Comments: Whaaaaat! That's disgusting. If I actually placed a bolt 2.5 feet away from a good natural piece I should be beat to a bloody pulp. That's just unacceptable and future generations should know that's just not right. Unfortunately I misread Matt's description and believed that the easy variation he spoke of traversed in from Narrows crack higher up along the flake. Now that I go back and re-read his description I realize that the ledge he speaks of is the ledge not far above our bolt. What am... more >>

Comments: Cameron.... The single bolt we placed can clearly be seen in the photo that Greg took and if you are familiar with the routes you mention you will see that the bolt is not within reach of either route. Believe me when I say that I put a lot of thought into placing a bolt before I do. This route deserved a bolt to produce an excellent mixed route that regularly forms up, period. Furthermore it should be said that we debated climbing this summer rock climbing wall in crampons for fear of scratchi... more >>

Comments: Doesn't that woman of yours have YOU sleeping with the hounds yet. If I came out there (and if it was a few years ago:-) I'd be sleeping with your biaaaatch while you spooned the hounds since I'd be the one doing the sending of this sick looking route. Nevada ice? Can't be! Let me know when it's in. Can I climb this one day and do epinephrine the next? If so I'm there!

Comments: Kevin Cooper, I and various partners put up three new ice routes on this crag this last weekend 12/1/2006. Perhaps they have been done before. If not they are now called "Skidmark Left, Skidmark Right and Road Rash". All three climb 1-2" thick ice and use existing bolts and natural protection except for Road Rash which required the addition of one bolt above a loose flake. They form most years for a few days. Skidmark Left is the black water streak of Alley Cat Street and uses this routes prote... more >>

Comments: We linked the first three pitches of the Snaz (helps to shorten the rope). 4th pitch traverse is hair raising but the pro shows up as you keep traversing. Pitch 5 is serious! The machine head bolt doesn't inspire much confidence as you look up at the blank slab above. Keep long runners on the gear off the belay lest you get rope drag at the top of the pitch. The crux of the slab is at the bolt but you get a tricky move a ways out. Fear not though, if you stay on the feet you'll make it to th... more >>

Comments: The rock around the pitons on the summit is starting to deteriorate. [Definitely] could use replacement. Also beware of the last two pins on the ladder as they are loosening. Climbed this on two hex, one nut stacks for the first 30 feet! Made it A-scary. BRING THE BIG CAMS! Also bring a new piece of paper for the summit register the [original] is full with eight or nine ascents. Fun climb in a nice canyon.

Comments: Yes, take the dirt road on the left just before the main road curves left and turns to dirt. Follow this road heading towards the cliffs untill you find a gate and trailhead in the middle of nowhere. Follow the old road.

Comments: So, now that you've included this route I assume the nightmares have subsided. Have the moments of sanity left you too? The ones that occasionally entered into that peanut of yours telling you that perhaps you might live longer if you just stayed away from hard aid. Where have they gone? I remember your eyes after this adventure. Fear doesn't begin to discribe the look of horror you had. I remember the heartfelt discussion we had when you returned. Something about how stupid aid climbing ... more >>

Comments: Sorry! Should have been more specific about heading out the left of the roof. This pitch protects a little better with a set of Lowe Balls (or at least they let me think it was safer!). Thought the second pitch was 11a huh?

Comments: We climbed D7 on 7/2/05 and conditions were great. A little wet on the pitch before the crux. Other than that it was totally dry. Casual still had a lot of snow on the ramp mid way. Probably still real wet. Another party was on Pervertical and another on Directissima on Chasm View wall. North Chimney was climbable on rock to the right once you got into it. Broadway was a snow walk to the base the yellow wall climbs.

Comments: Good job you two! There must be some sort of dehabilitating hallucinations that slow people down on those last pitches. Great shot of the cacti by the way! Let's hope their there for years to come. I don't believe they have anything like that on El Cap.

Comments: Tony- I don't see this as such a squall. They obviously did the thing fast. It appears folks just want to know more of the details of the ascent. If they were there the day before it seems perfectly logical and ethically legal to scout the first few pitches. This would account for being spotted down there. On the other hand if fixed ropes were involved (which for the sake of the accuser should have been specifically witnessed to justify accusations) then there is a squall. I don't see the ... more >>

Comments: Yes, nice work Alan and Stefan! It's about time somebody got it done. Yo B-dog! A buddy? Shit, what about all those nights cuddling in ledges buddy. I don't remember being buddies at the top of this route though. The last pitch is a doosie and we were quite strung out by then. As I recall we were 26hrs car to car sans watch. Does "watchless" mean you climbed it with your eyes closed? That must be why it took so long. Pretty awsome gaining hieght fast on this route huh alan? Makes for one... more >>

Comments: Definitely a bush climb but does have some fun climbing. We climbed straight up the very exposed and questionably protected finger crack in the steep wall above the midway point of the peg traverse. Once in it protects well but the first move is a doosie. Felt like the hardest moves of the climb. Sounds like we might have been off route. At the top of the crack we traversed over into the system you speak of which takes you up to the edge of the arete and a nice spot for lunch. Then we trave... more >>
