Climbed with Machelle. Easy lead on good rock. A fun route but seemed sliffer than rated on the traverse to top of second pitch.

Saber Route  Sucess!

This was my first multi-pitch rock climb and part of my 13-day mountaineering course. I had a blast! It was a great route for us beginners! Very satisfied with the climb.

Climbed Saber in the evening, fun route, although it felt alot harder than 5.5. Maybe we were off route. Either way it was a great climb.

Route Climbed: Midway  Sucess!

A beautiful day!! Cold morning, but day was clear and the rock was warm by the 1st pitch of midway. tricky 1st pitch (face/chimney, jogged up the next 2 pitches of friction. good stuff! There's a hueco big enough to bivy in midway up the third pitch. Incredible view of the river!!! Great place to hang out at the top.

Sum stuffin on Castle

June 2008:
Crack Of Doom. Probably screwed up near top of P1 & eneded up on "hard" terrain.

April 2006:
Damnation Crack. I should've brought a #5 Camalot to make the upper half less stressful. Though not very hard, the flaring chimney up top is not trivial either. Nice route.

Angel Crack. Got 1st pitch of it clean. Nice 5.7 (per Beckey ;)

Midway. 2X, with 2nd time being when took my little brother for his second "multi" pitch (well, 2-pitch) climb.

Saints. 5.8-5.8+ Very nice. (June '04)

Canary. 5.8-5.9 Outstanding. (May '04)

Fault/Catapult. 5.6/5.8 Very nice. Got rained off on Logger's Ledge (June '04)

Two very fun routes in a quick afternoon of climbing. Climbed part of the Midway direct but ended up traversing back onto Midway. Finished it off by climbing Saber.

Route Climbed: Midway Date Climbed: May 31, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed with jtschanz this fun 3-pitch rock. I don't know how Jim squeezed through the chimney on the second pitch but I almost got myself stuck in it. It was nice to be on dry and warm rock after two days of cold up at Colchuck Peak.

Climbed with Haydar after coming down from Colchuck the previous day. Fantastic route - every pitch was more fun than the one before it. Definitely want to come back and climb some more on this rock.

Route Climbed: Catapult/Canary Date Climbed: March 2004  Sucess!

This is a great rock. My first WA climbing experience, and I'll be back. The roof on Catapult was fun, the one on Canary was incredible. And we saw Peregrines through the rangers scope on the summit.
