Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Whitney/Lone Pine Area : Alabama Hills : Unknown Pillar

Comments: Found this pillar completely by accident (from the west) and found it surprisingly satisfying. Did all the routes aside from the Route A which looked absolutely chossy even for this choss queen. Route B is a Alobama Hills classic. Loved it. The pregnant wife even climbed it twice. But it should be noted that the moves getting to first or second bolts are way beyond the easy ratings as described here.

Comments: Isn't this to the left of Digi, not between Racing Lizards? Will be a fun climb when cleaned up.

Comments: Did them yesterday, well two of them (far left and far right) before we ran out of daylight. More like mountaineering routes (respectfully) thann the usual sporty ORG experience. They were good, though. Reckon they come in at 5.6 or so.

Comments: Tai Devore (AKA Mr. Pine Creek) is putting in so many new routes it's hard to keep track. But go into Wilson's and he'll hand you some topos for some really fine routes.

Comments: Got a left knee stuck in the off-width exit move on P-2. Never thought it would come out and had visions of that dude in Utah who cut off his arm. At first I thought it was a cool, no hands rest, only to discover the knee had cammed in there pretty good. Took about half hour to free and now my knee is the size of a small, seedless watermelon. Great route, though.

Comments: Nice. At quick, first glance almost thought it was the same o samo Ritter/Banner setup. But this is unique and wonderful at the same time.

Comments: Of historical note: John Fischer climbed this shortly after being bit by a rattlesnake on the approach. Didn't want to disappoint his clients enrolled in a beginner mountaineering course in the PSOM. But was forced to go to the hospital later that evening.

Comments: Nice work guys on a great route. You can rap with one 60m from P-5 to base with ease (especially now since the rope snagger on P-2 is gone thanks to Tai). Always glad to hear Greg is still with us.

Comments: Hello John, Belated reply for sure, but to be honest don't know if he's off-route. Likely just plugging eyebrows any which way he can. Caroline says hi!

Cheers,

Bruce
