Comments: Somewhere at the bottom of a crag in Morocco is the wedding ring that was clipped to a locker on my harness. Best to leave these on the ground, methinks.

Comments: We climbed this in May of....2005? Can't recall. It's about a pitch tall. Some free, some aid. Junky overhang down low to a nice crack that tapers to aid placements. We picked what looked like the most likely line and judging from the trundles it was unclimbed, but we found a bolt on the summit so someone found a way up. No special gear needed, I remember a hand-placed KB was about the most exotic. No nails, just the one piece.

I wrote a better description for Eric Bjornstad but this shou... more >>

Comments: Climbed this in February 2012. It's pretty good. We pulled a scary block off under the roof and now the scary is gone. A local told us this is a Steve Goins route, name/date unknown. Recommendable.

Comments: I used to use this as a downclimb to return to the east face, instead of hiking off the endless switchbacks on the trail.

Comments: So about 3/4 of the way up the last [wide var.] pitch there's a horizontal crack out to the right. Plug a 1.5"-2.5" piece in here and clip it a bit short and it should keep the rope from shoving your big cam back in there.

That's my good deed for the day. Off to help old ladies across the street.

Comments: We watched them lower a rescuer to what was obviously not gonna be where you guys were, then winch him back up and set up to do it all over again. Eventually we went to bed. Glad everything turned out OK.

Comments: Stay left onto that dome with the thin seams, and it's a bit more interesting. There's a pin to let you know the old dads managed to get up it.

Comments: Eyeball the Tower on the way up, park at the new long pullout, and walk back downhill :( until you are back at the talus field that leads to your destination. Should be 45-50 min. if you get it right.

For added value, continue to Stanford Point via Wind Chill [the obscure Elliott Robinson/Bruce Morris thing] and jog down the trail straight to your car. Don't leave gear at the base if you do this.

Comments: The pin is really low, level with the belay or a bit below. It is a rusty knifeblade in a horizontal, that moves a half inch or so if you don't manage to yank it all the way out. We went above it but below the roof. This pitch will take a bit of time to figure out, but it's okay.
