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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You'll be lucky to find this small number of climbers at the base of practice face on a fine June weekend day such as this one. Luckily, everyone was cordial and in the sharing mood, so much practice leading and top roping was done by all.

PLEASE COMMENT BEFORE VOTING. Hoppinbig took a series of pictures of me leading Thinner (trad 5.7) at Steven King Library, South Clear Creek, Obed. I like this one because it shows how off balance I was while trying to place gear. I think I ended up placing six cams on this short route.

PLEASE COMMENT BEFORE VOTING. Belay by ambler, photo by robbovius. There's not much gear above this placement on this climb, so I wanted to make it good. I had just bought a new #3 camalot with my REI dividend the day before. It came in handy here. I ended up placing a red tricam at the top to protect the top-out.

PLEASE COMMENT BEFORE VOTING. Belayed by ambler, photo by robbovius. Most routes at C-Wall have thin, bouldery cruxes that earn their ratings within three moves of the ground. I bouldered the start of Ceaseless Turmoil (5.8) and placed the pink tricam you see ahead of time. When I started the lead I grabbed a mouthfull of nylon to make the first clip easier.

11 Orangekyak Pullin roofs at the Quarries

Average Rating = 3.40/5 11 Orangekyak Pullin roofs at the Quarries

PLEASE COMMENT BEFORE VOTING. This is me pulling down on a short TR climb in the "new" area of the revitalized quarries. After an Irish exchange student went missing a few years back the quarries were closed. In the ensueing drain-and-dredge effort, 17 dead bodies (including FES) were found in the area. Presumed to be swimmers, cliff divers and mafia dumpees. In the past few months the quarries have been filled with dirt from the big dig which was then seeded. Organized clean-up efforts including graffiti removal have resulted in an urban climbing wonderland. Probably a 5.6 or 5.7. TR fun. Photo by Deb Fraser.
