Comments: Approach was straight forward. Follow road/trail roughly 1.5 miles until it peters out into a talus slope. Follow talus slope up to base. You can see the whale formation from the trail.

Don't take the first talus slope up that does not cross the trail. That slope goes up to trango / gaucho areas.

Aided bony fingers. Did the 5.11b direct start with ladders and all.

I was able to do two hook moves (2 bd cliff hangers) after the three bolts to gain the small ledge. Standing on the ledge I was ab... more >>

Comments: Completed West Crack on 6-16-12. I recommend climbing this route in the morning or the late afternoon. The midday sun hits hard on this wall and will make you sweat. The first two pitches are the hardest and the rest is cruising from there.
First pitch takes gear up to a BD #2. Doubles in the lower to midsize range are nice but the first pitch eats up nuts too (I placed three.)
Second pitch pulls over the crux roof protected by an angle piton and gains the wide crack. Stay out of the cra... more >>


Location: California : Yosemite National Park : Yosemite Valley : Half Dome : Snake Dike (5.7 R)

Comments: Did snake dike Saturday 5/12. Left curry village parking lot at 8:30am and got back to car at 11:00pm. Last chance for water was at Nevada Falls. Fill up and drink as much as you can there. The climber’s trail is not too hard to find and follow in daylight using supertopo description. Had to wait in line at the climb for about an hour since we left late. We topped out and descended cables with prusiks before dark. Hiked down to valley via headlamp.
I am a solid 5.8 trad leader and this is the r... more >>

Location: California : Los Angeles Basin : Angeles National Forest : Texas Canyon : The Elephant's Head (& Hype... : Hyperion (5.7)

Comments: Climbed the 2 pitches on 1\23\11. First belay anchor has 2 bolts, one of which has a spinning hangar. Second pitch was easy and had good bolts at the top. Most of the bolts on this multipitch climb are 5/16" grade 5.
The bolt at the bottom crux / overhang was well positioned and allowed me to lead without any risk.

NOTE: Bring TWO ropes as the first belay station is rather high and cannot be rapped off of with a 70m rope.

Comments: Climbed on this route Sunday 1/23/11. The bolt before the crux / overhang is dangerously loose. Seems that a lot of people fall on this bolt as there was a bail out carabiner on it when we got there. My group also could not finish the climb and bailed on the same dangerous bolt.
I climbed up the class IV backside to top rope this route and was disappointed with the top rope anchors. There is an old two bolt chain with quick links and a newer two bolt chain set. The newer chain is so small you ca... more >>
