Comments: The ONLY lead climb out in Santee! I'm hearing that the upper overhang is more in the 5.13 range.

Comments: Wow, what a blast from the past! All I can claim on this one was that I followed a guy in the Navy, who was really strong, back in 1983? I was partnerless and his partner for the day didn't show so he recruited me to follow him on Waverly down in the Camp 4 parking lot. I was two years into climbing myself and was stoked to get a chance to get this exposure!

After getting spooked on the 3-4 class approach, across some grassy ledges, I assumed the position and belayed this guy while he ran it ou... more >>

Comments: The start to this is harder than I remember back in the day. The flakes appear to have possible changed. Difficulty eases up as you go higher using the arete, yet your pace slows for obvious reasons!

Comments: You escaped through the cave after the offwidth? Lol, that's the retreat if you decide not to take on the committing topout above! Next time you'll have to finish it. Not that you'll have any problem but thought I'd add: we caught a gal on two pads that bailed while reaching for the finishing jug above the face! Thank God she didn't whack her head on the ledge on the way down! She was okay though.

Comments: Wow, did this one b.i.t.d.! HB nuts worked well for this. Stemming in a small dihedral if I remember correctly. Easier (5.9) climbing above to anchors

Comments: I give it a 10b rating just because of the topout and it's overhanging, somewhat strenuous pull over the top lip (yes, I do topout on boulders).

Comments: I can't imagine rating this route anything less than four stars. This is another Woodson classic. A poor sequence will definitely beat you down but avoiding the bad sections accompanied with good footwork brings out the best in this one!

Comments: I have to disagree with the reference to IHMT having poor feet in the first fifteen feet of climbing. Marginal finger jams yes but feet are key here and are quite positive considering the overhanging nature of that part of the route.

Comments: Wow! This route brings back frightening memories when I and K. Klis did this route back in the early 80's! If my memory serves me correctly, I remember leading both pitches, first, liebacking up a small, left facing dihedral to a liken spattered flake which you undercling for about 4-5 meters out to the left. You then, after the flake runs out, with the last cam under the flake to your right about two meters, pull off this crux high-step (5.10b) by smearing up onto a nub into a standing position... more >>
