September 2003 - Looking down...

September 2003 - Looking down the class 3 Rock Route on Clyde Minaret, surely one of the wildest class 3 routes (sans the class 4 'step') in the Sierras! I'm in the foreground.

Re: cool exposure!

It definitely was a blast climbing on that route, although the rockfall, while not very prevalent, was very dangerous. Keep an eye on the members in your group when climbing this route!

Kick ass shot

This is a kick ass shot, Wombat. Is the rock on the Clyde as crappy as it looks from below.

Re: Kick ass shot

In a way, yes. The rock matrix itself seemed really secure, and there wasn't much loose scree to slip on, but there was always the occasional microwave-sized boulder that could be unlodged with a flick of your heel!
