Several times  Sucess!

I give weekly talks on top of the rock - no better spot to do a program from!

Lots of fun!  Sucess!

Rappelled down the east side and top-roped Bear damage and another one close to it. We also climbed the stairs to the top.

Great day

Great View!  Sucess!

Climbed the stairs to the top. Wonderful weather and view. Sure were lots of people, though (we'd been in Death Valley the previous few days, and there's no one there in June!).

Easy and hard  Sucess!

Easy hike...also climbed bear damage and flight of stares.

Nice climb up the stairs - with a great view from the top. Visited Crystal Cave on the same day - that's also really interesting. Saw a couple of bears near the road.

Route Climbed: The easy route, the stairs! Date Climbed: June 1999  Sucess!

I've climbed up the stairs to the top of Moro Rock many, many, many times. But the first time was back in June of 1999. I used to work in the park and I did interpretive talks from the top of Moro Rock. What a great job that was :) Me and fellow park workers also used to watch the 4th of July Fireworks from the rock. Good times!

Went up early to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately, it was so cloudy that I couldn't see 15 feet ahead of me. On the way back down it began snowing and continued snowing and storming for the next 24 hours.

Fun, easy little peak to get. Great views from the top.

Route Climbed: multiple Date Climbed: Aug 2000  Sucess!

Climbed many off route pitches at the base looking for the right route. After a close call with a Rattle snake we stepped on, and a Bear grumbling on the other side of a Bush when we backed off the snake, we decided to give up.

We hiked back up and did 3 or 4 bolted routes on the side of the face, hiking to the top on the last route. Beautiful white light hit the western Sierra from the top of the summit.

Climbed with Schaffer...

Route Climbed: Stair Trail Date Climbed: July 2005  Sucess!

I walked up the Moro Trail with my 7 and 9 year old boy and Girl. While this route isn't the most exciting-I can share with you-this short climb inspired my children to seek out other more challenging climbs

Route Climbed: Off Ramp Date Climbed: May, 30 2005  Sucess!

I just got around to posting this. Went up with Jan, Conor and David. Perfect conditions and swifts whizzing by made it memorable.

Route Climbed: The Stairs Date Climbed: July 23, 2005  Sucess!

It was a pretty easy .25 mile. The view was awesome, and being up there really gives you a great appreciation of anyone who climbs another route up, or who climbs the Sierras you can see in the distance.

Route Climbed: South Crack, Pennies on the Patio, Bear Damage, Flight of Stares, Off ramp, Stair Trek, And Tom Champions A Poser!! Date Climbed: Many Times!  Sucess!

I love this rock, I'm a local and i work in the park. I get to look at it every day. I'm thankful for those gods of the past for putting up some great routes. Need any info, drop me a letter.

Route Climbed: The "Link" to the "Offramp" Date Climbed: June 25 2005  Sucess!

We had a nice easy day, getting the ropes out and going up on the west face a few pitches. Nice exposure, cool breeze, easy rock where gear goes well and the feel is good, and so it was. We topped out to a tourist frenzy of pics and questions. We left smiling! If your interested in getting back on the rock after you've been away awhile, this is a great multi-pitch route thats easy. It took us 3 hours for 5 pitches.

Route Climbed: Pennies on the patio, Bear Damage, and Flight of Stairs Date Climbed: June, 22 2005  Sucess!

It was a great day of climbing with my buds Josh and Dave. It was my first time on Pennies, surely not my last though, what a great climb.

Route Climbed: Walk up Date Climbed: February, 1993  Sucess!

Scrambled up this with a few friends while on a cross country ski trip. Too bad it's not closer to home, I'd like to do some of the technical routes, but it's just too far to drive for what you get, especially with J-tree so close to SoCal...

Route Climbed: the stairs Date Climbed: August 2002  Sucess!

I'll admit it, I took the easy way up... great views though.

Route Climbed: The Stair Route Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2004  Sucess!

Some climbing routes were closed due to nesting falcons, so we free soloed the stairs. Very awesome view but lots of people!! Heard six different languages on the way up.. Chimney Rock area had been closed earlier in the week because of falcons but was open when we got there Saturday, thank goodness. Climbed Chimney Rock Spire and the Crystal Wall.

Route Climbed: Moro Rock Trail Date Climbed: May 15, 2004  Sucess!

Walked up to the top to check out the view. A little overcast, but there were still great views of the Great Western Divide and the canyon of the Marble Fork Kaweah River down below.
