Great first alpine rock climb with fun and relaxed climbing. Wonderful views of YNP during the climb and from the summit.
Why haven't more people signed this log? They don't get better than this.
I topped out in time just as a cloud moved overhead. My neck felt like it was getting pinched as I removed my slings to prep the belay. Then I heard the pattering of raindrops, but when I looked for rain, there was none. It wasn't the pattering of rain, but the sound of electricity between the two pinnacles! I belayed quickly and as the second topped out my finger tips were trailing a greenish glow. I kept moving my hands around, not sure of what I was seeing, but then it was apparent I wasn't on drugs. We were about to be crispy climbers! I told her to remove all hardware and get below on a ledge. I then removed my stuff and actually untied from the rope and used the short end (mistake)to tarzan down to her, but the rope was too short. I had to let go and free fall, hoping to hit the ledge and not the ground hundreds of feet below. I landed safely and we waited out the cell. I then had to free climb up to the top to lower the rope to her. we then got the hell off as the next cell approached.
First climb in YNP with my true love. Got me hooked....on both. :)
Climbed it twice, quick fun route
I did this climb with my friends John and Mickey and had a great time. The climbing is easy but very enjoyable. The views from the summit where awesome.
3.5 hr car to summit. Very fun route!
