Comments: Wait, what's PG13 about it if it's well bolted?

Comments: Don't remember off the top of my head. I'll be adding a topo of big baldy to sekiclimbing.com this season but I need to get up there a few more times first so it'll be a few months. Sorry!

Comments: The only issue is that one of the gate above is occasionally closed, but either way it's better to access from above.

Comments: Thanks! And thanks for the new register up there! Ya, no more carrying two ropes out there as long as you have a 70. As far as I know there hasn't been a second ascent but I know of a few people that want to go try to free it.

I still need to get more familiar with the lower approach that you and Rene' have figured out pretty well. But PO scares me...

Comments: The base of North Mountain is over three miles wide from Hotel Creek on the west to Granite Creek on the east and has several large cliffs where it drops into Kings Canyon. When Highway 180 passes over a bridge for the last time to the north side of the Kings River and a dirt road branches off look up to see the walls of the right (east) end of North Mountain. The majority of the climbs are in this area roughly between the horse corrals to the west and Granite Creek to the east.

Comments: "We finished the 8th pitch to the left of the chimney and belayed from a tree that begins a manzanita-filled gully.....Does anyone know of a better route out of there?"

Ya. On the 8th (last) pitch only follow the crack out right for a few meters, then head up/left to a large left facing corner. Follow the corner, past a small tree, as far as you want until you feel like walking. Much more aesthetic, well protected and straightforward way to finish in my opinion.

Great route!

Comments: Super great route, here are a few things FYI

-If the first pitch is clogged with tree routers there's a fun bolted variation just to the left. Walk a bit past tree route and follow a line of bolts (5.7/5.8ish) up to a bolted belay below the finger crack of p2 (you can use this belay either way and then you don't have to bring anything bigger than a #1). For more info click here.

-Bring LOTS of tiny stuff if you're a ... more >>

Comments: Ya it sounds like Welcome To Big Baldy from my description but this climb is on the south east face and WTBB is on the south end of the west face. This climb has a much easier first pitch and was done after the old SEKI guide was published which is why I don't know who did it.
