Location: CA : Tahoe Vicinity : Sugarloaf : Sugarloaf, East Face : Blue Velvet (5.10c)

Comments: The first pitch is what this climb is known for but there is an awesomely exposed 3rd pitch that leads to the tunnel through om Harding's Chimney. Climb all of Blue Velvet to get there or to bypass the freaking scary 2nd pitch climb Harding's or Scheister.

On the 3rd pitch of those easier routes, after the slab but before the 5.5 gully, look up the improbable looking face and you'll see several bolts heading up the face above you. Well protected at the cruxes but I wouldn't want to fall before... more >>

Comments: Started the 2nd pitch the same as DJ Reyes. No need for insecure runout liebacking with a bad fall; instead get inside the chimney as soon as you can and work your way to the center.

Comments: Just as good, if not better, than many of the overcrowded "classics" on the East Wall.

On a five star system, pitch 1 is four stars, especially if you lead one long pitch to the big ledge. I also used a 70m rope and was able to walk the ledge to build my anchor at the base of the 2nd pitch with about a foot or two of slack left.

For pitch 2, I'd give 2 stars out of five. The gear I used in the offwidth was a #1, a #2, and a #3 metolius nut in that order. I also thought the r... more >>

Comments: IMO more fun and challenging than Dead Man's Rappel. For a harder variation, stay left of the bolt line for the last 10 feet or so.

Comments: Added quick links to the bolt anchor. One of the slings I removed was red on one side and white on the other. Wish I had mussy hooks or I would have added those to the anchor.

Comments: Added quick links to the anchor shared with Cool Hand Luke. One of the slings I removed was red on one side and white on the other. Yikes! If I had mussy hooks I would have thrown those on.

Comments: Added quick links to the second pitch bolt anchor shared with Africa Flake, so now need to leave gear or trust the faded slings. If I had mussy hooks I would have thrown those on.

Comments: Fun non-commiting climbing (except Jane Spy) on great clean rock in a beautiful setting with spectacular views of Meiss Country. Not sure why it took me so long to finally climb here. I felt the approach was easier than Sugarloaf, though it does get hot in the middle of the summer here.

Comments: Fun climb with two distinct cruxes: the crack and where the face steepens at the third bolt. Great climbing in a great position!

Comments: You could probably throw in a small cam just before 2nd bolt and a larger cam between the 3rd and 4th bolts. Disagree with SuperTopo that this is a good beginning lead climb. The consequence of a fall in the wrong place is too high. I'd say Beer and a Hot Dog, Two Bucks makes a better beginner lead or Hey Y'all, Watch This.

Comments: This climb is short but very fun between the first and last bolts.

Comments: A fun way to start is to stem off the rock that this climb is on with the rock to the right. Makes the start probably 5.8ish.

Comments: For Alabama Hills the start past the first several bolts is 10a then the upper face is probably 5.8 or easy 5.9. Fun climb. At J-Tree or Tahquitz would probably be 5.9 or even 5.8.

Comments: The wind was whipping when we were there; thought I was going to get blown off pitch 4! Did the first five pitches with one rope and I feel its a good climb but not as good as I was expecting, mainly because of the first 3 pitches, which seemed to alternate between fun corner and uninspiring flared gully. On a five star system I'd give the route 3 stars: 2 stars for the first 3 pitches and 4 stars for pitches 4 and 5. Overall, not what I'd call a great climb, but it is worth doing.

Comments: Climb through the chains and finish with the upper orange block of Skyline Pinnacle. May want a #3 camalot to protect the move getting to the 1st bolt on the block. Because of the blocky nature its easy to bust an ankle. Saw a guy today who hurt his ankle on this climb.

Comments: Not sure why everyone loves this climb. Its not that good of a climb especially considering tha it is right next to the far superior "As the Crow Flies." Just say "no" to climbs that aren't much fun.

Comments: A funish TR but a stoopid lead. Definite ground fall potential for such a mediocre climb. Some loose blocks at start.
