This was a very long and complicated scramble. Not including the approach or descent, the route itself took me 6 hrs.
Did Positive Vibrations in June 2013. Swapped leads, led first of the two 5.11 crux pitches. Great climb.
July 2012 Did Red Dihedral. Led both 5.10 pitches. Awesome climb. Not as hard or fun as North Buttress of Merriam though.
Sept 2012 Beeline (5.10-) car to car. Led P 1, 2, 4, 6 of this climb. Good hand cracks etc.
long day on the Red Dihedral. Hiked out in the dark with one failing headlamp, and we almost got eaten by the swamp.
Climbed the Red Dihedral with the Gazelle. Good, but not great route. Crux seems easier than 10b/c.
Climbed this fantastic route with Bob Cable, the 4th and 6th pitches are stellar. Dont forget to check out the super ball.
An intimidating route. We pulled it car to car in 18 hrs with no falls. One of my prouder ascents.
A fun route. Great climbing with a short crux. Car to car
This ended up being a suprisingly long day.
The route was cool but Positive Vibrations looks like the sh*t!!
Took over half the day to ascend this long and difficult ridge, passed by the Incredible Hulk wall, saw a couple climbers beginning a rappel, and continued to the top.
