Comments: classic meadows circuit. Bring enough water to last. I recommend 3 liters. There is a lot of ground to cover here and water is life!

Comments: Linking pitches is key. This is a quick send if you link. Alternate start on pitch one was about 10c. Stoked to have a "6" on multiple pitches.

Comments: The mantle after the dyno felt tricky. The crux was definitely the slab moves above the last bolt on pitch 2.

Comments: Hiked to the base of the route the night before. Only found one pre existing bivy spot at the base right under the 4th class ramp to hike up to the actual route. Climbed it the next day. 14 hours to the top, then semi long hike back, about 4 miles if you miss the bus back to curry village, counting the hike off the dome back to the base and then out the mist trail to your car. The happy isles parking was closed when we did it, so you may just park there as well.

Crux of the route for me was fol... more >>

Comments: This climb is awesome. The most valley like climbing I have done in the meadows. Pitch 1 is a bit tricky route finding though a fun roof and into a wide section. The 2nd pitch is burly awesome, and the 3rd is just straight up mean 5.7. This is one of the most beautiful rock formations to look up at from the base.

This is a majorly overlooked climb in the meadows and if you are looking to climb hard valley pitches, this is grea... more >>

Comments: Seems that in the last year someone has replaced the old style hangers on this route, and added a new fixed chain draw above the first roof with a fancy fixe beaner on it. Anyone know who is to thank for this upgrade?

I have to admit I am saddened the old school hangers were stripped off the route that gave it some more of that rich east side character. The addition of the fixed chain makes cleaning to route much easier, nice addition.

This is one of the top 5 best routes in the gorge. A m... more >>
