September 2003 - Looking down the class 3 Rock Route on Clyde Minaret, surely one of the wildest class 3 routes (sans the class 4 'step') in the Sierras! I'm in the foreground.

It definitely was a blast climbing on that route, although the rockfall, while not very prevalent, was very dangerous. Keep an eye on the members in your group when climbing this route!

This is a kick ass shot, Wombat. Is the rock on the Clyde as crappy as it looks from below.

In a way, yes. The rock matrix itself seemed really secure, and there wasn't much loose scree to slip on, but there was always the occasional microwave-sized boulder that could be unlodged with a flick of your heel!
