Apr 24, 2019 · 6 pitches. Lead. Took a 30 footer when a ball nut and micro beak pulled on the pitch above Ahwahnee, fell within a foot of the broken tower below. Finished pitch as A3 using an assortment of beaks, rest of route went clean.
Oct 8, 2018 · 30 pitches. Lead / Onsight. Climbed clean 5.9 C4. 1-2 hook moves, fewer than 5 fixed heads. No #6 cam. Bring small nuts, ball nuts, micro cams, large cam hooks, and ideally at least triples in all sizes of beaks are critical. Double totems are indispensable. Some expando on P19/23.
Jun 27, 2018 · 25 pitches. Solo. 5 days, very hot. Route went into shade at 2PM. Climbed 5 pitches at night. Did NOT bring enough water. Would recommend bringing a big bro or wooden block to protect the Bismark if soloing. Almost every pitch traverses to some degree.
