The crux is getting to the first bolt, which is a little high for the Alabama Hills. After the second bolt, the angle eases and the difficulties ease quite a bit.


Right of Sweet Spot around the corner on the east face.


4 bolts to mussey hooks

Two words: Stick clip!

First time I led this, I didn't use a stick clip. I led again this past weekend, and had no problems using the stick clip. I can't afford any more injuries.

I hear you, Steve. One minor slip and it's weeks getting over a sprain--or worse. Just not worth it.

I didn't notice the high first bolt... or the landing. #oblivious
