Lamarck Col - Go onto the left side of the snowfield and head for the right side of the tiny sharp peak on the far left of this photo (looks like a tiny house), to go over the col proper.

Comments: I took the 5.7 friction version, but started from the bolted anchor to the right of the chimney. Downclimbed back to the bolted anchor, as I wasn't "prepared" to lead the rest of the route. The one time I climbed the chimney, I looked up at that bolt, which is close to 40 feet away. Didn't see any opportunities for pro, so I rapped from the bolted anchor.

Good to know there is pro ten feet above the chimney. Still, I think the bolt is approximately 40 feet above the chimney belay.

Comments: About five or six years ago, my partner fell before clipping the first bolt from about 15-18 feet up. Didn't have a cam in the slot before the bolt. Hit the ledge on the way down and broke his ankle. Although he had successfully led Shadow before, he peeled off this time.

I've also seen a guy slide down on lead, keep his footing when hitting the ledge and jump to the ground, sticking the landing! It was scary, but nicely done. No injury.

I like to pre-clip the first bolt on a lower from Desper... more >>

Comments: The bolt after the first pitch roof (at the top of the chimney), is more like 40 feet away, with no pro in between.

Comments: This is a good climb on solid rock. This past summer, we watched a heli-rescue off of Doggie Style from nearby P-Wall. Apparently, a guy fell just before clipping the third bolt, which resulted in a broken ankle.

This climb has a bolted anchor with chains and clips for easy rappelling.

Comments: Per J. Alber's comments above, I added similar comments to the "Free and Easy" page. I started below the hand crack for the first pitch of F&E with a 60m rope. Had to simul about 20 feet to the anchor. A 70 would have done the trick for P1 of F&E. Haven't done this route, though.

Comments: Good climb. If you start from the bottom of the buttress, where there is a crack about 10 feet up, the first pitch is a full 70 meters. You can start higher up, but for full value, start at the bottom.

Comments: The hike from North Lake to Lamarck Col actually gains about 3700 feet (then you descend into the canyon). The views from the col are worth it. Head toward the left side of the col/saddle to go over at the correct spot. The col has a sign so you know you are at the right spot.

Comments: The "new" bolts above the crack have been removed. The one just above the crack is still there. Noticed this today as I top-roped the climb.

Comments: The first pitch, after the initial dihedral, is a long and sustained wide crack. Stoutness!

Descent info: From the bolts at the summit, rap (less than 100'- not sure how far) to the big ledge where there are two bolts (20-30 feet right of the final wide crack)and a manky fixed rope. Next, rap approximately 110' - 115' to a two-bolt anchor which is somewhat climber's right from the last anchor at the ledge. You go over a couple of edges/ledges before you can see it. We only had a 60 meter rope,... more >>
