from the summit was my least favorite part.
There was a party of 2 free soloing the route. they were on their way to Matthes Crest, then Cathedral Peak...all that in a day.

Really fun, but three on a rope can be slow.

Great day, 1st time doing a 3 person rope team. Walked a lot of pitches, roped a few too. Found a way to make hard at the end :)

Solo on my way to Cathedral Peak. A great climb right next to the car. Hard to beat.

Soloed w/ Miguel. Felt more true to the rating than the N & W Ridges of Conness.

Etsuko and I took two of our beginner friends up the route. We solo'd a half of it, simul'd a few pitches and belayed for a few pitches. Good climbing on a gorgeous day.

mow10Great route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2006


Could have left the rack in the car though. Perfect transition to mountaineering for your gym climber friends. In Boulder terms, its like climbing the First Flatiron after climbing the Third, ending with a view like Bear Pk....

MichaelJ15 pitches in 50 minutes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2006


Supertopo says this is a 15-pitch, 5.5. climb. Hmmm? I racked up with a pair of climbing shoes and a nut tool in case I needed to scrape snow off of holds. Both stayed in my knapsack. It took me 90 minutes from car to summit, about half that time on easy, low to mid 5th class ground. Maybe I was off route, as I didn't look at the topo, just climbed whatever took my fancy. Amazing summit views in all directions. Highly recommended.
