The Groove Stands Alone

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Groove Stands Alone

Seeing The Groove without a climber on a weekend day is a rarity. Supertopo describes it as a 6-foot-wide pipe cut in half the long way. It's fun.

Amanda Cruises p2 of The Groove

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Amanda Cruises p2 of The Groove

Once you've done the first pitch, and the first couple moves of the second pitch, the climb just gets easier and easier. Amanda had very little trouble with the whole route.

View of the Leap and Hogwild

Average Rating = 2.50/5 View of the Leap and Hogwild

From the pull-off on route 50, one can easily see how steep is the leap, and how mild is hogwild.

View East from P5 Cathedral Peak

Average Rating = 0.00/5 View East from P5 Cathedral Peak

With each pitch, the view of Budd lake and the peaks east of Cathedral kept getting better. One cool thing about climbing Cathedral Peak is that by the time you are done, you are looking down at many many neighboring mountains (including half dome in the distance, not in this shot).

Half Dome from Clouds Rest

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Half Dome from Clouds Rest

Amanda sits and contemplates weighty things atop Clouds Rest, the highest granite peak in Yosemite. She seems to be mimicing Half Dome's posture.

Sunset atop Lembert

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Sunset atop Lembert

After completing the Northwest Books route on our final afternoon in Yosemite, August 2006, Amanda and I took a quick timer shot before struggling to find our way down from this thing. In the distance over Amanda's left shoulder you can see Cathedral Peak, our conquest from the first day of our Yosemite visit.

The n00b learns to boulder

Average Rating = 3.62/5 The n00b learns to boulder

Here's the famous noobular one working a tough "boulder route" on outdoor rock with real rock holds and no rope. We couldn't figure out how to get it to stay over the big rock. We all shouted "allez" when he climbed. I don't know what it means but I guessed maybe it meant "I'm scared that you are climbing without a rope on real rock climbing holds." I don't know what kind of holds they were, metolius maybe, but they were sharper than the colored ones at the gym. I think maybe he said they were called "homard" holds or something because I thought I heard a local guy say "homard, masshole" as we walked away and went to the gym for real climbing (with ropes).

Winter in the Chasm

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Winter in the Chasm

It was a fine day for skiing the trails of the state park, but not the best day for climbing. This view is north? toward the chasm entrance from the middle of the chasm. Dreams of spring ...

Martin Groovin at HP40

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Martin Groovin at HP40

Martin, the Brit who encouraged me to climb more rocks one summer, enjoys a few pulls at Horsepens. I listed this picture as one of the problem "Chicks," but I'm actually not quite sure what problem it is. September 2001.

Derek livin free in The Notch

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Derek livin free in The Notch

Dbyte cruised up this tricky 11a on July 3, 2004. The mantle on this climb is no joke. I discovered that while getting shut down on top rope.

Post Roof, Pre Crimp

Average Rating = 3.60/5 Post Roof, Pre Crimp

We found this 50-foot sport climb while checking out Precious Orr. It was a good time. I led it, with a few shakes and mostly unquestionable ethics. Kevin led it after. Photo by Jeff.

Mining for a Pump

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Mining for a Pump

Once you leave that hueco on Goldenlocks, prepare to battle the pump. Perhaps next year my technique will beat the pump and I'll lead this nemesis without falling. This year, however, the steepening crack spat me out twice. Photo by Kevin. Not awful for a belayer photo. December 04.

Jeremy on the Eaglet Belay Ledge

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Jeremy on the Eaglet Belay Ledge

The young man of the mountain? Amanda snapped this picture while we celebrated our five-year anniversary by climbing The Eaglet in Franconia Notch. One can't be too careful while ascending interesting geological formations in The Notch - The Old Man would be whispering in my ear if he was still holding his ground. In pace requiescat.

Amanda did a great job following the West Chimney on the Eaglet. She's backstepping and chimneying like a pro in this pic. I think I'll keep her!

Gabe (cracklover) wrestled with Flesh for Lulu, but it was Lulu who took the prize on this day. This shot shows our hero straining at the crux moves.

Jake Pulls the Lip on LBM

Average Rating = 3.25/5 Jake Pulls the Lip on LBM

It took us a couple tries, tag-team style, to figure out the moves on Little Big Man (5.11b). Once we had it sussed, Jake was the one who gunned the thing. This shot shows him pulling from 30-degree overhang to a lip that falls back to 45-degree slab.

A panorama south from Mt. Garfield

Average Rating = 3.00/5 A panorama south from Mt. Garfield

I love the Pemi wilderness. These shots were taken from the summit of Mt. Garfield. The AT comes up from Franconia Notch along the Lafayette ridge on the right, crosses over Garfield (affording this fine view, among others), then heads northeast to Crawford Notch and the Presidentials.

OK on The Roof

Average Rating = 3.25/5 OK on The Roof

Photo by foograbinstone, belay by tcollins. June 21, 2003. The roof is a fine warmup climb, weighing in at 5.7. The roof part is rather easy, certainly not the crux of this short climb.
