Climbed Old Woman twice, did the Tyrolean traverse between Old Man/Woman, still haven't bagged the Old Guy yet.
Great climb, perfect weather. shared the route with one other group. Even had people parked in the turn out on the road watching with binoculars and taking pictures! Pretty cool stuff.
A great day on the rocks with my wife! Drove down from Portland on Saturday morning and were back home by 7pm Saturday evening. The adventure was spiced up due to a collapsed bridge over the raging Boulder Creek (see photo). The climbing was very enjoyable. Had the whole place to ourselves. Perfect weather. According to the summit register, we had the 2nd ascent of Old Man this year. Also, we were impressed by the register on top of Old Woman - the first entry predates my birth by a year! Pretty cool stuff. Will probably go back to do some more pinnacles in the area sometime in the fall.
Climbed this route with Brian S. on a cold and wet (constant drizzle) May weekend. We took only one rope and minimal gear, so as to make a fast dash for the top, as we had to be back in Portland by 4:00. We climbed the route in 3 pitches - 1 to the notch, 2, to the cave (slight hole- that was out of the wind and rain) and 3 to the summit. The only fixed pro on the route was one rusty piton near the top that was placed before I was born (according to the summit log) One or two 3.5 or 4'' cams work to protect the crux traverse from one hand crack to the next. Great route on really solid rock with great protection all the way up. Awesome view from the top. Rappels can be one double rap to the ground (recommended) or two single raps - one to the notch (first belay) and one rap from the slings on a horn to the ground between Old Man and Old Woman.
