5.6 *** The Grack, Center Route Very Good Trad 120m Yosemite National Park Stephen Eisenhauer
Sat 9th Aug '14

Fun first trad experience! Plan on not waiting around at the top for a long time if you don't want to bake in the sun.

5.6 ** Northwest Books Very Good Unknown 110m Yosemite National Park
Sat 19th Jul '14

Ascent with the kids ending in retreat due to the heavens opening as Sue started up the 2nd pitch. A couple of cold, wet hours later we were all safely back on the ground.

1st pitch was both easier & better than I remembered from last time (11 years earlier), despite carrying 100lbs of crap for the kids.

5.8 ** Northwest Books Good Unknown 110m Yosemite National Park
2003

First pitch is nice & cruisy. Did the 5.8 variant 2nd pitch, which wasn't very pleasant.

5.10a *** Central Pillar of Frenzy Very Good Trad 170m Yosemite National Park
2003

First pitch is utter garbage, but the 2nd is spectacular. Bailed after that due to dangerous Basque duo who were super sketchy.

5.9 *** Regular (Southwest Face) Route Classic Trad 130m Yosemite National Park
2003

Spectacular exposure, particularly if you head all the way out to the valley side of the pinnacle for the final pitch.

5.7 * Unnamed Face Good Top rope 9m Yosemite National Park
2011

Hard when it's 100F and the rock is too hot to touch!

5.6 Swan Slab Gully Good Trad 98m Yosemite National Park
2012

Toproping with the kids.

5.7 Penelope's Problem Very Good Trad 18m Yosemite National Park
2012

Polished and slippery down low.

5.10c * Unnamed Seam Good Top rope 24m Yosemite National Park

5.9 Grant's Crack Good Trad 24m Yosemite National Park

Nice!

5.1 * Bobcat Crack Good Trad 15m Yosemite National Park
2012

Soloed up to set a top rope - didn't realise you can walk up from the left!

5.6 West Slabs Good Top rope 15m Yosemite National Park
2012

Toproping with the kids.

5.5 Swan Slab Chimney Average Trad 30m Yosemite National Park
2011

Basically soloed it (put one cam in just below the anchors) to set a top rope.

5.9 ** Jamcrack Route Very Good Trad 53m Yosemite National Park
2003

Led the 2nd (crux) pitch in the dark without a headtorch, due to a slow party in front of us. Made for an interesting, if slightly unnerving experience.

5.9 *** Commitment Classic Trad 100m Yosemite National Park
2002

Awesome!

5.8 ** Selaginella Classic Trad 170m Yosemite National Park
2003

Incredible 1st and 4th pitches, and the intermediate pitches, while nothing special, are pleasant enough.

5.8 *** Bishop's Terrace Very Good Trad 55m Yosemite National Park Jakob Kapelj
Tue 17th Jun '14

Didn't realise there was a gear anchor mid way, so did the whole 2 pitches on a single rack.... spice...

5.8 ** Church Bowl Lieback Very Good Trad 37m Yosemite National Park Jakob Kapelj
Tue 17th Jun '14

Quite a heady crux for a 5.8, maybe because of the lie back...

5.8 ** Ejesta Very Good Unknown Yosemite National Park Jakob Kapelj

Beautiful upper pitch.

5.10c *** Lunatic Fringe Mega Classic Trad 43m Yosemite National Park Jakob Kapelj

5.9 C2 *** The Nose Mega Classic Aid 880m Yosemite National Park Jakob Kapelj
Tue 17th Jun '14

Day 1, fixed to Sickle. Day 2 - Sickle to Stoveleg Crack. Day 3 - Stove to the top of the Boot. Day 4 - Bivied beside the Great Roof (Hans Floring passed us by!!!). Day 5 - started climbing at 3am and topped out at 11pm. Day 6, the 10 hour death march down the Yosemite Falls Trail. What an awesome climb, a year and a half of preparation for this to be my first big wall!

Great slab route. I'd love to lead this someday.

5.7 * After Six (After Six P1) Good Trad 180m Yosemite National Park Sam Ritchie
Sat 17th Nov '12

Great little pitch. We toproped a 10b slab route afterward.

5.10b * Ahab Classic Trad 47m Yosemite National Park Sam Ritchie
Mon 2nd Dec '13

GOD this thing was rough. We top roped it after I climbed Moby Dick. I could barely move in the offwidth piece.

So awesome.

5.8 *** South Crack Classic Unknown 150m Yosemite National Park
2002

First climb in Tuolumne. The unprotected slab pitch at the top was a bit of an eye opener!

5.8 ** The Boltway Good Mixed 16 Yosemite National Park
2010

1st pitch only - linked into West Country after that.

