Location: CA : Yosemite National Park : Yosemite Valley : Yosemite Falls Area : Sunnyside Bench : Tiny Tim (5.7 R)

Comments: Pitch 1) After passing the second bolt you can clip one of anchor bolts from the route directly to the right of Tiny Tim (Mothballed) with a long runner. Before reaching the chains there is a bomber horizontal finger crack to place a cam into.
Pitch 2) Climbing in a straight line between the belay and the first bolt will yield a couple of small stopper placements in two of the vertical seams.

Since the end is seldom told…
Pitch 3) I do not agree with the Reid guide for the remainder of the r... more >>


Location: CA : Yosemite National Park : Lower Merced River Canyon : 14 - Cascade Area : Pat and Jack Pinnacle : Makayla's Climb (5.8+)

Comments: Pitch 1 bolts were added in 2001 by Dan, Jerry, and Sigrid. The climb can easily be identified by a very large round incut feature about head high. Clip four bolts before reaching a two bolt anchor with rap rings. The crux is at the fourth bolt where the pitch steepens, and the knobs get smaller and greasy. The anchor cannot be seen from the beginning of the climb. This is a great location for families with young budding climbers.

Comments: There are loose rocks on the sandy belay ledge at the top of pitch one. On the ground, it is best to belay out on the open slope rather than at the base of the corner.

Comments: Sorry about the false advertisement. When I topped out, I was sweaty and covered in sand. But that was only do to one short section leaving the squeeze. At the time, the only other person I knew who had climbed this said he liked the climb but got a mouth full of dirt placing a hand jam above his head. It is a good pitch though and a majority of it reminds me of Trial by Fire.

Comments: I've always had a difficult time moving left and pulling the crux buldge on this one. And it has lead me to believe that it is harder than 5.10. While I have never actually had a running top-rope or tackled this one on lead, the half a dozen times I've ran a mini-traxion have made me a firm believer in the quality of the rock and the beauty of the movements Pink Panter has to offer. Check it out.


Location: AZ : Northern Arizona : Grand Canyon National Park : Bright Angel Walls : Lower Flailing Wall : A Yucca Minute (5.11-)
By: Osprey Overhang When: Jul 14, 2013

Comments: This is my favorite climb on the Lower Flailing Wall. Start directly above a yucca plant. If you fall at any point before clipping the second bolt, contact with the yucca is possible. The crack has good rests, takes good pro, is steep and solid 5.10. The most difficult section of the crack is where it is thinnest, about a body length section half way up. Hand jams are the norm up high. Exit the crack to the left and pull a bulge on good holds before clipping the bolted anchor.

Comments: This is the climb that starts out as a water streak and turns into an off width/chimney. Crimp and stem past two bolts off the ground. Pull the crux and enter the crack where the difficulty eases up. The top half of the climb is protected with gear 3"- 6"+. Fists turn to wings and stems as you ascend the ever widening crack at a moderate grade. Either top out and set up an anchor on a tree, or traverse to the right and use the Service Tension anchor (recommended). A clean line.

Comments: One of the nicer mellow 5.10s at the BA Walls. This is the first bolted line to the right of the wide line that divides the Lower Flailing Wall in half. While getting off the ground may feel cruxy, the main difficulty is encountered on the top half of the climb. In this section, stemming over to Too Big For Your Bridges lowers the difficulty to 5.8 while not stemming maintains a 5.10- grade.

Comments: Good rock quality for the area on this one pitch route. A top rope can easily be placed from approaching the anchors above via the rim trail.

This climb follows a small right facing feature that peters out two thirds of the way up. Begin by clipping a bolt and climbing the left side of the feature. Climb up and switch to the right side of the feature. Aim for a block that looks loose from the bottom but is actually way solid. The climbing is very pumpy to this point but eases off above the... more >>

Comments: Water in gallon jugs are still for sale in the park. If you need bottled water in smaller containers, try the stores in the border communities. There are now water refilling stations throughout the park and even a filtered refilling station inside the General Store. Arizona state law requires every business to have free water available to anyone who asks for it.

Comments: Glad to hear about the bolt removal. I'll admit that I clipped it on my on-sight, even though I had my black alien racked as the first piece up front on the gear sling. As it turned out, it was one of the few pieces still on the sling when I reached the chains.

Comments: The Thrill Is Gone was always one of my favorite climbs in the Olmstead area. This was mainly because there would never be anyone on it, and also because the OW is high quality. I liked how the OW eases up in difficulty after turning the overhang, and is followed by difficult committing exit moves on the face above. It is also easy to set up a TR here.

Comments: Being able to climb this type of crack is a requirement for passage up many climbs in Yosemite. And here it is at ground level next to a parking lot, picnic table, and pooper! This climb was established by a young, up and coming Bird, during a time when the 5.8 rating meant it was just a tad easier than the hardest thing around.
