View from below start of Gridle.  Just after the walk down flattens out.  Doesn't look like much, does it.  But the opening moves are really quite good.

Comments: The left hand exit, which as I recall has a pin (or two?) up there somewhere, is probably not for most folks. My partner reminds me it had some serious run out on it. I think things were moist the day we first did that exit so it had the normal Sandia wet lichen, etc... to really spice things up. Love the summer rains but when the Sandias sock in for a few days, watch the slipperies and beware the loose stuff that normally is not loose.

Have always done the RH exit since. Up the flare for ... more >>

Freaking Awesome.

Speculation on who placed it?
Mendenhall & Robbins? in ~53?

Comments: Amazing how long that dead tree has been hanging out there!
I always thought it was quite aesthetic.
Hope it stays another 40 years.

Comments: Rule #1, never trust a Falcon guide. Never trust any guide that purports to cover an entire state in one book. No offense to Stewart and others but you can't get details about obscure routes correct in a guide like that. Hard enough to get major routes placed correctly. Odd to even have a route like this in a Falcon guide.
My recollection is that if you skip the tree, you'll think it's at least 5.9 :-)
Glad to see a repeat write up. Guess the advantage to a Falcon guide is that it c... more >>

Comments: Probably more traffic than 3 ascents in 30+ years. Maybe there have been more, it is the overlook after all.

Comments: As I recall, I put the PG13 on there for doing certain of the starts that don't protect all that well for a ways, e.g. the arete towards Cloudwalk. The rest of the climb is good crack. And as I recall, either of the two crack exits protect fine.
I've also done that st8 up into P2 but personally prefer the other exits just for different style. More of a balancy climbing. Hence the name... Wander where your lust takes you.

Comments: Tyler:
I've drawn the 3 routes as I recall putting them up.
How Marty got the names, location, etc.. I don't know. I suspect from Toula's guide, Cheap Way, which had a number of climbs out of sequence on it. After the Alpineer folded, there was really nothing to keep track of FAs in the area.
I'll have to look at Tim's guide and see what he has there.

I'm also going off probably 30 years of memory :-)

I do know I have P1 and P2 correctly defined. I'm a bit hazier on Hard Rain. In fact, I'... more >>
