did commitment (led 1 and 3), linked with sellagenela (led 2 and 4)and bishop's terrace (led both pitches). Sometime in Spring 2012 with Amy.
Fantastic view. Even better - no crowds!!
Love that traverse on P3. :D Though, it's also on that belay ledge where my camera pouch was detached and my camera fell almost 400 feet below to... actually at that time I had no idea where it might have landed. It was a hopeless feeling to see your camera go and yet you could do nothing about it. Well, what else could I do? Keep climbing. And that's what we did. Finished the climb. Came back to the base the next morning. Just as I was least expecting, I saw the camera lying on the ground (in the torn pouch that had a hole.) And guess what? I could actually turn it on!! The pictures from the climb were all safe (although there weren't many to begin with) I was simply amazed that this camera somehow survived a nearly 400ft fall... It is a Nikon, in case anyone is curious. :p
The first pitch OW was my first and man was it demanding!
p1 offwidth was demanding... all four pitches are stout.
Nice and fairly sustained grunt. Felt more physically demanding that the "harder" Commitment. 1st and 3rd pitches were my favorite, especially the "5.8 wild" traverse to the 3rd anchor. Can't beat the views. With Pavel and Carol
with Carol and Misha. Approached via Commitment. That 00 TCU on P2 is mine...
followed the first pitch after climbing Munginella and having lunch. thrashed with poor offwidth technique and barely made it up the first pitch without falling. opted to bail climber's left by rapping off the 6-foot tall block, down to a tree covered in bitey red ants (with slings and rap rings). rapped again. my first retreat when i got in over my head!
Followed this route. Very wild and awkward.
did this climb with a Hell Angel. OH! the 70's
