We ran up here and then back up and did Eagle Buttress right. Fun two pitches, not near what I was expecting...not near as good as several other routes I have done already on my first trip to the Leap, Vanishing Point or Surrealistic Pillar Direct. Good starter lead for those breaking into the grade, can place tons of gear. No one even near us on a Tuesday morning.
Super steep, but fun.
linked with Psychedelic Tree, Scimitar, East Crack(or wall? the 5.8 one), and pop bottle
With Greg. I found the first pitch quite strenuous but had a great time.
Climbed with JB.
No line for The Line? Word!
Enjoyable moves on fairly steep rock, an outstanding warmup for the 5.8 on Travelers. If you enjoy roofs and the climbs at the Leap that have that distinct 'Leap' flavor to 'em, this is more of the same, but definitely a fun route.
Spectacular climbing and easy to manage cruxes. Led all three pitches with WML. A good warm up for Traveler Buttress.
Good times with Dave Shuman.
did it in the afternoon, after Travelers Buttress. No crowds at all. Very enjoyable, balancy at times. With Kris.
I and a buddy did this right out of the car after an 8 hr. drive from LA. Such a sweet, aesthetic line.
I used every runner I had. Great climb.
Climbed this route a few times over the years. That first pitch sucked up gear like a vacuum. Banged my head leading the final pitch once, not paying attention as I moved up on a foothold (and of course didn't wear a helmet back then.) Went to watch the Olympics and drink at the Strawberry Inn later.
I started this with Damien during my first season climbing in 2005. It would have been my first 5.9 lead but I sketched on the first committing move off the deck and bailed. A year later we came back and hiked the whole thing. A fine climb.
Enjoyed it a lot. Jumped on it early and still weren't first, but luckily we were behind a fast party.
done this one a handful of times, and never waited. it would be worth some wait though
