Gettin' After It!

Gato getting full value from the solitary hand crack in the upper face of Warrior I. There were some manky Beckey bolts along this crack, but the gear was great. August 10, 2007

can't believe

i missed this TR - holy sh.t, Warrior 1 looks incredible & I always wondered about it. I really want to get back there now! BTW awesome write up - you guys really "cleaned up" in one outing.

Re: can't believe

You would love this climb. My new favorite route in the Cirque. At least until I grow a pair and climb the Feather Buttress.

Re: can't believe

yeah - that Feather thing has been a w.. dream of mine too (spectacular looking but i'm chickenshit).

thanks for posting the TR B. -- real inspirational stuff (esp in dead of winter).

right after the handcrack...

What did you do? Did you face climb up and left? Or go immediately left? We went right into twin cracks on the right side of the headwall, and up to little perch...and decided we were off route and had to bail.

Re: right after the handcrack...

We went up and right as well, past thin face and into the twin cracks. We belayed at that perch with the pins, and then wrapped around further right and into another thuggish crack that took us right to the top.
