New Wild 4th Class Variation On Clyde Minaret

New Wild 4th Class Variation On Clyde Minaret

During the 2006 Sierra Challenge, Audrau, Rick and myself discovered a wild 4th class variation on the southern side of the arete of the Rock Route of Clyde Minaret, directly above the Starr Route. This variation practically finishes right at the summit block. A beautiful section with loads of air under your feet!!

Re: Wow

Very! But it was such a gem to find as a variatio. I would recommend it more than I would continuing up the remaining section of the Rock Route....

you might consider naming it the Surprisingly Survivable variation!
