Looking Down the Sparsely Protected P4 of Snake Dike

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Looking Down the Sparsely Protected P4 of Snake Dike

Pitch four of Snake Dike has one bolt for protection, and it's about 65 feet out from the belay. After that bolt, it's another 75 feet to the anchor. That would be pretty spicy, except the climbing's just so awesome and secure. I took this photo once I clipped the anchor. If you look closely, you can just barely see Robin at the last anchor, and, if you squint, you can see another party below her on pitch three.

Rope gun Robin

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Rope gun Robin

I was still nursing a sprained ankle, so I convinced Robin to be the rope gun this weekend. Here she is on a fun climb that ascends a beautiful granite corner.

Starting Royal Arches Just Before Dawn

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Starting Royal Arches Just Before Dawn

In early September, my friend Jason, his dad Larry, his girlfriend Karissa, and I climbed the Royal Arches Route in two teams of two (Jason with Larry and Karissa with me). Here Jason is just about to start up the first pitch chimney with his dad in tow, and Karissa is organizing our rope for when we follow after them.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Robin leading on Tenaya Peak

For our two year anniversary, Robin and I climbed Tenaya Peak. Here she is leading the last pitch of the climb. At this point there are many different ways to get to the top, but we chose the shortest and she took off on the sharp end.

Jason on the Royal Arches Pendulum

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Jason on the Royal Arches Pendulum

Here is Jason leading the pendulum on pitch 9 of the Royal Arches Route. His dad followed him and then it was my turn to lead it. I think this photo really captures the motion of running across the rock toward the ledge that marks the end of the pendulum.

Robin on a Lowball

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Robin on a Lowball

Neither Robin nor I were feeling particularly bold this day, so we decided to try our hand at some extremely lowball boulder problems. This one might have been all of six feet high.

Flashing This Spud's for You

Average Rating = 2.75/5 Flashing This Spud's for You

After my friend, a neophyte sport leader, onsited this climb, I figured I was obligated to get a flash. The thin section down low on this route is well complimented by the massive jugs up high.

Going for the clip on Abitarot

Average Rating = 2.50/5 Going for the clip on Abitarot

I'm clipping the fourth bolt of Abitarot during my onsite. It isn't apparent in this picture due to foreshortening, but there's a healthy distance between the third and fourth bolt on this route.

After the Fall on my First Aid Climb

Average Rating = 1.00/5 After the Fall on my First Aid Climb

My first aid climb was the first pitch of the Pacific Ocean Wall (A1). About midway through, as I was bouncing my next piece, the piece I was on blew, sending me on a twenty foot ride. Robin snapped this shot of me just as I was getting my gear together to jug back up to my high point. The loop of rope is the line I was trailing which got draped over a small ledge. It sort of gives an idea of the size of my fall. Good stuff.

First Aid Lead

Average Rating = 3.33/5 First Aid Lead

I'm about midway up P1 on the Pacific Ocean Wall. It goes at A1 so I figured it would be a good first lead. Well it only took four hours with one good fall. At least things can only get better, eh?

Robin following pitch one of After Six

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Robin following pitch one of After Six

While it is true that the Valley floor is cold in Yosemite during the winter, once you're on a route you become nice and toasty. Robin and I found this out mid-December, 2004 when we climbed After Six.

A 5.7 that makes you think...

Average Rating = 3.00/5 A 5.7 that makes you think...

Coco Puffs is a great warm up climb at South Clear. The crux is physically undemanding, but it requires doing a few cool moves.
