PegLeg I, II
|310 page views|
To the right of Stalemate is a roof, corner system. Climb the flat face right of the Stalemate corner up to the roofs. Exit left or right for I and II. Or a bit lower down, head out right on a diagonaling system that leads to a steeper exit on a clean face (that's 5.9-5.10 ground and is actually Wanderlust, which can be climbed with a direct start). The two Pegleg exits are in the 5.8 or so range.
As I recall, some pretty fun climbing on some clean rock.
This is just left of Crack N Up, around the arete.

I did these two routes again when passing through there in mid march and was surprised at how fun the two exits were. Going left is a bit harder and more committing but pretty cool. Bit wandering/veggie at the bottom but it gets cleaner.
Looks to me like the roof in between the two exits would go and be a bit wild.

In the Karabin fold out, it looks like Pegleg 1 and 2 are a bit different from this picture (the Karabin guide shows Pegleg 1 going up and cutting right beneath nickel slot and Pegleg 2 going where this picture shows Pegleg 1 going... I guess I should trust the first ascentionist, but any idea on the discrepancy?

Had never been on this one, and I think it's great fun! I exited the roof to the left, and thought those moves were tenuous for a moment or two. Good times!
