Rock Climbing Photo: tough moves on the arete down low

Morning Wood 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Solarium
Hard (and nicely slippery) from the start. Gain the arete moving right to left, then straight up. Defined cruxes (11a-, 10d) are interspersed with easier and fun moves. Finishes w/ a worthy crack.Can descend w/ one rope in two raps if you swing left and utilize the anchors for Split Decision. Or rap 115' from the Sendero Luminoso anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
