Comments: One of the best routes I did in three weeks at Tuolumne. Two very different pitches, both with their own memorable challenges. Incredible.

Comments: Not sure where the anchors are. Our route had an extra bolt or two than indicated on the Falcon topo and a long run out to a ledge with no anchors.

Comments: Third pitch is very worthwhile. Hiding in the lichen are some exciting moves with small tricky pro, then an unlikely top out.

Comments: Description (and comments) are missing the crux second pitch. I've never found a reasonable passage, but the Grey Dick makes it sounds pretty heady: climb the bulging face and roof just left of Strictly's.

Comments: This climb is so much better than it looks from the ground, and climbs so differently than you'd expect.

Comments: That white "bulge" at the top of p.2 is not to be missed - ridiculous 5.5 climbing. No need to downclimb to the tree out right, simple walk left to a station set up for a single 60m rope rap to the Hyjeck's tree.

Comments: Climbed this the way it's written up on this page and it felt 9ish. The Grey Dick description and picture seems to have the climb blasting through the series of hanging corners and not going "straight left" (which seems the obvious way to go once you're up there). The way it climbs is more of a Moonlight variation, the Grey Dick write up has it taking a wholly independent line through the lichen between Moonlight and Erect Direction.

Comments: Among the best of shots of an oft-photographed climb. Wish the climber was 2 body lengths higher and fully in that nicer lighting...

Comments: Weird action pic, the rope is so bright it looks like it was drawn in with some bogus 1997 software.

Comments: I stepped on that things today (moved left too high) and they rattled like crazy - f'ing scary because people were directly below on a 2x rope rap. Yikes!

Comments: A great climb, it's too bad it took me so long to do this - each pitch is like a totally different climb: pitch 1 is a well protected footwork problem while pitch 2 (5.5) demands an expert eye for route finding through steep broken orange rock and adroit placements behind whatever rock vibrates the least.
