wdimpflFirst multi pitch climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 15, 1967


Date Uncertain. I think I climbed this with Fred Rhoads when we were undergrads at UCI. We descended by the Friction Route. I was disappointed with how anesthetic the climb was. Later I enjoyed the White Maiden's Walkaway much better. I had no mentor, but found that I loved climbing, coaxing friends to come with me so I could have a belay.

Later I climbed Angels Fright and the Left Ski Track, and some other routes I don't remember the name of.

awiseclimberThe Trough - Great 1st Trad Lead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2012


Climbed the Trough with @theflyingmountaineer - his first trad multi-pitch. It was a perfect day and perfect first trad multi-pitch climb. Highly recommend for those in the area. Route finding is simple and there's great spots to set belay stations.

JayPThe Trough, clear conditions!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2011


Great cool conditions for climbing The Trough with no one on the rock! Some snow and ice patches down on the first pitch (and getting to the first pitch) but clear beyond. Friction descent was also free from ice which I was concerned with going into the climb.

zoomlocodownclimb not recommended early season  Sucess!


not as fun of a desent as you would think. climb is good for 5.4, meaning not trivial to solo downclimb, especially soaking wet with melting snow... definitely a bit sketch, glad there were solid jams

Got to see Blair do his first big trad lead on this. All-in-all it is just a slog fest.

BlairFirst Time to Tahquitz (at last)  Sucess!


Climbed this route with Deb, my first multi pitch and my first visit to this awesome piece of granite. Finest rock these hands have grappled with ever. Climbed in good style and in good time, summited and couldnt have been a better day.

UPDATED- 9-8-09 I lead the Trough, my first multi pitch lead! Thanks to Aaron Dyer for being patient with my long anchor building fiascos!

MtnLdrNice Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 12, 2007


Considered myself lucky to have found the start of the route. I think we actually found it by accident. The approach could definitely use a nice graded trail. Everything I'd read said this was a 3p climb, but we did it in two. Second lead in about 5 years, and first multi-pitch in about 7. Awesome day! Many thanks to Deb for the informative page.
