My climbing buddy, John, on the way to climb in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California.  The size of John's backpack proves that he's more manly than I am. :-)

Comments: 5.8, but the roof and decking potential make this feel harder than 5.10+ routes in the same area.

Comments: Started on The Wong Climb. I vote that combing P1 of The Wong with P2+ of The Long be designated as a new route called The Long Wong. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

The crux is the downward-pointing flake, a giant arrow-shaped feature. As other posters mentioned, the old piton is broken and no longer offers protection. Also, there was a flake broken off that probably once held a small cam, and I tried using another small flake that broke off. With these pieces missing I became nervous and my ... more >>

Comments: I have a love/hate with slab climbing, but really enjoyed this one. It's well bolted, enough tricky moves to keep you thinking, and the views are awesome. We used the anchor as a top rope to start cleaning loose rock from areas around the climb for 5.7 - 5.9 slab options.

Comments: Holds gear well, long-ish climb (90ish feet), with a great view of the county. But I wouldn't call it crack climbing... the ramp below the crack held our feet, and we used the crack more like an edge instead of "crack moves." Regardless, a lot of fun.

Comments: Fun climb, and in the sun most of the day (a plus in the winter!)
Relatively easy (5.10a ish) crack and chimney moves with, in my opinion, a crux being transitioning from the crack to the face for the first bolt (I cursed a lot). You can set up a top rope for this by climbing the 5.4 climb around the corner. I'm surprised that I don't see more people on this climb...

Comments: DO NOT PUT SOMEONE ON IT FOR A FIRST CLIMB WITHOUT DOING IT YOURSELF FIRST! This is not a 5.2 climb, as the book says!!! The consensus on MP is 5.5 to 5.6, with a few people calling the crux move 5.7. Regardless of the exact rating (which will always be subjective) it's a difficult move through the crux, with poor protection, and decking potential should the leader fall. I learned this last weekend when I put someone on their first trad lead. They did it, but thought The Bong was a lot easi... more >>

Comments: Fun climb, perhaps an anti-climatic summit... It's worth doing for the combination of footwork at the start, power-reach on the roof, and heel hook to get out from under the roof. My ankles were scratched badly... consider tape if you're like I am, and not experienced with heel hooks. It's nice to have a spotter as you try to clip the second bolt, the first bolt wouldn't stop you from hitting your head or twisting an ankle in the rocks below.

Comments: Maybe some holds broke off, but this felt much harder than 5.9. The crux felt 5.10b... I was cursing on it, saying, "5.9 My Ass!" and slipped twice, even on top rope, at the transition from climbing straight up to angling right, where the holds were rounded and there's a slight bulge that makes getting feet difficult.

Comments: Great climb... the top is fun but relatively straight-forward 5.6ish to 5.7 climbing. I give it a 5.8 based on the tricky start, which requires precise placement, strength, and flexibility. It was nerve-racking even for our experienced climbers because the crux is early-on, with decking potential. Very much worth doing, I'd climb it again just for the enjoyment and flexibility training.

Comments: Great climb!!! Three-to-four finger-and-smaller master cams or aliens recommended if you're not a confident 5.9 leader. I saw skilled climbers skipping a placement, but there's a risk of decking if you don't place a second piece soon after the first. I'd recommend a minimum of three placements.
