Fun Day  Sucess!

I climbed this two days after doing the Becky/Chouinard on the South Howser Tower. We found the McTech Arete to be a stellar climb, especially the first two pitches. It was the last climb we did that trip, as the weather crapped out.

Wow  Sucess!

What a fantastic route. Unfortunately had to wait for two other groups to start up before we got on the route. Would have been OK except that we were baking in the sun. It was about 30 degrees that day! Still had tons of fun on this route which is truly of the highest quality.

McCool  Sucess!

Liz and I climbed this after our big day on Bug Spire and the clean and dry rock was a joy. Except for the final pitch. Rather than scramble to the summit, for some reason I led the direct choss variation straight to the top. That was a mistake as the crack ended about two thirds of the way up and the jugs I was planning on running it out on came loose in my hands. Yikes! A desperate traverse to the crumbly left arete put me back on track.

Nice rainy day route  Sucess!

Cool route, good to do during inclement weather because you can bail at any point.
