July 16th, 2005 - Above the Wind Tunnel we coiled our ropes and free-soloed up to a notch to the right, and back around to the left to reach this spot. Climb up the cracks on the left for a fun full pitch to reach the small Boulder Ledge at the base of the Friction Pitch - the crux of the Upper Exum Ridge. To avoid this pitch, you can also ascend the gulley to the right (often iced over, as it is in the photo), or ascend the chimney in the center corner (5.6-5.7).

Sounds like fun

As hard of a day as it was, gotta love that mountain. Nice TR.

Re: Sounds like fun

Thanks! I can't wait to go back there - now to fix the typos in the TR!
