Great White Book  Sucess!

I led and climbed with bodyjams almost all the way. My second stemmed practially the whole route. Interesting. With 40 foot runouts if your body is the piece of pro, that's what it is!

Many routes over the years  Sucess!

South Crack, Great White Book, the .10d to the left of the Book (can't remember the nbame right now). Nice dome in a great area.

A gorgeous unique climb  Sucess!

South Crack was my first route in Tuolumne. It was fabulous and unforgettable - followed by a whole bunch of other fabulous and unforgettable routes there !

Ascent of Hermaphrodite Flake to the Boltway  Sucess!

Climbed this route during a "tour of the classics" day that included Hermaphrodite Flake to the Boltway (South Crack had a line), West Crack, and Fairview Dome's Regular Route. Fun route. We climbed H. Flake as one pitch, then finished up the Boltway.

Fun climb with Dirk (Diggler), finishing just before an afternoon shower. Heavenly view of Tenaya Lake from the top, but we had to get down in a hurry.

Thoroughly enjoyed this, being one of my first climbs in California (and the US) - nice scenery from this one. The runout friction pitch was also something new and "interesting".

Some off-width runout, but still fun climbing.

Route Climbed: West Country Date Climbed: June 1999  Sucess!

One of the first routes I did in Tuolumne. Done with Thomas and David. Thomas did an outstanding job leading one of his first pitches ever-the smooth and thin dihedral pitch.

Route Climbed: All that I know of... Date Climbed: Sept. 16, 2005  Sucess!

My first time on the dome and Kristina's first ever outside climb. We did Herms' Flake to Boltway, the later seeming much easier than 5.8. West Country was pure, simple fun. Great White Book was a lot of work but not technically hard. I placed a number 4 BD--but only because I dragged the damn thing up the route. I'd leave the big gear at home because you'd have to go out of your way to fall on this one. By far the least interesting route of the four we tried. South Crack (5.9 variation but seemed easier) was fun for the first couple of pitches but then turned into a dome slog for the last couple of pitches. Still, a great 5.9 for someone just breaking into the grade.

Route Climbed: GWB, South Crack, West Country Date Climbed: Sept. 12 2005 and various  Sucess!

The crux is driving by on the 120 and NOT climbing these fine routes.

Climbed this great route with Steve Larson while having a fever and some of the nasties colds ever. Climbers on the nearby routes were amused to watch me sneeze and cough at every belay station. Despite my cold, surprisingly I made it up the route without any difficulties. The crux is a bit slippery but fun!!
