Comments: No, that's a rat snake. They are great climbers and you may encounter one on route. I have on several occasions.
Lots of copperheads around but they are nonaggressive. Never heard of anyone getting bitten.

Comments: We hiked up through the slabs and out through the gully. I wish i had snips for the vegetated descent and gully trail.
Belayed well below the bolts at the roof making the first pitch about 100' and pitch 2 almost 200'. Should have used double rope technique. Had considerable rope drag even with long slings for the roof and extending every placement.
Linked the beautiful corner and the chimney making another full length pitch. Had a 4 and felt secure through the runout.
Two more easy rope stre... more >>

Comments: Pitch 2 was very dirty. My partner sent down at least half a dozen small rocks.
We had a long walk off. Go left on the hiker trail. At the trail sign/intersection, go left downhill on the faint trail marked with orange ribbon.

Comments: A #6 barely worked but is not necessary as stated above. Going to the top in one pitch is fine if your second is solid.

Comments: Dark clothing makes him hard to spot unless you look at the full size view.

Comments: Don't know what I was thinking trying to OS p1 in wet conditions, in the dark, in approach shoes. Starting up into the flake off the ledge had me spooked. After getting my climbing shoes, #3 and #4 cams from the ground, I was a bit more confident. Long, fun corner after the crux. Williams has it at 5.6PG. The variation, similar to the description on this page, is 5.2G.
