Spike Jugs Up to P5, Bermuda Dunes
This is Spike (Richard Heinrich) jugging up a fixed line to P5. I led the pitch the day before, and cleaned it on rappel. You can see the big, gaping Slack Chimney that we wanted to avoid hauling bags up. The two popular free climbs La Cosita and Sacherer Cracker would be in the line of fire if loose rock was dislodged.
The next pitch traversed west (to the right, in the photo), and we were able to hang fixed lines right of the tree at the edge of the photo.
