Route Climbed: Southeast Side Date Climbed: Summer 04  Sucess!

It was a good Class 3 scramble. There were some children in the group that had to turn back, but it is pretty damn easy.

Cold first pitch, but what a great climb! My first in the park, and in Cali. A good start, I'd say!

With Scott, Bob and Ed. Clear weather and clean rock. Worth climbing.

Climbed with Brian Decker. Awesome route. One of the best, if not the best, rock climbs I've done. Yeah, the second half is a scramble, but what a scramble! We did the technical part in three long pitches and then simulclimbed the rest of the way. Running water on the first two pitches made it somewhat more difficult.

Went for the afternoon start and tail-gunner position on the route, worked out fine. Avoided the congo line and slept in!

Route Climbed: Marmot Ridge Date Climbed: July 1972  Sucess!

Alan Vick and I did this climb on a lark the same day we climbed Daff Dome. This is not a route of great difficulty, but it is a route of great charm and wonderful views, well within the capabilities of intermediate climbers looking for big-climb atmosphere without big-climb logistics. The half-mile walk between the two sections is a great opportunity to simply enjoy the Tuolumne scenery and the Sierra sun. Enjoy!

What a great climb. I love the endless cracks and that slowly easing-up angle. Spent a nice day on here, then woke up the next morning to find that all hell had broken loose.

Route Climbed: regular route, lucky streaks Date Climbed: 2003-2004  Sucess!

Have had extremely enjoyable days on both these routes. These routes are so good that a beginner trad climber should be along to allow you to lead every single great pitch. The 10d section on lucky streaks is one move and has a very good midsize nut placement to protect it.

Route Climbed: Regular Route (North Face) III-IV, 5.9 Date Climbed: October 2, 1990  Sucess!

Partner: Steve Reynolds

Climbed this on our honeymoon, with the rope we first met each other over. Descended in the dark (got a really late start): walking down the back side under the full moon, the granite's mica crystals glittered like millions of diamonds.

Route Climbed: The Great Pumpkin III, 5.8 Date Climbed: Labor Day Weekend 1986  Sucess!

Bob Lindgren, Miguel Carmona and I climbed this fun, clean face climb over Labor Day weekend in 1986. I remember the upper two pitches had one or two 1/4" bolts each per pitch, very runout face. This was very good climb for the grade.

Route Climbed: Lucky Streaks, III, 5.10 D variation Date Climbed: Labor Day weekend 1986

Bob Lindgren, Miguel Carmona and I climbed the route during Labor Day Weekend of 1986. I remember great pitch around the overhang which Miguel led by the 10D variation. Several of the upper pitches were vertical and we were "lucky" to have belay seats with us. Great weekend made terrible by the death of Allan Chaneles on Daff Dome's "Apparition".

Route Climbed: Regular Route, IV, 5.9 Date Climbed: Labor Day weekend 1984

Miguel Carmona and I climbed the Regular Route in 1984. My climbing notes say that the climb was fairly good, but not really one of "Fifty Classics". The first pitch had running water on it. There were only some five pitches of real technical climbing, rest was a scramble to the top. The next day, we climbed a much better route, the Regular Route on Third Pillar of Dana.
