Unnamed FA in Indian Creek

Average Rating = 3.75/5 Unnamed FA in Indian Creek

Doug Scott leads the initial corner on this two pitch first ascent in Fringe of Death Canyon, Indian Creek, UT. If anyone recognizes the route and knows what, if anything, it is referred to in the guide book, please let me know. It went at mid-range 5.10, as I recall.

Peace Dove

Average Rating = 2.83/5 Peace Dove

Located minutes from downtown Providence, RI, the boulders at Lincoln Woods may have their fair share of graffiti, but when you are climbing and focusing on the movement, you barely notice it.

Here Meg grabs the sharp undercling crimp next to the "tag" that gave Peace Dove it's name. One of the best V4's at the Woods.

Mmmm, Pastries!

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Mmmm, Pastries!

One of the deadly sins available on the main street in Chamonix is the abundance of decadent food.

Here Edge, in half of his alpine regalia, guards the packs and enjoys a chocolate croissant.

Dawn on Mont Blanc

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Dawn on Mont Blanc

The first rays of morning light appear high on the Brenva Spur route, on the Italian side of Mont Blanc.

Leaving the Trident Hut at 1:30 AM, we descended to Col Moore before climbing the fantastically exposed ridge via headlamp. High on the face, the first rays of dawn illuminate Charles Carr as he crests the terminal serac band, marking the end of major difficulties on the route. The seracs were making terrible creaking noises, making my position under them less than enviable.

We summited at 8:30 AM before descending the French side following the Bosses Ridge via the Grand Mulets for a complete traverse of the mountain.

Topping Out on the Frendo Spur

Average Rating = 3.74/5 Topping Out on the Frendo Spur

After a 4AM start and 14 hours on the face, I top out the last pitch of 65 degree ice on the Frendo Spur.

Carrying only 4 ice screws for the route, and leaving two of them at the belay, meant having to run out the full 160 foot pitch a bit.

The Aiguille du Midi, North Face

Average Rating = 3.67/5 The Aiguille du Midi, North Face

The North Face of the Aiguille du Midi taken the day after a major storm and the day before we climbed the Frendo Spur.

Due to the recent warm spells in Europe, I have heard that there is considerably less permanent snow on the face. This is a shame, as the route in the conditions we climbed it in was stellar.

The line of the Frendo Spur begins under the large buttress and face one third of the way in from the left of this picture, then works it's way up the faint ridgeline aiming for the prominent snow arete high on the face before weaving it's way up to the secondary highpoint just left of the summit. For scale, the snow arete was 600+ feet in length.

Mixed Alpine Climbing Early on the Frendo Spur

Average Rating = 3.20/5 Mixed Alpine Climbing Early on the Frendo Spur

After picking our way through the bergshrund via headlamp, we weave up the Frendo's initial ice face.

A 4AM start meant that these steep mixed pitches were climbed in relative dark and very cold temps; here the first light of day enables a picture and reveals the awesome exposure.

Finger Jams

Average Rating = 3.84/5 Finger Jams

The thin tips finger crack at the crux of Vertigo. While this is typically the third pitch, Derek combined this with the pendulum on pitch two to make it one burly rope stretcher.

The Handcrack Pitch

Average Rating = 3.50/5 The Handcrack Pitch

Pitch four of Vertigo involves a difficult step right to reach a thin crack that widens to off hands at the top. Three bolt belay below the pitch, three piton belay above.

Crescent Moon

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Crescent Moon

The fifth pitch of Vertigo is the notorious Half Moon Crack, a completely unprotected 5.9R off-width with a 60 foot run-out.
Here Derek opts for the Crescent Moon variation, which ascends to the base of Half Moon then traverses left on thin smears to access a thin corner which leads to a beautiful thin finger crack through a bulge, which eventually opens to hand size. A very comfy, three bolt belay above.
