Comments: From Dorworth's article:

" Chris Vandiver and I named a route on Lembert Dome in Tuolumne Meadows Truckin' Drive. It is next to the older route Rawl Drive, named after the Rawl drill which was used in the early days of placing bolts by hand (as was done on both routes). Truckin' Drive was named after the Grateful Dead song "Truckin'" and particularly for the famous verse:

Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me;

Other times, I can barely see.

Lately it occurs to me ...

Comments: Summiting the wall via Wind Chill is adventurous and fun, but not as well-travelled as Windfall. As a bonus, you top out on Stanford Point and get to walk down on a signed NPS trail.

Comments: If you rotate it 90 degrees, it actually looks like a normal chimney pitch. Wide, flared, and peggy, yes, but at least it resembles climbing.

Compare to this:.

Comments: Somewhere at the bottom of a crag in Morocco is the wedding ring that was clipped to a locker on my harness. Best to leave these on the ground, methinks.

Comments: We climbed this in May of....2005? Can't recall. It's about a pitch tall. Some free, some aid. Junky overhang down low to a nice crack that tapers to aid placements. We picked what looked like the most likely line and judging from the trundles it was unclimbed, but we found a bolt on the summit so someone found a way up. No special gear needed, I remember a hand-placed KB was about the most exotic. No nails, just the one piece.

I wrote a better description for Eric Bjornstad but this shou... more >>

Comments: Climbed this in February 2012. It's pretty good. We pulled a scary block off under the roof and now the scary is gone. A local told us this is a Steve Goins route, name/date unknown. Recommendable.

Comments: I used to use this as a downclimb to return to the east face, instead of hiking off the endless switchbacks on the trail.

Comments: So about 3/4 of the way up the last [wide var.] pitch there's a horizontal crack out to the right. Plug a 1.5"-2.5" piece in here and clip it a bit short and it should keep the rope from shoving your big cam back in there.

That's my good deed for the day. Off to help old ladies across the street.

Comments: .10a is a bit of a sandbag, esp. compared to the one next door.
