me and the route i took.


This is a nice 5.9 as there are some sketchy smooth areas towards the top, and a crack with some layback moves needed, which was the crux of the climb. not bad though.


The rock is easy to pick out, as it is the one with all of the graffiti. The west face is an easy scramble to the top. This route is on the east face.


When I did it, there is a spot to sling a 30 ft webbing around the boulder at the top, and then a 15 ft webbing around the top of that boulder as a second anchor. It would be easy to set a few top anchors if people had the equipment.

Wow, a three star, 65 foot Grade V 5.9 top rope, and, its by my home!

Maybe if I get an early enough start, I won't have to spend the night on it...

I heard Alex Honnold is looking to solo this beast. Half Dome was just a warm up for this endeavor.

Do you think if I bolted this rock, it would take away from the fine graffiti art?

I have been thinking about doing my first Trad PG13 TR.

Would this be a good one to cut my teeth on? Is it recommended to wear fingerless gloves during traditional season?
