zoomlocoTHE CLASSIC  Sucess!


led all 3 pitches os. I have a hard time imagining a more perfect climb. stemmed to lieback p2- maybe not easier but certainly a lot prettier that way.

DebWaited So Long  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2011


I let the start of this beast freak me out 8 years ago, but I finally did! SO MUCH LIE-BACKING! It's not so scary now. Awesome route with a little bit of everything.

StevieRayGreat Climb  Sucess!


This was my first climb at Tahquitz in 2007, what a great way to be introduced to a historic climbing spot. Bring two #4 C4s.

Had the entire Tahquitz Rock all to ourselves on a gorgeous mid-winter day. Ivy let me lead all 3 pitches... loved this route, hope to climb it again.

Still fun despite waiting ~2 hrs for the self-professed "fast" party ahead of us.

ChugachManAwesome  Sucess!


Was one of my first routes at Tahquitz, and fondly remembered as a fantastic day. Loved the first two pitches.

fatdadA fun and historic route  Sucess!


I've been climbed at Tahquitz since the late 70s and have done this route a couple of times since. I always like to imagine what it felt like to Royal Robbins when he first freed this in the 50s. A palpable sense of history to it. I never found any problem with the first (crux) pitch, but always felt kind of knackered by the second. Go figure.

The start is pretty intimidating and I was debating whether I wanted to risk the runout overhanging start. I went for it and it was pure joy from there. Challenging but beautiful!

Great day. Sweet start leading to a great exposed section. Then off the top in a true classic.

jmcwhat a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2008


Open Book and then Whodunnit. I followed the first two pitches and now I have to work on my crack technique and come back to lead them

atavistCrack kills...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 18, 2008


Awesome climbing. For me, the top of the second pitch feels much harder than anything on the first pitch. I guess my technique in cracks still needs improvement. I was pretty tired after leading all pitches on Whodunit and Open Book back to back.
