Jun 13, 2024 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Fell on last pitch. Popped off crimp by first bolt and nothing but a bunch of bloody knuckles to show for it.

West Face
Jun 8, 2024 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Climbed with Heather in very wet conditions. Much bigger day than anticipated (17h car to car), but lots of fun. Led 5.9, 11a roof traverse, and 11+ roof. One fl on traverse and 11+. Notes for next time: 11+ save 2s and three for the top. Last piece over the lip is .4 (.3 might be better to not block the hold?) but kinda gets in the way. 8+ is very hard and should save bigger gear as much as possible. Nuts aren’t really needed/helpful. Brought axe and was glad to have it for the descent.

The Nose
May 18, 2024 · Lead. Climbed with Jesse and Justin over 3 days. Amazing trip, perfect weather, and we had almost the whole formation to ourselves. Fixed to sickle and climbed in thee days with bivy on el cap tower and camp 5. Passed by 4 niad parties including Alex honnold. Gave some miso to a 5th mid party that topped out a few hours after us. Freed most climbing up to el cap tower (3 3s, 2 4s was nice to have, would be unhappy with less). Also freed boot from bottom of the flake. Led lynn hill traverse (French of course) which was super fun. Great roof (forgot cam hooks which made climbing up to roof slow). Did not get to free climb pancake flake, and aided next pitch (mistake, should have attempted to lead. Tr soloed pitch before camp 6 which was absolutely fantastic and should lead next time. Led changing corners free to corner change, stepped on black totem then pulled in. Free climbed off of black totem, but got gassed and took on gear on thin hand section above it. Kinda scary with the exposure. Jugged next two pitches, but should have tried to free them led wild 10 crack before bolt ladder in the rim. Accidentally continued beyond the anchor, but reversed thankfully because that would have sucked (hauling off rim would be bad) Took nuts, micro nuts, offset set, tcu grey to blue, .1, .2, double blue yellow black totem, triple .5 to 3, two 4s, 5, and two thin cam hooks. Next time would pair down to .1, .2, double black totem, triple .3 to 3, double 4, 5, and two thin cam hooks. Offsets were not ever really necessary and instead just complicated the rack. Triples in finger probably removes need for nuts, and we never used micro nuts anyways (although a set of micro and small nuts would be good in case great roof has no lower out point, but perhaps you could just leave all gear for follower anyways
