I'm looking for any beta on Some obscure valley routes.
Gobi Wall & Flashback on Sentinal
Electric Ladyland on the Column
Dante's Inferno on the falls wall

Loose rock? Bivi ledges? Gear? Anything?

Thanks
Ben

If I were you I would stay away from anything on the falls wall. That whole area Has been having serious rock fall problems over the past couple of years.
I believe Alex Huber freed Electric ladyland in the summer of 2002.

I remember some people saying that Dantes was an ok climb. I think it was Eric Sloan. I think he did a repeat of it.

I ripped a long string of heads and came within inches of cratering on a ledge on Electric Ladyland. I retreated later. I wasn't impressed with the quality of either the climbing or the stone. I'm not going back.

Dante's is not worth doing. Flamer is right. Because of the water, the wall sheds a lot of rock. It's sketchy up there. The hike sucks too.


Hey. Everything got really small. I need my hand-lens. My eyeballs are starting to hurt. Ug.

The scroll below is cool though (on post page).

How about lising the original subject title on the 'reply to/enter post' page?

Date? Time? Where did Pete's profile go?

Ok how about longer semi- obscure routes, Son of heart, Never Never Land?

Happy Nailing
