What was left of the rack when I topped out on the last pitch of Snake Dike on Half Dome.

Comments: It seems so. I recall the anchors had nice new bolts though and the bolt once the roof traverse ended before the free climbing was new.

Comments: My gear recommendation: single set of cams to 2", handful of nuts, slings. Only placed the #2 once. There are a couple places you could place the #3, but it' kinda worthless.

Comments: The correct gully has a few pin/tat belay stations, slung pinnacles, a couple of new shiny (lead?) bolts and is thus easy to make sure you are in the correct gully. If it's hard, you're probably off route.

Comments: Length: 205m, 6 pitches
Sun Exposure: receives a lot of sun
Time: most parties take 2.5 - 4 hours to climb the route
car-to-car: 5 - 7 hours
Difficulty: 5.10a or 5.10b (variation on P6)
Rack: Micro cams to 3" (#3 camalot), nuts

Pony Express climbs mostly excellent grey rock and follows the rib, arete, and face just left of the Unnamed (The Great Pumpkin) route. The 5.10a section is short and protected reasonably well with bolts. The rest of the cl... more >>

Comments: If I recall (not my photo) the cam was behind a block that shifted and crushed the cam.

Comments: As the photo chris linked indicates, I think we may have gone all the way to the Fingertrip finish. The Vogel guide lists this route very vaguely. Is there any other info about it?

Comments: Will this book include all the obscure routes and areas? Seems like there would be many more routes. Or is it a more "select routes" kinda book? I'll be interested to take a peak.

Kudos on the hard work that is guidebook production!

Comments: I recall this photo being taken by John Sherman. Sent in to Mammut and they said it was cut. The sling was part of a directional on a rap line he was using to "clean" a route. Failed after some bouncing while prying off loose blocks. Whether it was animal chews, malicious intent, or whatever the synopsis was cutting. There is a whole report that Mammut did on this sling somewhere out in the nether regions of the internet. Or I might have it.

Comments: Liberty Bell 5.8ish. Often top roped. Super fun and grabbing above that bulge is "exciting"!

Comments: There are two great new ASCA bolted rap stations on the West side of the formation (away from the other Needles) directly under the fire lookout. Down about 15 feet on a great shelf. One 60m rope and two raps down and towards the approach stairs put your right in a gully near the base of the stairs past the locked stairs gate.

Comments: To TR this route easily, lead Mechanic's Route (5.8 R) and with a single cord you can lower the climber to the base clipping directionals, then belay them up both P1 and P2. Make sure and clip the bolts or risk swinging way around the arete if you "F" the crux. An absolutely amazing climb that I aspire to lead. Interesting moves throughout and the crux isn't too hard in-and-of itself, but coming at the end of the enduro fest is burly. My favorite climb I've (almost) done at Tahquitz.
