Hobbit Book  Sucess!

Good one to solo on sight in my opinion. If I knew it trended more 5.6 then 5.7 I would have saved it for a solo ascent. Similar to doing Matthes Crest or Cathedral solo. The crux face pitch is on large 5.6 features the whole way to the corner where you are secure in the crack again. We simul climbed it in two long pitches after climbing OZ below.

Linkup with Eurotrash  Sucess!

The ST guide is right. The third pitch is the business.

Classic  Sucess!

Linked with Euro Trash, this is a classic long moderate route. Pitch 3 golden plates is amazing, but Pitch 4 is the real money with a physical undercling past a roof, and more steep laybacks all the way to the summit. Very cold, first sunshine of the day encountered when pulling up on the summit.

Spectacular !  Sucess!

Climbed with my friend K. Chaltikian - he led the first and third (runout) pitches, I led the second and last 5.7 pitches.

Fun climbing and spectacular finish. The view from the top of Mariuolumne is excellent.

We didn't do the usual approach - in the morning we started early and climbed Eurotrash, a 4-pitch 5.8 bolted route (some gear on last pitch) with an optional 5.11a mantle (had to aid on that one :) to attain the approach ledge.

Exposed approach  Sucess!

Brian Ketron and I climbed this in summer 1994. I vividly remember one very exposed move on the approach.
