Comments: On my old topo, I had the slab to the right listed as the "scab project". There was a sketchy, thin, scab-looking flake near the top blank section. I could never get myself to really pull on it. Maybe it's gone now...
Comments: Thanks for the link Brent. That was cool! Too bad they got the name of the 2nd route wrong... It actually looks like he climbs a hybrid of Derecho and Deluge. I'm not sure how Chris ended up doing Derecho, so that could be the way I guess. Very cool regardless.
Comments: The blue line is Eric's Flashy Oddity V6. First sent by Eric Sutton. It actually goes straight up (not to the right as the line depicts). The yellow route is a line that I thought we did first in 1995 called Five Alive (there was five of us there climbing) V4. Red line is a really good easy warm-up, V0+.
Comments: The original sit start makes it a 5-move wonder... Start low with two bad crimps, make a hard move to a right hand gaston in the seam feature, left hand intermediate crimp, hard move up with the left hand (to the hold I have in the picture), right hand intermediate (the one in the picture), jump to the lip with your right, and then belly flop over. Packs a punch in its 8 feet.
Comments: Hey Mike. Yes, Nunan is the sit-start problem to the left of Greasy. I remember it having some sharp little crystals. V3 - I think I got the FA. On the opposite side of the boulder, Dave put up another V3 called Looming. It has a jump start to good edge and then goes up and right, escaping to the right side slab.
Comments: Hey Chris. Scary Trees is right by Jaba. If you're standing in front of Jaba, look to your right and you'll see an obvious prow about 20 feet up the hill. Scary Trees climbs the right side. Enjoy!
Comments: Ha. I warned everyone in my description! This thing is ridiculous! I have a sequence of shots somewhere showing a repeat ascent (the photo above is part of the sequence). If I can find them, I'll post them. I don't remember the exact sequence, other than desparately tic-tacking my way up on tiny crystals.
