That pink tricam on lunch ledge is in my possession. Guess my almost 40 years of rock climbing skills trumps all those noobs (?!) who have gone before! And no, it didn't take a hammer, just a cleaning tool applied appropriately behind to release the cam action. How long was it there? (#1 rigid friend is still there. Worked on that one years ago to no avail, so guess I still need more experience!)

And yes, I did start multi-picth at Tahquitz at the tender age of 16, and yes, it is a premier spot for rookies to cut their teeh on multi-pitch trad, and yes, I ensure that I'm first on a route (climbing below another party at Tahquitz is the height of folly).

Right on. I was digging the fixed 3 piece anchor at lunch though :P Now I'll actually have to build an anchor!? hahaha

OK, so why doesn't somebody go dig out that red camalot on the first pitch of the Trough?

There is a yellow metolious on the start of the second pitch of whodunnit. I worked it for 15 mins thinking my buddy had put it in. Finally he told me it was fixed. It is not overcammed it's just a odd position. Easy booty!

That's one of the best pranks ever - as you lead and recognize a fixed piece of gear - clip it. Tell your partner to make sure they get the fixed piece of gear as they come up behind you...
