With some threat of rain/snow, our 2 rope teams got up and down with no issues before the weather dropped. I led P2 and P4; absolutely fun while being puckered a bit on P2. Small nuts and Aliens did the trick. P4 was a blast to run-out and set an anchor over the useless 2-bolt “anchor.” Great day with great dudes from ROWCC.
With my eldest daughter for fathers day...outstanding day capped off with a dip in Mono Lake. I like this route, the 2nd and 4th pitches were outstanding trad leads for the grade.
Great climb, although I was just seconding on this day. Slightly sketchy descent.
Always a fun route. I cleaned the trad part years ago and led the face stuff. I remembered the 5.7 crack dihedral being stiff for the grade but not this time around. I had to come back and lead the whole thing. A good meadow intro route!
Another nice climb on a beautiful day.
What run-out? :)
Amazing rock. My first climb in Tuolumne. How nice!
Though I'm inclined to say that the dihedral was a bit stout for a 5.7
Really fun climb. The 2nd pitch can be a little awkward, but luckily I have long arms. Can't beat the approach. Gotta love those climbs where you can put the rocks shoes on while sitting in the car.
Led by MIguel Forjan, climbed also w/ Paul Garry. Finally got the hang of face stuff on P3.
Had tried to climb this route in July with Marcos but when he met me at first belay station complained he wasn't feeling well (he blamed the potato salad from the Woah Nelly Deli) so we bailed off the Hermaphrodite flake bolts. Went back with Rob and finished the route on a beautiful late fall day.
Climbed with John. I led pitches 2 and 4.
Warm in the sun, some nice views from the top. Tenaya's NW face looked snowy.
Also climbed in August 2006 with Calvin Kilcrease, led pitches 1 and 3.
Warm-up for Fairview the next day... a beautiful route worth repeating.
Loved this route. Did the 5.7 roof variation on 1st pitch, which was super fun. 2nd pitch was great... small nuts work well for protection. 3rd pitch was easy face that was well enough protected. 4th pitch - more lieback... easier than 2nd pitch. P.S. I didn't think the runouts were bad at all. Bolts on 3rd pitch are not that far apart and the climbing is pretty easy. Nothing to worry about.
Climbed twice with UWJennie and Vendelkrakker. Classic Tuolumne, with a good crack, nice spicy face moves, and everything in between. Solo'ed the route the later just before sunset. Hard to find other comparable climbs with such good views.
Climbed with Jeff D. who let me lead the first two pitches and also the last pitch. Fun climb, glad some small of cams with me to protect the 2nd pitch Jeff too the run out face... which he lead with ease.
Lots of run outs...
There is a 5.7 roof move on the 1st pitch, and long 150 feet 3rd pitch with three bolts, I'm glad my partner took those. I took the 2nd and last pitch, they are both fun climb.
Wished we had something larger than a #2 camalot on the last pitch. Kind of airy with nothing but small pro. Had to get creative. Never get your route beta from wild eyed guys in floral shirts at gas stations.
