Comments: According to Kip Davis, it looks like they stripped some other routes to get hangers for it. Nice.

Comments: The words missing between the lines in this description are "old" and "school"! Good old-fashioned rock climbing, rarely crowded, and a pretty good way to get your Valley on.

Comments: Thanks, Jason. I have not climbed on the Poe, just the CynPinn and the Sunshine Wall. It is a godawful slog.

Anyhow I'm glad to know that's it for the rave promotion. The whole "my buddies and I party so hard out here with the turkeys and hormones and drugs" thing in a certain other new guidebook kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

Comments: From the sample page:
"...if you really want to climb Poe in style, haul some food and a stereo to the party ledge..."

Is this really what guidebook authors should be encouraging these days? I'm all for having a good time, but there's a lot of us out there these days and we'd do well to consider our impact on other people and the crag environment. Being subjected to other folks' ragin' good times isn't why I hike an hour uphill.

How much more of this kind of thing can we expect from this boo... more >>

The biggest holds you'll ever fall off of?

Comments: This climb reminded me of why we usually seek out the varnish: because sandy rock, iffy gear and iffy jams aren't that much fun.

Comments: That's it in the picture. We started on the left side. I remember thinking I could hit the ground there but no such worries on the hard move up high.

Comments: Dean Halfacre and I were the 'Never On Sunday' team, I think in 1990-something... the old guidebook will have to come out of deep storage to figure this out more exactly. Anybody heard from Dean lately? Anyhow I like the name Mantis best of all, it's a good one for stalking up a long series of mantles. And Capital Assets?...let's leave the money out of this.

Comments: Well worth the walk, but you have to commit to this when you leave the road or else you'll just end up climbing the Sacherer Cracker again.

Comments: Brandon Mack and I climbed this in about 2001 or 2001, and I've done it a couple times since. I remember a kind of sporty move down low, before you get any gear, and then an easy romp to the top where one had to clamber through the dead pine. Jerry always brought great psyche and I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I hope I'm still sixty-one and having fun the way he did- a generous spirit and an inspiration to a lot of folks.

Comments: This is a classic excursion: giant features on a giant cliff, and once you leave the ground it feels like you're halfway up El Cap. Watch for pterodactyls and maybe bring a couple beers up to the Peter Pan ledge at the top.

As long as you're in the neighborhood, don't miss the first two pitches of the West Buttress- maybe the coolest .10a in the Valley.

Comments: There oughta be a law! This picture is the height of irresponsibility and should be taken down. I sure hope that belayer is certified- can't see her card from this angle.