5.5 ** West Country Very Good Mixed 120m, 3 Yosemite National Park
Wed 8th Jan '14

Top pitch only - linked from the Boltway. Awesome position!

5.4 * Hermaphrodite Flake Don't Bother Trad 61m Yosemite National Park
2009

Went the tunnel route - as expected it was a novelty, but not particularly enjoyable. The sides of the flake look more enjoyable.

5.8 Alimony Cracks Good Trad 49m Yosemite National Park
2004

Pleasant enough.

5.10a ** Great Cicle Unknown Yosemite National Park
2004

Tenuous slabbing on and between glacial polish.

5.9 *** West Crack Classic Trad 210m Yosemite National Park
2002

First two pitches are tricky, then it eases off though remaining very enjoyable.

5.7 *** Hobbit Book Very Good Unknown 200m Yosemite National Park
2010

Nice climbing, though exceptionally runout on the face pitch - could be quite dangerous if you're short and have trouble reaching between the patina shields.

5.5 *** Northwest Buttress Mega Classic Unknown 400m Yosemite National Park
2005

Gorgeous. Soloed the first half (to the prominent "balancing table" rock), then simulclimbed the rest in 3 blocks.

5.7 *** Southeast Buttress Mega Classic Alpine 220m Yosemite National Park
2011

Very crowded, but great climbing. We did some variant pitches to the left of the original line, avoiding the chimney pitch (which had turned into a massive bottleneck). Skipped the summit block due to a long queue.

5.6 *** West Ridge Mega Classic Trad 600m Yosemite National Park
2008

Absolutely awesome. We started at the very base of the ridge (we'd camped at Young Lakes the night before), and the first couple of pitches were the crux. After that we simulclimbed in about 3 blocks to the top and were greeted by a thunderstorm. :-(

5.8 ** Little John, Right Average Trad 79m Yosemite National Park
2002

I may have been having a bad day, but this is the hardest & most dangerous thing I've climbed in the valley. The initial laybacking section is slippery, desperate and badly protected by two manky pitons.

5.8 ** Harry Daley Good Trad 70m Yosemite National Park
2004

Very pleasant, if a little worn.

5.9 ** Super Slab Very Good Unknown 150m Yosemite National Park
2003

A bit grotty down low, but very pleasant up higher. The crux is short, secure (bomber crack) and well protected.

5.10c Jacob's Ladder Average Mixed 27m, 4 Yosemite National Park
May 2002

Slippery! Absolutely desperate to clip the anchors.

5.8 *** Bishop's Terrace Classic Trad 55m Yosemite National Park
May 2002

First climb & first lead in the valley. An awesome introduction!

5.10a * Pole Position Good Sport 40m, 8 Yosemite National Park
May 2002

2nd lead in the valley. A stiff introduction to granite slabs. ;-)

5.8 ** Church Bowl Lieback Good Trad 37m Yosemite National Park
2004

Pleasant, with a slippery crux.

5.7 A0 *** Royal Arches Route Good Trad 430m Yosemite National Park
Nov 2004

Did the 5.7 crack variant start, to the right of the original chimney. Some nice climbing here & there, and wonderful positions and exposure, but overall the climbing is too discontinuous to be a classic.

Was intending to free the penji, but it looked like exactly the kind of climbing I dislike (water polished slab), so we did the penji instead.

5.9 *** Nutcracker Right Start Mega Classic Trad 61m Yosemite National Park
2003

First pitch is the crux, by far. Dubious gear to get started in the crack, then polished and sustained crack craft for another 30' or so (with increasingly good gear).

5.10a *** Moby Dick, Center Trad 58m Yosemite National Park Jenna
Sat 8th Jun '13

Too wide for my forearms at the top. I need to beef up before I reattempt this one.

5.9 *** Regular Route Trad 300m Yosemite National Park Jenna
Mon 2nd Dec '13

Got smoked out halfway up by the Rim Fire which drifted all the way to us. Decided to continue up and top out. Hazy and ominous early sunset that day.

5.5 *** Northwest Buttress Unknown 400m Yosemite National Park Jenna
Sat 26th Oct '13

Icy moves made this a sketchy simul climb in October. Ate up more of our day then planned so we had to bail on the Tenaya Triple and come off of Mathes Crest after the 2nd peak.

5.6 *** Southeast Buttress Alpine 220m Yosemite National Park Jenna
Sat 9th Jul '11

My first trad route. Bad epic on a moonless night but came out stronger and with a great story which is too long for this comment box :)

5.10c *** East Buttress Very Good Trad 340m Yosemite National Park Jenna
Mon 2nd Dec '13

Had a tough time locating the catwalk decent, lost an iPhone at the summit and did not bring enough water for a summer-in-the-valley day. Otherwise, an amazing climb!
