ChugachManFun route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2009


Fun time with Luke. Brought doubles through BD#2, then a 3, 4, and 6 (new style) (no #5). The 4 wasn't necessary, but was used. I didn't feel I missed the 5, but liked having the #6 in the OW, and thought it was worth bringing. The old bolts on the route were pretty cool looking, but I wouldn't want to fall on them (wish I'd taken a pic of them too). We used a 70 m, and with about 10 feet of simul-climbing on the first pitch, were able to get to the start of the OW in 2 rope-stretchers for about 6 pitches total, and some scrambling to the top. Didn't bring packs, but dressed warm, and were happy to not have a pack in the OW. Really fun route.

kovarpaQuality route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2009


with Michal. I lead P2, P4, P6 and then some random pitches towards the end. None of it was really super hard, the OW was easier than I thought. The 5.8 (haha) "chimney" on P6 caught me by surprise. Do yourself a favor and remove your backpack before starting P6. On P4 (OW), I lead and then we hauled packs on one rope and Michal followed on the other.
Total climbing time 8.5 hrs.

MichaelJEasier than Copper Penny  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2009


Climbed with Scott. I led the odd pitches, which gave me the OW, which I didn't think was that bad at all, nowhere near as hard as Copper Penny in the valley, which is the same grade. The start of the 10a section protects well with a gold c4 and a medium nut (not to mention the ancient bolt). And you can slide a #6 up this section and well into the 5.8 OW section as well. Some of the upper pitches on the route had fiddly gear that would make them fairly heads up for someone leading near their limit. All in all, a good adventure climb.

poorboy44Harder than Keeler Needle?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2008


Cool route, I found the OW difficult (harder than Keeler Needle?) Maybe I'm just out of shape. The wall gets sun about 10:30 AM.
