NE Rib ice climbed  Sucess!

Penelope and I climbed the NE Rib route on the extreme left side of the North Face on January 31, 2017. There was a thin layer of snow and ice on the lower Rib. We belayed mostly off of trees. The 5th pitch below the rock tower turned out to be rock climbing over steep granite slab and proved to be the crux in boots with little (if any) pro. Wonderful route in winter, great low 5th class scramble in summer.

The Trough   Sucess!

1st climb at Tahquitz with Marty & Brian.
Went on to climb nearly all the classics (and most non-classics) within my ability (5.10+) through the late 80's.
A few of my favorites I did many times, including The Open Book, El Camino Real, Human Fright, Coffin Nail, El Wampo, and The Consolation.

Lots of great routes here. Whodunit, a 5.9 which is continuously interesting from start to finish, has been my favorite.

Best Link up yet  Sucess!

Dave's Deviation to Piton Pooper to Upper Royal's Arches, which is an amazing link up! Great day with Deb and Cannon. Rope management was a drag, but lotsa time to goof off at the belays. ;) Can't wait to do Upper Royal's Arches again!

amazing history  Sucess!

possibly the most famous summit crag from the glory days of rock climbing. add it to the valley, eldo, the gunks, and you've seen the majority of the history. quite a few excellent moderates on this tremendous little fin of rock, from open book to finger trip to el camino real. btw the local, and more correct, way to pronounce the name is tak-witz, after the indian...

Up The North-East Rib to get married  Sucess!

In the morning of June 11, 2011,Penelope May (now May-Smrz) and I (Alois Smrz) scrambled up the North-East Rib (5.2 or 5.3) of Tahquitz Rock for about the zillioneth time to attend a wedding on top, our own. We met on top of Tahquitz Rock in 1999, have lived in Idyllwild some 10 years now, so the summit was a natural place to get married. 49 fellow climbers, hikers and neighbors joined us on top. Wonderful day, loving friends, unforgetable...
