The corner on the first pitch was slippery! I fell out of it twice before pulling through.
Did this after Zee Tree on Pywiack Dome. A very nice way to end a beautiful day.
Good warm-up for Cathedral SE Buttress the following day.
Followed Katie up this route. She wanted all the leads! Luckily she got tired and took a [ground] fall [:P] at the end of the 5.9 crack, and I got to (hangdog) that section and lead the traverse to the next belay (which we shared with Tim and Chris).
Cruised up after West Crack. Led the 5.9 var after following Tommi up last year. Committing move but well protected.
Led P1 & the topout walkoff. Fun, easy climb! Next time I'll have to do the 5.9 variation. It looked like fun, and not too long, especially with the fixed piece.
One of my first ever trad leads. Took the sharp end on the first and second pitches. Fun undercling traverse.
Legs ashakin' the whole time!
retreated after a few pitches, pretty much just climbed this to avoid the exit/entry fee after climbing cathedral and eichorn the same day.
My first climb to start the week in Tuolumne. I'll probably do this one again.
Did accidentally the 5.9 variation. Easy and safe to protect.
Climbed this route because I hadn't. It was fun, easier than it looked.
Climbed with Laura Molnar on a nice though windy afternoon. Led all pitches, good fun.
Hiked up to the top of the dome just for kicks and descended class 2 to the road - about a quarter mile of hiking on the road to return to cars.
Also climbed in August 2006.
A fun quick climb. A good warm up or intro trad route.
My first lead; it was fun and short, but at the end we asked "why did we rope up?". In all seriousness, a quick little route to climb if you just arrived in the afternoon and want to do something before the wilderness permit office closes.
A nice warm-up jaunt.
