North Ridge of Mt. Conness

12-August-2006 : Looking at the summit of Mt. Conness, and the second tower on the North Ridge, taken from near the first tower. We were probably about 2.5 hours from the summit from here. It was an enjoyable scramble in approach shoes.

Nice shot!

It's on the tick list. ;^) So what did you end up doing on Sunday?

Re: Nice shot!

Thanks Carolyn ! We went up Zee Tree in the morning (I led both crux pitches), and NW Books in the afternoon (I led the first pitch), followed by a little slab practice on the ever-popular Puppy Dome.

What an excellent weekend !!

btw How was your Sunday ? Did you all make it to Murphy Canyon ?

Re: Nice shot!

Nice job leading the crux pitches on Zee Tree! That's another on the tick list that Misha's been talking about. Did you see Cathy and Shirley on NW Books? I think that's where they were going too. It really was such a wonderful climbing weekend -- the weather couldn't have been better. We goofed around on a couple of slab TRs -- a 5.9 and 5.10 -- on Pothole. I forgot the Murphy Canyon guidebook. >:^\

Re: Nice shot!

We didn't see C & S on NW Books, but that route seems to get the crowds ... there was a party above us, and two below. I really enjoyed hiking up to the top of Lembert afterwards and back down - spectacular scenery.

I should get that Tuolumne Topropes book ... more crack practice !

Re: Nice shot!

Ya -- that's the book I forgot at home, dangit. Lots of hard crack practice at Murphys. Oh well... next time.
