Comments: That would be Carlos from Columbia. We met up that day and I suggested he get on this route. He casually onsighted both pitches linked together.

Comments: Agree about the 3rd clip. I remember being kinda sketched out moving above it because the climbing is sorta tricky there.

Comments: If people are going to add an entire area to the database, I wish they would offer up more info. Seems like some just jump at the chance to add an area so they score MP points.

Comments: Nice one Wayne and Brad! I remember seeing something out right with chalk on it when I was working Crazy Fingers. I'll have to go up and check it out.

Comments: Really interesting pitch. Climbs much better than you'd think. It could use a lot of cleaning up and will probably improve as it sees more traffic.

Comments: Agreed, that photo doesn't do justice to how steep it really is in there. Excellent line!

Comments: Yeah, no pin at the crux but really not needed. Small cams will do nicely. Get on this and feel the gravity tugging at you!

Comments: Phil, It's sounds like you are refering to the The Monument. It's under the "Whales Tail" section.

Comments: Ok, I'll bite.. Without dropping a name. He was responsible for freeing the main roof on the Wisdom in '75, also made early attempts of the Psycho roof. Wunsch later freed it.

Also freed all but a few feet at the top of the NW face of Half Dome.

Comments: Yes, Eldo history is the best! It's great to see you posting on here, Bob H. Ignore the disrepectful comments. Some just don't have a clue.

Comments: I just think the moves are not too bad for a 12 in Eldo. As far as gear...well it is Eldo. It ain't no weenie roast up there. Safer than a lot of routes though I've been on.

Comments: After looking thru the guide again I realized that the route I have been looking at is called "Wild Side" immediately right of the second pitch of Sidewall. I was confusing this with Quiet Desperation, since the topo for that area is really vague in the guide.

Comments: Thanks Chris, I was up there again this morning scoping it out, and I can see a way to gain the corner just to the right of Sidewall. It looks really sketchy with poor rock though. I would most likely hang a rope from above to TR it before leading it. I would hate to have a hold rip off trying to onsight it. It also looks really dirty up there, no one has probably been on it in quite a while.

Comments: Bob, is this the hanging corner just above Sidewall, right before its crux or does Quiet Desperation have an independent start to the right of Sidewall? I guess what I'm trying to ask is do you have to climb the first 20 ft or so of Sidewall to gain Quiet?

Thanks!
