Finally  Sucess!

Climbed it with "the" SP Josh on a cool and windy November day. With a 70-meter rope and a leader who essentially free-soloed, we did the climb in a fast 4 pitches. I was quite happy to play follower. Got a rope stuck on the first rappel (got greedy), which spiced things up.

East Face direct  Sucess!

Fun route...did the longer left side variation and the second pitch had a fun little overhang to climb through! Beautiful and warm sunny day in November.

East Face Standard  Sucess!

I quit counting ascents after two dozen. Yvon may have been right," the finest beginners climb in the country."

Standard East Face  Sucess!

Standard East Face with Jamie, lots of fun, I can see why this route is so popular. Not too crowded today, everyone was nicely spaced and friendly.

Routes? What routes?  Sucess!

Really, really enjoyed climbing the east face of this feature. There were so many people on this monster outcrop. We didn't follow any line in particular, just climbed pleasant rock on an insanely beautiful, sunny day. Despite the crowding, everyone was so friendly on this peak except for one grumpy old man at the busy rap stations.

E. Face & S. Chimney  Sucess!

A beautiful crisp fall day. The South Chimney seemed a little harder than its 5.4 rating, but we may have been off route.
