Climbed it in a day with Hamik, after hearing so much about it. Led P 4 5 6 7, part of 10th linked with 11. 17 hours car to car. Our 2nd real wall. Thought it was easier than Lost Arrow Spire Direct.
I climbed this over a three day weekend from LA with Bob Cox in May 1980. Leave LA late day 1, arrive early a.m. day 2, and pretty much start climbing right there, top out day three and drive home. Whew! Good thing we were young. I was a sophomore in college at the time and had to read Sinclair Lewis' Babbit for a report, so I tied a piece of elastic around the spine and read at belays. Multitasking gone mad.
With Bill Crouse
With Nick Tomlin. Great climb with good exposure. Only drawback was lots of fixed junk.
Excellent route, low commitment, loads of dead heads when I did it. Highly recommended.
nice climb, but I hated the descent...with all that weight!
This was my first wall in the Valley on my first climbing trip there AND the first time sleeping on a portaledge-my partner gave me the outside too!
Climbed this great route for the 2nd time, ending a 20 year break from Big Wall climbing!! Excellent fun. Lots of manky fixed crap though! A great vacation!!
