Comments: This route was a good reminder to me that Yosemite 5.8 is different than 5.8 elsewhere. Although, we climbed Nutcracker earlier in the day and struggled much more with this route.

Straight-in hand jam section was pretty short and the wide cracks were tough for me as a yosemite neophyte.

Comments: Visited in Feb this year and ticked off Frosty Cone, a fun moderate.

Would have liked to hop on the others nearby but, just as we were finishing up this one, a group of 20+ yahoos in bright tights showed up, hauling several guitars up the 4th class scramble. Despite dropping down 4 or 5 topropes, barely any of them ended up climbing, instead amassing at the base of DQ wall. Pretty good way to ruin a peaceful day in nature!

Hopefully my experience was atypical of the area.

Comments: Cool little ledge to chill and toprope on a sunny early season day. Each of the cracks requires slightly different technique. Should be easy enough for new climbers to have a good time.

Echoing above comment that the approach required some 5th class moves. Definitely be ready to rap after setting an anchor, downclimbing the approach would be tricky

Comments: 6'3" and I remember the start taking a couple tries, but I loved this route. My favorite at the Corridor, probably because I'm more of a trad guy


Location: CA : Tahoe Vicinity : Sugarloaf : Sugarloaf, East Face : Scheister (5.7)

Comments: Beautiful weather at Sugarloaf this weekend. Climbed Scheister for the first time and would highly recommend it, as a beginner multipitch leader I had a blast. I'll toprope 10a outdoors and 11a/b in the gym, and this 5.7+ was very manageable for me, with no "oh shit" moments.

We took the tunnel finish, very satisfying topping out through it! I was happy to have extended the BD #4 and 3.5 I placed in the first pitch chimney, as mentioned above.
