Comments: Calling anything "A0", even a bolt ladder, on the res. is a joke/sham.

Comments: I had 3 #3 cams that fit and leapfrogged for miles. It was a slow moving quasi belay stance.

Comments: When I did the route , in April 1979 (checking the record book)with, it says Eric, Dean and Roy, who I take to be EE, Bullwinkle and Roy McClenahan (and not Roy Naasz)we called it 10D. So I believe that Randy's rating of 11a isn't that far off. I remember thinking, when I heard "The" hold was gone, "Man, it must be quite a bit harder."

So John's comment makes sense. "The first pitch was never 11a."

Comments: Good shot! When it first popped up I thought "that's Dave" and was stoked to find I was correct.

A great route. I believe this was before "THE" hold broke Off making it significantly harder. I am glad I was there before....

Comments: Wow, I just stumbled on this gem of a photo. Mtn. Project surprises again.
I climbed a bunch with Ken back in the '70s. He was a great guy , super solid and calm when the chips were down. We climbed the Higher Cathedral Spire in winter and made what was my first El Cap attempt in winter. We were lucky to survive the ice chunk (tv to refrigerator sized pieces) bombardment.
I was just a kid but he, at 11 yrs. older, was a man. I looked up to him and would have followed him anywhere. He died way ... more >>

Comments: I did the FA of this route in the mid 1980's. Were the bolts that I placed not there in 2003?

Comments: Randy Vogel is without a doubt the reigning expert on Joshua Tree rock climbing. I've got a whole bookshelf devoted to his works. This book, however, stands out as the most beautiful guide yet done to any area by any author. It is not just a guide but a work evoking the feelings and experiences of a generation of climbers as they trekked around Joshua Tree exploring and climbing or just soaking up the vibe of this magical place. Finally, a book that does justice to this sublime desert paradise.... more >>

Comments: Todd Gordon and I did what I believe was possibly the second ascent in April 1985. I remember the first two pitches as tricky. We continued to the top of Black Velvet Peak for 15 pitches, many of them after dark. We got down to the car around midnight to find our friend Holly asleep and dinner very cold. She was more annoyed than worried.
It was a long day.
