DebRoute Climbed: North Gulley Descent Date Climbed: 28 February 2004


Dave and I had a fantastic time swimming our way, in sometimes chest-deep snow, to the backside of Tahquitz Rock after watching Phil and Jack on their first pitch of ice climbing in the Northeast Buttress.

We would've made the summit of Tahquitz Rock if the visibilty had been more than 30' - darn it, just another 50' through the clouds!

DebRoute Climbed: Dave's Deviation 5.9, Piton Pooper 5.8, Upper Royal's Arch 5.8 Date Climbed: September 2003  Sucess!


From bottom to top, this was a wonderfully variant multi-pitch trip; hand jams on Dave's, pumping liebacks on Piton Pooper (that's a 5.8?!), anal constriction at the start of Upper Royal's when that barn-sized swarm of bees came up the Trough, and a bit of skittering on slab with weird pro on URA. All in all, an exhilerating, tiring climb.

Such nice granite, and a great place to learn route finding. Ended up taking lots of groups up Angels Fright. So many other routes yet to explore.

This was my first experience rock climbing. I was hooked. Nice climb with some good exposure for a newbie.

tonyoRoute Climbed: Angel's Fright Date Climbed: May, 2000  Sucess!


Fun climb, but too many people on this and nearby routes. Lots of waiting... After the climb we went up the first pitch of Fingertrip, which was also nice. We hung our packs in a tree at the base of the climb and came back to them covered in ants. When all was said and done, though, it was a awesome day. Perfect weather and great company.

Dave DalyRoute Climbed: 'Coffin Nail' (5.7) and 'Traitor Horn' (5.8) Date Climbed: 31 May 1998  Sucess!

Dave Daly

Paired up with Dr. John Ewing to prepare for our first Whitney ascent (East Buttress). Short of the exposure on Traitor Horn, the climbing wasn't all that stout as I had anticipated. On the other hand, the second pitch of 'Coffin Nail' had me thinking about it rating....5.4? Other than 'Amphitheater Chute' (backcountry sandbag!) on Michael Minaret, that's one of the hardest 5.4's I've done (an awkward, slopping ramp that wants to initially spit you off into 300 feet of air!)

Did this route with Deb just before snow dumped on Idyllwild the next day. Glad I was able to share the experience with her. May your romance with climbing be always exhilirating. Let the adventures begin....

Here's to Mile High....

DebRoute Climbed: Finger Trip 5.7 Date Climbed: 6 January 2001


Yahoo! This was my first interaction with real rock and the beginning of a love/hate relationship with Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks. And I owe it all to the constant climbing babblings of Dave Daly.

Thanks for the introduction Dave!
