Comments: At the large parking lot a couple hundred yards just past the climb, (where people park for the Amasa Back trail), on the downhill side of the road you will find a small hiking only sign. This is the walk up/off trail. About 40 minutes up and 30 minutes down. There is one spot on the way down where you have to be a careful (traverse above a bad run out) but other than that it is pretty casual.

Comments: Looks like the attempt today was about 3 minutes slower than the other day due to a water on a pitch.

Comments: Matthew S. beta is pretty much right on, however never found the need for either of the critical alien placements he mentioned as we used tricams instead. Large brass offsets and small alloy offsets are your best friends. We had 3 of each. A number 2 Camp ballnut under the roof makes turning the roof straight forward. From there you can place a good yellow alien around the corner. Eaiser to re-aid the traverse rather than jug it. I'd call it C2 but a route with experienced required as the cleani... more >>

Comments: We climbed this earlier this week in perfect temps. It is a classic route and other than the first pitch safe to lead. Luke's beta is excellent. Placed only a few cams on the entire route, green/blue and green/yellow offsets and a couple of red master cams. Tricams worked perfectly in the pockets including some of the larger sizes. We had 3 or 4 size 6 and 7 DMM brass/alloy offsets and we used them on every pitch. The pro was better than expected and the route wasn't nearly as difficult as I tho... more >>

Comments: Thanks for posting up.

I have a friend coming out from NZ during that period and we were hoping to climb something on Angel's Landing but I guess now I'll have to look elsewhere.

Still wished the Park Service hadn't selected this prime climbing period to work on Angel's landing but I guess they didn't have many options.

Comments: John,

I don't post information about accidents as they are often posted up first in the forums before I hear about them. I work full time and don't have the time during business hours to be logged onto the site updating it all the time.

If you have any news items please email me and I'll get them up on the site. There is a lot more to maintaing the site that just adding news items.
