Comments: Great shot! I remember watching my second desperately try to get a quickdraw over his head just moments before he cut loose and swung all the way past the crux.

Comments: Nice double rope threading - I mean it; one doesn't see a lot of this in the US. Even if an extra rope is required for rappel almost all US climbers just clip the extra rope onto their haul loop, or worse; onto the harness gear rack.

So this is good to see.

Comments: North (aka L-Shaped) Couloir on Mount Sill is obvious in this picture. Climb to the top of it to the notch between Sill and Apex Peak (on the right).

Comments: Not very often a broken hold makes a better one but this time it did - there's a big foothold at the crux rounding the corner on the right - makes things a bit easier, but still 5.9.

Comments: When someone says "Central Sierra" I must confess I think of the region of the High Sierra between the Palisades and Kearsarge Pass. Is there another name we can give it? Perhaps I'm wrong.
