Fun Climb  Sucess!

Climbed with shanahan96, reached the arete via a variation of the east face north that took us into the northeast gully to finish.

First trad lead  Sucess!

Borrowed some cams and combined with my tiny rack of nuts and slings to do my first lead. Stretched out the rope on the first pitch and built my first "oh shit" anchor. Rapped back over to the route from a tree... What a day!

Another Classic  Sucess!

Still working my way through Roach's "classics" and decided it was time to revisit the First. This was a neat route and would be a good solo. We finished with the 5.6 direct variation to the summit and had a great time!

Long mellow fun  Sucess!

A long, super-fun solo. Knobby enough that running shoes are fine.

Solo Marathon  Sucess!

Soloed the third second and first rt from the trailhead in 3 hours 28 minutes.

I went up an interesting route next to the direct route. I found some 5.6-5.7 friction moves with some good air below your feet. Joined on the final part of the North Arete. AWESOME!

reunion  Sucess!

Needed a quick solo with threatening t-storms. Attempted to find the Fandango start, which seemed too easy but I think I may have been on route at the start. At any rate traversed over to the N Arete but further down from the official start. It was much easier than I remembered (trail runners were fine). Downclimbed the SW Face.

Yo  Sucess!

I climbed this a couple times in the '70's then again in '08, for "old times sake".

total first, bottom to top  Sucess!

5/1/10- climbed a 5.5 route up the east face gully to reach the north arête. love the arête, and it was intriguing to note the progress i've made over the past year.

6/5/09- climbed the east face north side(5.2) and north arête(5.4) with steve. i led the entire route, 7 pitches total. we had a blast. the climbing and exposure totally jump another level when you hit the arête! what a climb!

Fun route, great day  Sucess!

Climbed with Timmothy Pearl, the reunion climb. A very mellow, fun 7 pitch climb. Great practice for stuff we will be doing later this summer.

Great day, fun route  Sucess!

7 pitches, lots of options. Eric Holle and I took the right-side of the east face to the arete and up. Fun rappel too!
