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.

Comments: Good choice if you show up early and climbing in the sun is too hot.
Also rarely crowded.

Comments: The climbing on this route is extremely straightforward; in this, it is indeed suitable for the n00b. The logistics are another thing entirely, which is what sent the 3 guys from Wisconsin home with their laminated topos between their legs when we were up there.

The approach is burly and you might need a rest day by the time you get done with it. Water is a hassle unless you arrive while the little trickle at the base of the LA Chimney is flowing- springtime/post-rain only. Humping ... more >>

Comments: The first pitch is the Yin, and the second the Yang.

I've only climbed the first. It's quite sustained and slick, pretty unrelenting really. Clean your shoes off before hopping on this one.

Comments: FYI from the Closed Course entry:

Further up this corridor one encounters a wavy, podded R-facing flake which we climbed for 100' or so. This has recently sprouted a lower set of anchors (right where it gets wide, funny) and a plaque: "Renegades of Funk, 5.10". Owing to the wing-like look of the feature, we had considered "Bernoulli Effect" as a name, but it was getting late to be sitting around carving on rocks.

Comments: "By today's standards"

I love it. By this do we mean 'don't put the time in to learn a technique, and then complain about the grade?'

Kids today, grumble, sniff.


The supertopo has way too much detail on the start of this route, and yet fails to include the myriad of variations on the topout. I think this is kinda cool, since it gives folks a reason to go and climb the route again and have a different experience.
The traditional onsight topout entails a lot of yelling back and forth a... more >>

Comments: Bring a 70, and jugs. Link 1 & 2, then leave jugs/aiders at the p2 anchor. Pick them up when you rap. The hanging belay is a crippler!

Comments: There's a thin, thin crack, and just to the right of that a few feet is Ed's route, which looks a bit more like 2 thin cracks. I have not been on this one but am told that it takes gear and is in the .11+ range.
