BETA PHOTO: Reprieve (rt 79) follows the face between Full Sto...
Reprieve is located on the south corner of Two Pines Buttress, left of Full Stop. Start about 2 feet right of the corner up the face. Find crimp holds to ascend the wall to a small ledge at the top of a bulge about 20 feet up. Continue up the face avoiding the corner to your left and Full Stop (rt 78) to your right. A very nice climb.
I watched this route being lead over memorial day weekend. very small nuts for pro but pro nonetheless. Looks like a decent lead route if one is solid at the grade (at the lake)and doesn't mind a little run-out!
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee." Jules..
I think the source for the route now called The Reprieve was something I did in 1962 we called Richard's Reprieve. The route started where The Reprieve starts but veered right to Full Stop for protection (and easier moves) before moving back left. The first ascent was done on the lead (in the days before nuts). I've posted two pictures that give some idea about where we went.
