Couple of times with various partners
I've always wondered where the name came from... it's a great route and one that I'd do again. I climbed this with a couple "old-timers" from the San Diego Sierra Club RCS in 1986; as I write this almost thirty years later it's funny how now I am the old-timer.
did that a couple of times...
The 5.5 crux chimney above the J-tree was harder than many other higher rated climbs that I've done at Tahquitz. For instance, it was harder than the 5.8 corner option on the first pitch of Fingertrip, or any part of the 5.6 Angel's Fright. However, someone with superior chimney skills may feel differently, and it does protect well. We did this route in 7 pitches while stretching out the 60m rope on at least 3 of the pitches, so it makes for a fairly long day.
Penelope and I first climbed Uneventful in early January 2001 while Pen was taking her first rock climbing class. We almost bivied on the descent not having headlamps (headlamps on Tahquitz?, you must be kidding, yeh, that's what I said)and since that time climbed it several times as a part of Pen's Tahquitz experience. On November 24, 2008, we again got tested on this by wind and temps in the low 30s. Pen led most of it this time and we weren't even close to any epics (except being totally frozen). Good route for the rating.
Our two partys separated at the J-Tree where Uneventful and North Buttress meet. Deb and I made a long traverse left and up to meet Dave and Aaron at the top. Led pitches 1 and 3.
Climbed the last two pitches after doing the lower part of the North Buttress. Great pitch above the J-Tree.
