Comments: That blue thing a sad home-made camera bag. Earband thing keeps the hat on in wind... collar up for sun protection.... black socks for stickyness.... Shoes off because I'm soft and my feet were killing me.... numerous rope loops because chicken heads were below.

Comments: I went and looked at this OW today... it is about 5.11T (for tennies) to get to the base. Looks sorta loose and grainy with a big temporary block at the lip. Not something I would be going back to drop a rope on. The downclimb is 5.12T. I was glad to get back to the desert floor alive.

Comments: So there is sorta 3 routes on that face... the dike, a thin to hands grainy crack, and then a hands to fist grainy crack. Which one is Master and Servant? I'm thinking it is the middle of the three routes. What say you??

Comments: I did the left hand corner (early 80's) OW thingy for the last pitch. It was sorta hard, dirty and I recall a big wiggly vertical flake inside the crack that you could pinch instead of jamming. All in all not that pleasant and right at the top seemed like the crux scooping leaves and dirt off the summit trying to top out. Fuzzy memory says you move right at the very top and at some point I was stemming and groveling trying to get the last few feet.

After getting back down to Camp 4 I went an... more >>

Comments: This is a quasi dangerous and not that much fun route. It is runout, and the fall in a couple of places would be bad, including open fractures. Going right at the top seems like a bail job and climbing the arete on the left to top out is tenuous and very run out if done that way.

If you really want this on your tick list, TR it after doing the much better bolted route to the right, The Bees Knees.

Comments: If it hasn't cleaned up since 1966, I doubt it will ever be clean enough. Maybe in another 50 years things might be better.

Comments: This pic just came up on my "feed" and once again I'll say it reeks of irresponsibility and total disregard for safety. Not only is he old and prone to strokes or colitis or something, but he is skipping bolts too!!!! Nothing like a low-T macho man to endanger the inevitable rescuers with his antics.

Comments: That schedule is all fine and good, but there is a BIG difference between resting and climbing. When the thing you are training for kicks your ass more than the workouts, I'm speculating that should not be classified as your rest day.

Comments: Colin: Have you ever done Bearded Cabbage? If you have, compare the two. WR is about the same as BC. BC is 5.10c ergo, WR is 5.10c. Thanks for trolling.

Comments: Fairly chossy POS as far as routes go. The bad mortar job holding on the TV sized block is a sloppy joke. If anything comes off, people are going to get hurt on either end of the rope.
