NE Face - A Classic  Sucess!

Used to climb this frequently in the 80s; loved this route and would still be climbing it if I hadn't moved away. Didn't realize till reading these logs that this was an ice route in the winter!

west variation  Sucess!

Lead even pitches. Joe lead odds. Made it in five pitches starting from the ledge with the pine tree with a 70m rope. Crux was the overhangs on pitch 4. Nice stought trees for anchors the entire way.

The best ice yet!  Sucess!

Penelope May and I climbed the NE face on March 12, 2010. The face was incredibly well iced up, in fact we found the best ice in about 12-13 years. Even the headwall was iced up and we wanted to go straight up it. But I only had four short screws, so I did a bit of zig-zagging so I could use two rock pieces for pro. Wonderful ice climb, hope the face ices up again so we can do it again.

Many times  Sucess!

This is another route on Tahquitz I climbed so many times I cannot even count them. It is the most excellent route for the new multi-pitch trad leader to practice on. My notes indicates that I climbed it the first time with Bill Rubin in 1979 and since that time, every year while teaching new rope leaders the tricks of multi-pitch climbing. In January 1989, over two weekends, Miguel Carmona and I climbed the route, all three Larks routes and the Trough on ice. The ice climbing on this route can be absolutely out of this world.
