Rock Climbing Photo: Me at the base of Mechanic's Route at Tahquitz
My climbing partner and I took advantage of the long Labor Day weekend to go out and climb Clyde Minaret! We had a longer day than we anticipated (18 hours camp-to-camp from our tent at Minaret Lake, including 6 hours in the descent, 4.5 of which were in the dark), but it was a great route!

2 ladies on the summit of Clyde Minaret! Don't need a dude to put the rope up there for us!

Thanks! The Minarets are definitely gorgeous and it was the perfect place to escape the Labor Day hordes. Lizzy Trower

Nice send. Not a gimme route for the grade but great route isn't it? I'm shocked and pleased for you that you didn't have any company on Labor Day weekend. I'm always amazed when and where crowds will or will not form.

Do the Third Pillar next if you haven't already.

Will be heading up there on Sunday to do that route and a few others as well as Ritter and Banner. Should be a blast! Jasmine Kall
