Route Climbed: Angels Fright, El Whampo, Left Ski Track Date Climbed: 2000-2002  Sucess!

Such nice granite, and a great place to learn route finding. Ended up taking lots of groups up Angels Fright. So many other routes yet to explore.

Route Climbed: El Whampo Date Climbed: August, 1998  Sucess!

This was my first experience rock climbing. I was hooked. Nice climb with some good exposure for a newbie.

Route Climbed: Angel's Fright Date Climbed: May, 2000  Sucess!

Fun climb, but too many people on this and nearby routes. Lots of waiting... After the climb we went up the first pitch of Fingertrip, which was also nice. We hung our packs in a tree at the base of the climb and came back to them covered in ants. When all was said and done, though, it was a awesome day. Perfect weather and great company.

Route Climbed: 'Coffin Nail' (5.7) and 'Traitor Horn' (5.8) Date Climbed: 31 May 1998  Sucess!

Paired up with Dr. John Ewing to prepare for our first Whitney ascent (East Buttress). Short of the exposure on Traitor Horn, the climbing wasn't all that stout as I had anticipated. On the other hand, the second pitch of 'Coffin Nail' had me thinking about it rating....5.4? Other than 'Amphitheater Chute' (backcountry sandbag!) on Michael Minaret, that's one of the hardest 5.4's I've done (an awkward, slopping ramp that wants to initially spit you off into 300 feet of air!)

Route Climbed: Fingertrip, 5.7 Date Climbed: 6 Jan 2001  Sucess!

Did this route with Deb just before snow dumped on Idyllwild the next day. Glad I was able to share the experience with her. May your romance with climbing be always exhilirating. Let the adventures begin....

Here's to Mile High....

Route Climbed: Finger Trip 5.7 Date Climbed: 6 January 2001

Yahoo! This was my first interaction with real rock and the beginning of a love/hate relationship with Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks. And I owe it all to the constant climbing babblings of Dave Daly.

Thanks for the introduction Dave!
