Climbed the left-hand finish, then came back around for Hermaphrodite and Boltway. Fun day!
Gotta LOVE pitch 5 or 4 (depending if or how you link the pitches, anyways it's the one with no pros) - I love running up those low angle slabs!! What run-out?! ;)
Did 5.9 direct start. Pitch 2&3 linked with 60m rope. Perfect day!
Followed first three in July 2009, led runout 5.6-5.7 fourth pitch. Met a bunch of folks from supertopo :)
Horrid run out from the crack's end straight up, i wouldn't recommend it to anybody. Missed the smear traverse to the arch and was bitching the whole time. Other than that, a fantastic finger crack!
After the 5.8 finger crack, I don't think that route is as classic as reported, but still fun and well worth doing. I'm surprised by all the fledging 5.8 climbers who do the runout 5.7 and 5.6 pitches higher up. I found them reasonable, but only because I had been climbing some harder stuff the day before.
Climbed with the Vendelkrakker... a beautiful route and definitely worth its 5 stars. The run-out pitches higher up are really not all that bad.
A Meadow's classic. A must if your are up there.
Perfect granite and gorgeous views of Tenaya Lake and Peak.
Done in the mid 1990's. I don't recall the date but will never forget the wonderful day.

A beautiful route.
My first climb in Tuolumne on an awesomely beautiful summer day. I was overwhelmed with the place. I posted a couple of pictures but the color is all wrong for some reason. Truly one of my all-time favorite climbs in one of my all-time favorite places.
