Comments: LOST: 8 blue BD quickdraws, with a purple paint stripe on the bolt-end 'biners. Someone must have accidentally grabbed them -they weren't with the rest of my gear when I went to leave. There were several people from other groups with the same type of draws, but mine are marked with purple.
If you or anyone you know was climbing Big Chief today (Sunday Aug 11), please check to make sure my draws didn't go home with you. If they did, please PM me or reply to this post and I'll come pick them up... more >>

Comments: I think this is the route listed as 'Super Slab 4 You' .10c in "Locals Guide to Rock Climbs of N. Tahoe". Your description matches the climb we did today and the photos in the guidebook.

Comments: Ok, it could have been HFCS, I just didn't think we were that far to the left. The description fits pretty well, though. I'll retract my previous comments just to be safe. Thanks for looking out.

Comments: Very fun, perfect for a first-ever roof move! Harder than 5.7 if you're only 5'0" and have to throw for the (out-of-reach) knob and then hang one-handed before pulling it. Awesome!!

And yes, 'Hard Up' is a better start.

Comments: Even as a complete noob, I can cast a hearty "NO" on adding belay anchors. That sounds silly.
This was my first multi-pitch trad lead, after learning gear placement on a route the day before. I appreciated the LACK of bolted belay anchors, because I got to practice BUILDING them (isn't that integral to multi-pitch trad?).

On the positive side: This was an awesome first multi-pitch trad lead!! Lovely rock, good variety of moves, excellent arete with sweet exposure... Everything I'd have as... more >>

Comments: There's no need for Stymingersfink's hating... This is simply a good "learning" route.
Yes, this route is extremely easy, but it's a great place to learn to place gear, with easy rests everywhere, almost zero risk of falling, and ample placement opportunities. Also a good route to bring kids or timid beginners to.
