Rosco, A fine animal.

In 2004 Erica Kutcher and myself climbed Sharks Fin, Standing Rock, and Meemohive in a day. The next day we planned to do 4-5 Dabneyland towers "since they are so short". Instead, we only climbed two of them, Captain Pugwash and Captain Birds Eye. They were definitely more demanding than the towers we climbed in Monument Basin, and after those two, I was worked mentally. In my notes I have "This is the Plaice" on Captain Birds Eye rated 5.10c S. I think I remember a scary traverse with bad or no gear near the top, and then a difficult and tricky move to get onto the summit. I remember the first pitch of Meemohive to be pretty chossy though. Probably similar chossiness between the two.
