4 out of 5 stars Good Warmup for the Wall

Good climbing, ended up passing another party before it started raining. Not a good idea to exit onto the basin above, very likely to knock off rocks.

5 out of 5 stars Our first day at EPC for 2011...our first climb

We always start on LC on our annual trip to EPC. This year was no exception. We both felt great, no nerves, just pure climbing fun. Better to lower off of P3 and TR your second; the belay at P3 is pretty crappy for two people.

5 out of 5 stars We start our Annual EPC trip on this climb

Three pitches of climbing fun. I have to say, I was nervous, it's been a LONG time since I had to smear! So used to gunks horizontals. Three pitches later, it was feeling good. The approach to this climb has changed dramatically due to the hurricane and possibly the rock fall. It's actually easier, but, you do have to do a little scrambling. Also, there is a lot of plant life on the wall, you have to climb through it and around it.

5 out of 5 stars Our traditional first EPC climb

It's always fun. We did the last pitch twice so that Mitch could get in an equal number of leads.
