Unnamed Crag Above the Egg

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Unnamed Crag Above the Egg

As viewed from the Sail, this crag sits above the Egg, East of the Sail. I believe it has been climbed, but have no info about the routes. Looks like Mexican Crack! There is also a crack on the white face on the right side (south facing) aspect, not visible in photo. A pretty long hike, but it appears possible to reach by climbing/scrambling from the top of the Egg.

Triple O, take 2

Average Rating = 3.27/5 Triple O, take 2

Triple Overhangs, 2005. I've been wanting to repeat this line years, and finally found someone else dumb enough to endure the approach. Photo by belayer Vicente Planelles, who thinks the reward justified the hike.

The 5.6 Mantle

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The 5.6 Mantle

This is the 5.6 mantle cuux on the South Face, assuming you follow the reccommended route. I climbed a short crack just below this that felt 5.7ish, so the rope would run a little straighter.

Mick warming up on Super Crack

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Mick warming up on Super Crack

Mick was the second climber to climb Super Crack that day. The first was a soloist who sent the route in about 2 minutes, so fast that we didn't have time to get a photo.

Doggin on Gorilla

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Doggin on Gorilla

This climb whupped my ass, and I'm not ashamed to admit it, either. Thin hands start, a couple short OW sections, nice hand jams, and some stemming at the finish! If you're bored of vertical splitters where it's the same move over and over... take a turn on The Gorilla.

Coyne Crack, Supercrack for Little Hands

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Coyne Crack, Supercrack for Little Hands

Another shot of Mary on Coyne Crack....when I find out her name, I'll post a comment. She was way burly! Indian Creek, where girls hike 11s, and struggle on 10s, (thanks to their little hands and toes!).

Summit Shot

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Summit Shot

On top of South Six Shooter after climbing the South Face. A nice, relaxing outing after 2 days of getting worked on 5.10 splitters! Some loose/crumbly rock on the route, but a great summit! Short enough you could do this and then the S. Face Direct (5.9) or TR the 5.10 Diagonal Crack at the base.

Granitegod on Touch Up

Average Rating = 3.60/5 Granitegod on Touch Up

Ganitegod on Touch Up, Photo by Peter Gram with permission. How can such a short traverse give you such a pump? A beefy sling tied though the eye of the fixed pin would be nice instead of having to thread it every time!

granitegod on Smitty's

Average Rating = 3.33/5 granitegod on Smitty's

A stimulating lead.....I'd only TR'd this the last several years...out of laziness I guess. Somewhat sustained, with some thin smears and thinner gear. Small but good stoppers, just where you need 'em. Photo by Peter Gram with permission.

Charlie on 3rd pitch K - I

Average Rating = 2.43/5 Charlie on 3rd pitch K - I

Charlie Rawlings with some cord out, studying the crux of the Kor Ingalls, March 94. Intimidating to say the least. We bailed on this attempt. As of 10/03, the crux pitch has 2 bolts, and I found a decent hex placement on a chockstone, making the crux reasonably well protected. The 5.8 chimney above, however, is still quite scintillating.

Charlie on Flakes

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Charlie on Flakes

Charlie Rawlings at grabs the chains on Flakes of Wrath, early 90's. Nice gear spacing, Chuck. Despite increasing numbers of climbers, this and most climbs on Wall Street are holding up nicely, I'm happy to report. After my first wall st climbs over 10 years ago, I still love 'em, though they feel slightly easier now. photo by me

Side View

Average Rating = 2.80/5 Side View

Looks a little more 5.9 from this angle.....Pete Jones, on top rope, early 90's. Top roping is REALLY hurting this route. Rope gooves are eating the crux! If you must TR, Belay from the anchor on top. Rappell off, angling to the right, pull rope from the road. Respect the rock. Photo by unknown bystander with my camera.
