Fairweather1st climb Tabby Treat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 1973


Took climbing lesson from the shop in town along with a few other explorer scouts.
Within a couple more years climbing became my life and I visited Suicide, Tahquitz, or Joshua Tree hundreds of times through the late 80's.
Climbed nearly all established routes within my ability (5.10-5.11) at Suicide.
A few of my favorites I did multiple times including Sundance, Ten Carrot Gold, Serpentine, and Flower of High Rank.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2013


First time up Suicide. I've looked at it from across the valley for years but never made it over there being always focused on Tahquitz. Decided Surprise would be a good first route. Easy approach and a great slab to crack! It was also cool to stand at the base of Valhalla and check it out.

Nice and gradual ascent. You hardly notice the vertical. Great views. Rested, and had a snack at the nice open area at the edge, then went the extra feet for the summit register. Perfect weather.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

OBC was the last route I did on Suicide Rock. Starting in 1976, had big fun on the ultra-classic faces and on Insomnia, Valhalla, Flakes of Wrath, Etude, Jonny Quest, Flower, etc. On-sight free-soloed Graham Crackers in 1980. Once belayed Tony Yaniro on Paisano Overhang; he made this 12d off-width look like 5.9, and led it with only a couple of borrowed tri-cams...

Daddy-daughter peak number two on this day via the climber's trail. We enjoyed the quiet trail through the woods and incredible views from the top.

WayneShortRazors Edge  Sucess!


Razors edge (5.9 R) was my introduction to rock climbing in 1993. Only one pitch, but a very nerve racking, wafer thin flake for a newbie to tackle. Awesome!

Guilotine and Grahm Crackers. Both went well. Guilotine was hard for the grade at the chimney part. Not real experienced with chimneys though.

I hiked up here sometime in fall 1999. What impressed me most were the enormous pine cones.

TwillsExcellent rock  Sucess!


Climbed here often when I lived in LA in the '80s. Highly recommended. Fantastic slab climbing, but some really good crack climbs too.
