Regular Route (Mace)

The last pitch of the Regular Route on the mace. This is a wild step across from the sub-summit block onto the main summit with much air below your feet. The face move on the other side is about 5.8. This IMHO makes this route a classic (December 25, 2005).

Re: I'm glad you are supporting the tower

but would you support me, Radek?



Please send $100 per week to me via priority mail. Thanks.



Nice pic, BTW. How exactly do you perform this move (the route page lacks good info)? How hard is it for someone shorter than your 7'6" frame?

Re: I'm glad you are supporting the tower

I was going to make the same request of you actually (and a couple other friends ;)



Thanks for the comments. Yeah, it's definitely easier for taller folk. Shirley (5'4") had to work more (not exactly sure how she did it since follower is out of sight). For me it was a step across while grabbing the first very positive side hold. The second hold is more of a sloper (I think that's what makes it 5.8) but footwork seemed to get the job done. 2 moves on these holds and you can grab some positive stuff on the summit.
