Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : First ascent near Bishop

First ascent near Bishop

First ascent near Bishop

FA of Over & Out on Wild Rose Buttress, 6/11/05. Nice climbing on white granite not far from the road (below the dam at South Lake), the cracks were climbed in the '80s and no one did any face routes. Lots of east side routes were developed in heavy snow years (like this one!), with Tioga closed the Valley is 6 hours instead of 2 hrs. Despite the power drill this bolt took around 15 minutes to place, feeling out the bolting stance, breaking off some crumbly stuff for the key right hand hold and right heel hook, drilling, pumping out and downclimbing to rest, repeating. Photo (and patient belay!) by Karin Wuhrmann.
