First moon over Indian Creek

Average Rating = 3.78/5 First moon over Indian Creek

I took this photo after cliimbing at the Fin wall, in the parking lot. The moon is rising for the first time of our stay on the other side of the canyon. I plopped my camera on top of my helmet to shoot that long exposure shot. I'm glad one of my attempts came out sharp enough to enjoy.

Orange Alien Dimple

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Orange Alien Dimple

This photo shows the recalled orange alien with the stamped dimple that identifies it, as well as the stem braze/welding that looks somewhat less fluid than on the other stems.

Orange and Green Aliens with dimples

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Orange and Green Aliens with dimples

The orange Alien definitively has the dimple that marks the recall. The green one has a dimple too, but very light so it is not clear if it is part of the recall... The soldering/brazing looks better than on the orange one.

Do you need beta?

Average Rating = 1.00/5 Do you need beta?

After leading this climb, Mani gives it a 2nd run on TR to see if it was as hard as it felt on lead... it was :) He gets some beta from Kole on where to smear.

Finger push-up

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Finger push-up

The joy of slabs lies in trusting your feet to carry all your weight, and whatever's left can translate into fingertips push-ups. Many like Mani plain hate the pain of slab strains.

Concentration is the key

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Concentration is the key

Matt is our Peter Pan, he's all grown up but has the golden heart of a child... the immaturity of a child, and obviously, when he concentrates, the mimmics of a child (he doesn't concentrate very often, also like a child).

Suck your gutt

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Suck your gutt

Mani going through the (yawn! 5.6) squeezy crux of this not so interresting climb (unfortunaely we didn't try the 5.9 crack variation). The 2nd pitch is good for a beginner trad leader to place gear as it is a series of ledges that are close to 4th class. The walkoff is scarier than that pitch... Next to it is crying times again, a much more thrilling experience. Mostly bolted.

4th class approach to the Third Pilar of Dana

Average Rating = 3.00/5 4th class approach to the Third Pilar of Dana

Kole looking a 1000ft down at the 3rd pilar of Dana approach on a big fallen rock exfoliation sticking out of the 3rd pilar, after we climbed it. There's no photo of the approach, which is another 20min of scrambling after the 2H hike, on a steep arete down to the base of the pilar, so here it is. The route I sketched may not be exact, but it sure is a place where you don't want to slip on dirt.

5.9R variation

Average Rating = 0.00/5 5.9R variation

Kole's looking at the follower of a party that passed us via the 5.9 crack variation on the 3rd pitch (depends how you count) which seems to have a thin R section at the base, where another girl got her 1st air ride. This section has 2 great flakes that seem to hold to the cliff with little support.

3rd pilar of Dana, Last pitch

Average Rating = 3.00/5 3rd pilar of Dana, Last pitch

Kole's following closely the previous party finishing the last pitch of the 3rd pilar of Dana (i believe 5.9+ or 5.10a, 11500ft). All pitches are interresting, but this one has multiple sections with different cruxes, and is the most vertical pitch. Unlike domes, this pilar becomes steeper higher.

Shutdown look

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Shutdown look

Unnamed 5.10a trad route around South Lake Tahoe, CA on the Green Wall. Dan C. is stomped to be shut down on that next corner move that happens to be the crux... Don't worry for him, he'll figure it out and send this short but fun route.

No worries

Average Rating = 3.00/5 No worries

Unnamed 5.10a trad route around South Lake Tahoe, CA on the Green Wall. Nancy follows Dan C. but was oblivious of the crux as much as she is oblivious of all the other cars when she cruises down the lane on the highway. Hunh?! What crux?

The traveller's butt...

Average Rating = 3.33/5 The traveller's butt...

This is an autoportrait, i.e. another take on a butt shot with a twist :) A twist of my torsoe that is. This is the 3rd pitch, past the hainous 5.9 offwidth, to the rewarding airy arete climb. This photo tries to show the exposure you get on that pitch by putting the wall and the climber in perspective.

Flexcam head comparison

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Flexcam head comparison

Comparison of the cam head width for the BD C4 and micro camalots, Metolius blue TCU and Flexcam #1. Seems to trade opening range for narrow head, while having same or more contact surface than .2 MC or blue TCU. From left to right: C4 .4, MC .3, TCU Blue, FC #1, MC .2, MC .1.

All fingers and no feet

Average Rating = 3.12/5 All fingers and no feet

Kole working it on this 5.11 crux with few finger pockets - thin hands for ladies, hainous for beefy construction worker hands, and very bad feet. In the photo, Kole is not smiling, he's straining... Give it a shot after going up the fracture (5.10d)

Rocky ocean

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Rocky ocean

It looks like Kole's swimming in a rocky ocean. At least that's the intent of this photo. The pic doesn't show very well the route features, but I wouldn't want to blow your onsight of this decent warmup route with too much beta :). Constructive criticism welcome.

Monster flakes

Average Rating = 3.45/5 Monster flakes
