Cool shot Radek. Who took this picture? Shirley sure looks nice and relaxed at the belay. This pic really shows the route well.

Thanks Martin!

The route is a low angle slab with a very enjoyable spliter crack (some have called it the best protected 5.6 anywhere.....not sure about "anywhere" part, but the pro does seem solid and abundant). Two of our friends were climbing ahead of us and snapped this one (one of the "perks" of climbing in two parties of two).



Been looking at your photos of the N. Face of Concord climb. Good stuff! Been wanting to do that route since last year. Have you done/are considering doing the S (or is it SW) Buttress route (III, 5.7-5.8) up Cutthroat across the highway? Looks like a fun one.
