Re: Oh my gosh!

It's just north of Bishop. Ten minute approach.
I'll be posting a page on it tonight. If you get a chance check it out.

Re: Granite?

Yes, it's granite. The orange tint is due to the early morning sun. Yosemite Valley, all granite of course, is loaded with clean geometric cracks.

God that looks so sweet. I haven't climbed any real rock in months and I'm salivating looking at this!!!!! 10 minute approach?! Are you serious? I'll get there when I come back to the US next year. Have fun!!

Re: and...

Hi Christine, Most of the routes on this formation are pretty difficult, or just scary as in "Pratt's Crack" 5.9. This is a wide, very wide, crack that spits you right off, unless you are Chuck Pratt himself.
The reason it looks this color is that I took this shot early in the morning. But, trust me, it's granite.

Re: and...

Oh, I totally believe that it's granite. :) Although I would pee my pants, it still sounds like fun and I miss climbing outdoors! Have fun on your many adventures. :)
