ncfittonPerfect climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 29, 2006


Walked in late Saturday night and bivied overnight on the shoulder of Liberty Cap above Nevada Falls. Started the first pitch around 8.30am - we had the route to ourselves and it was perfect weather all weekend. Took us about 4.5 hours with a 50m rope - we conservatively set up more belays than we probably needed to. You can protect the runout pitches by slinging knobs and flakes.

After a long hike up, and climbing 3 pitches up the weather broke. Lightening, thunder and hail forced us to retreat. I'll have to try it again someday.

MishaFun!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Etsuko and I took two of our friends to the top. Practically, this was their first outdoor climb. Perfect weather, lots of leading and early season trail conditions made for an excellent adventure. There were a total of six parties on the route that day.

Cookie AddictGreat route  Sucess!

I and a buddy took too much gear. You need 6 quick draws, webbing for the belay stations, 3 lockers, 3 runners, a set of small nuts, a .75, #1 and # 2 Camalot, a brain bucket, rope and shoes. A water filter is nice for the hike out if you are going to from the valley and back in a day. Stash it off the main trail somewhere. The cables decent is the scarist part: one of the fat tourists fall and take you out.

Two climbs of this great route. One in 2004, one in 2005. One as a day trip, one as an overnight trip. Highly recommend either method.
