Photo Caption Location Date
GB at the first bolt of Armed Forces, at the best start for Army (after doing the fifth-class approach).  Climb straight up overhanging huecos and jugs for about ten feet, and traverse right, passing AF's second bolt. Army's obvious right-slanting handcrack is visible near the right edge of the photo.    <br /> <br />To my left is the small juniper, where Ariel begins (after the doing the fifth-class approach).  You could also begin Army there, moving up about ten feet, placing a small cam , then making a longer traverse to the right, to reach the second bolt on AF. The photo's perspective makes left appear more up than left, and right appear more down than right.

Overhanging Face (5.12?) is on the left face of the leftmost fin.  Overhanging Left-Leaning Arete (11a) lies on the front of the leftmost fin.  Ear Rings (10a) climbs the left edge of the east face of the middle fin, which has ears on top.  Edgy (9+/10a) edges past four bolts on the slab just east (right) of the middle fin.  Easy Crack (5.5) lies on the right side of the slab.  The Phallus (rightmost fin) isn't visible in the photo, and lies about 70 feet farther southeast (right) and lower.

This pic was taken on Aug. 26, 2013, from near the base of the single bolted route at the bottom of the west side of the outcrop, looking down toward South Boulder Creek and the railroad tracks.  From this viewpoint, that single bolted route lay to photographer's right.  The tree next to Jeana was our anchor for belaying my lead.

George Bracksieck leading into the first crux of "Quiche on a Leash," in March, 1978.  Notice the absence of a chalk bag.  No-trace climbing meant no chalk, despite my oily skin.

Just got a slide scanner and unearthed old slides.  Mike Endicott belays Steve Sarns, not Kevin Smyth, who's leading p.1 in Sept. 1982.  Good pro.  No bolts.  No choss.

This photo shows the right-angling, wide-ish crack.  Above, I am clipping a new bolt that seems left of Resolution.  Above it, the third new bolt on Resolution may be visible.  I clipped it, too.  Down and to the right of me is a short, left-angling, wide-ish crack.  Just to its right is Resolution's second bolt, which protects a long reach to a hidden bucket up and right.  Photo by Leo Paik.

Reach for the Sky climbs the nice crack in the left of the photo, then underclings right along the obvious flake that begins horizontal and eventually curves up to the overhang. At its right end, crank left and up to a horizontal, then attempt to beach your whale up over the overhang below and to the left of the small pine visible on the skyline. Stonefish climbs the up an "elephant's trunk" by a wrinkle visible at lower center, then up slab to the righthand (biggest) part of the overhang and over it (below and right of the small pine visible on the skyline). <br />

Rock Lobster climbs the indistinct dihedral/gully on the left for 15 feet, then moves right to a bolt by a seam that is followed up and right to a blonde undercling in the upper part of photo. (I'm not talking about the long undercling that goes right and up, across the middle of the photo.) From the right end of the high, short undercling, climb up through a lichen-infested break to the rim. Build an anchor. Walk off.
