Comments: Just did this classic route ! The 5.7 dike traverse move at the top of pitch 1 (or 2 in the Bourdon book) is pretty slick after all of the traffic. I would suggest heading straight up the dihedral to the tree with slings all over it and building a belay there, then pitch it out from the flake to the bolts (you can get a few pieces into the dike traverse). Won't completely help with the slab fall if you blow it, but it does help reduce rope drag/stretch and the belayer can see/hear you as you ma... more >>

Comments: Dick, i'm so sorry to hear about this tragic accident. I've updated the route description to try to highlight the dangers as well. Most people aren't aware that it's not just you that climbs the route, but all of your porters do as well and they're often ill-equipped. Thanks for posting--my thoughts go out to the family of the climber.

Comments: IF YOU'RE RAPPING OFF A TREE WITH TAT AND RAPPEL RINGS AROUND IT YOU'RE IN THE WRONG PLACE. GO BACK UP AND KEEP HEADING LEFT TO THE GULLY. We took the catwalk on the descent and wound up following the trail down through the manzinita bushes to a tree with some webbing and rap rings on it and made the mistake of using it to get down to the gully. It was one of the scariest rappels I've ever done, and here's why:

First, if you have a 60m rope, you're hosed. With a 70m we barely made it to some of... more >>

Comments: DESCENT: got lost on this on the descent once, never again. After you top out, you shimmy down down a short 4th class section of rock to a flat, dirt platform. From here, don't keep going downhill towards the north-northeast (like the guidebook implies). Instead, veer left (west) and uphill on a dirt trail until you see some cairns (should be pretty immediate). This will take you up north-northwest to a notch then down through some ledges and back down towards the west Redgarden trail. The trail... more >>
