Great route on excellent rock.
Also climbed Red Bush.
With Jim & Scott.
Fun simple climb with alpine feel 10 minutes off the road. Really dug the second pitch! We made it 3 pitches with a 70m and scrambled off the back into the chute. No need to rappel.
Bailed on trip into Palisades due to illness, this was our consolation prize. Would like to check this out in winter.
Reg. Route with the Gazelle. Interesting climbing. The stuff you climb is pretty darn solid, but the stuff that's lying around is loose as hell. Met Joel, on his first trad, multi-pitch solo...
Climbed the West Face route w/ Bart and Tom. Clean, beautiful granite. The cruxes are thin, and the route eats up small nuts and cams. The summit block is a real neat 5.6 unprotected scramble from the rap station. There's a rusty 1/4 bolt at the top if you want to trust it.
Ray Regalado leading. Lots of loose stuff flying...
Nice roadside climb.
Had the place to ourselves.
Awesome high-altitude multi-pitch climb with a super cool rappel off the back side. Loose scree and boulders coming down but worth the exposure and views. Good rock quality, one tough crack towards the end.
Always proves to be a great climb no matter how many times.
Shirley & I swapped leads up the West Face. Spectacular rock, fun climbing, nice setting.
AWESOME climb! Sustained and exposed. Not far from the road, but still has an alpine feeling.
Nice! I'd like to play around on this rock in the summer. It was a freezing start but the sky cleared and the sun came out. Just did the regular route but that last left facing crack is a bitch in plastic boots! Good workout. Went without the gloves for the last two pitches.
Climbed the West Face. Very nice climb.
Good "rest day" climbing. :)
Did Cucumbers, Doug Robinson's fine route. Three pitches of splendid cracks and liebacks. More direct than the West Face, although one less pitch. Highly reccommend.
Great climb obviously. Third pitch is the best. Will be back to do again. Climbing partner Caroline Schaumann.
Climbed back in my good'ol climbing days. Great crack route in beautiful scenery. I remember trying to hop over the approach boulders like Doug Robinson in the old Chouinard catalog
The .10a parts didn't feel like .10a, but a couple of the .8 and .9 parts sure gave me a workout!
