led all 3 pitches os. I have a hard time imagining a more perfect climb. stemmed to lieback p2- maybe not easier but certainly a lot prettier that way.

Waited So Long  Sucess!

I let the start of this beast freak me out 8 years ago, but I finally did! SO MUCH LIE-BACKING! It's not so scary now. Awesome route with a little bit of everything.

Great Climb  Sucess!

This was my first climb at Tahquitz in 2007, what a great way to be introduced to a historic climbing spot. Bring two #4 C4s.

Whoo!  Sucess!

Had the entire Tahquitz Rock all to ourselves on a gorgeous mid-winter day. Ivy let me lead all 3 pitches... loved this route, hope to climb it again.

Worth the wait  Sucess!

Still fun despite waiting ~2 hrs for the self-professed "fast" party ahead of us.

Awesome  Sucess!

Was one of my first routes at Tahquitz, and fondly remembered as a fantastic day. Loved the first two pitches.

A fun and historic route  Sucess!

I've been climbed at Tahquitz since the late 70s and have done this route a couple of times since. I always like to imagine what it felt like to Royal Robbins when he first freed this in the 50s. A palpable sense of history to it. I never found any problem with the first (crux) pitch, but always felt kind of knackered by the second. Go figure.

one word....beautiful!  Sucess!

The start is pretty intimidating and I was debating whether I wanted to risk the runout overhanging start. I went for it and it was pure joy from there. Challenging but beautiful!

True Classic  Sucess!

Great day. Sweet start leading to a great exposed section. Then off the top in a true classic.

what a day  Sucess!

Open Book and then Whodunnit. I followed the first two pitches and now I have to work on my crack technique and come back to lead them

Crack kills...  Sucess!

Awesome climbing. For me, the top of the second pitch feels much harder than anything on the first pitch. I guess my technique in cracks still needs improvement. I was pretty tired after leading all pitches on Whodunit and Open Book back to back.

Much fun  Sucess!

Climbed on my birthday - as present to myself.
Much, much fun.
