Dow Williams

With Frank. Led all the pitches and pitched it out in 7. We had Tahquitz to ourselves this mid week day which seemed like it should be unusual since the weather was stellar. Single rack through #2. Double to #.75 and a set of stoppers. A few brassies work on the crux section on the first pitch. The chimney pitch was by far my favorite. Quaint route and no harder for the grade than anywhere else I have climbed in CA.

Psyched to finally climb this one... nearly ran out of gear linking p1-2.

Hands down my favorite route at Tahquitz. Although interesting from start to end, the third pitch, with the chimney, was fantastic and made the climb for me.

Followed on all pitches, led by Michael Warren. French freed out of the chimney so I'll be back for this one.

zoomlocogood...but not THE classic  Sucess!


the route gets lots of hype...it's long, that's good, and p3 is especially good. but there are a lot of better routes at tahquitz...and I will have to disagree with the page in that open book is the definitional classic climb there...

ChugachManAgreed.... classic  Sucess!


Often swamped with people, but one of Tahquitz' best. Some fun memories from various trips up this route. The first pitch is more fun when your fingers are too cold to feel too!

Climbed with Jascha. Popular route compounded by a holiday weekend. Still fun despite waiting 30-45 min at each belay. The parties in front of us refused to link pitches adding to the pain.

Whodunit was empty. WE jumped on it. Was a little cold at the start, but warmed up quick. I lead the first pitch with 3 moves of aid through the think finger section. Might not have gone the right way. Looks like you could undercling a section or move out way left and up to the anchor. I just went straight through the middle. Was going to run the first and second pitch together with some simulclimbing however my pro caused a bit more rope drag than I wanted. Oh well.

Wonderful climb that we did as a party of 3. We hauled a couple packs through the chimney section. The route was in the shade the entire time (we got on the route at 9am and summited at 4pm). The difficulty is pretty sustained IMHO.

Open Book in the morning and Whodunnit in the afternoon. Steve Larson lead all of the hard pitches on both routes. Even though I was mostly following I was TIRED by the end of the day.

Good mix of face and crack climbing. Several roofs provide great exposure. The whole route can be well protected, especially with small to medium nuts. The chimney is pretty cool. We finished with enough time and energy to climb Open Book on the same day.

I climbed this twice between 2000 and 2002. This was just about at my technical limit. I've led every pitch on it, including the chimney twice. The big, loose block at the top of the chimney was scary.

This is the best climb I've done yet! It was a little chilly for the first few pitches but warmed up nicely. We ran it in 5 roped pitches. Some great sustained 5.7-5.8 climbing on this classic.

Climbed this again on 4-20-13,this time leading all the pitches.

Climbed this on a hot day with Joe LeMay. We hit ti in the morning, so we had shade until the last pitch of scrambling at the top. What a hoot!

Desert Solitaire

Climbed w/ Brian E. A cold cold morning (don't wake up too early for this climb... wait until the sun soaks it up!) led to awesome climbing all the way through to the top. The cracks and chimneys are a-w-e-s-o-m-e.
