Yosemite Valley Half Dome Southwest Face
5.7 Snake Dike

For three little Aussies it was a terrifying, exhilarating, life-sucking, life-affirming mega moonwalk. Our accents must've scared away the crowds, for the serenity was simply serene. After an epic summit sunset we knew we'd earned those famous Half Dome beers

Yosemite Valley El Capitan Southeast Base Area
5.4 The Footstool, Right

Its classic if you make it classic, and besides, now you can say 'I've climbed El Cap!" According to tradition, I took enough gear to climb El Cap, and decided to place as many different pieces as possible: various cams from #0.1 to #5 (including Metolius, WC and BD), a tricam, an offset cam, an offset nut, a regular nut, a small hex and a sling. Sad to say I couldn't find a spot for the big bro. The summit was enjoyed with Jared the soft toy squirrel and a hot cuppa

5.4 Regular Route

A clasically scungy, weird and alright in some parts lower grade climb. Last pitch is a runout slab so nothing unusual there. Descent felt long and tedious. Maybe it was too hot, or maybe you're better off climbing just about anything else in the valley

5.6 5.6 III Southeast Buttress

A true cathedral of a mountain. A really wild climb surrounded by lakes, meadows and forests dotted with snow drifts, and dwarfs even Half Dome in the distance. Dead quiet at 8am, though got crowded later (happy birthday to those 4 guys). Don't underestimate the marmots, hang everything (we saw them chewing on a trekking pole)!

5.9 C4 5.9 A3+ VI The Shield

Muir to the shield, rope solo aid faff sloth style. Clean (definately not hammerless). Wild.

Rack brought for Muir->Shield (clean) June 2022

Hooks: -2*talons (only used 1) -1*cliffhanger (only used 1) -2*Narrow cam hooks (only used 1) -1*micro, wide (not used)

Pitons: -15 #3 peckers or equiv staight tomahawks (wouldn't have minded having 20, MVPs on the headwall) -2* #1 peckers -2 * #2 peckers -2 random size sawed angles (old booty, size unknown), would have been good to have a full set to use skeleton key style. Useful but probably not essential, only used twice, more #3 beaks likely more useful -Wall hammer -Mini hammer for nut cleaning on clean pitches -Funkness device (used for cleaning a few unnesessary fixed beaks) -Few random heads -No LAs

Nuts: -1 set standard micro nuts (barely used) -2-3 sets offset brass nuts (clutch) -1 set peanuts (completely unused - would not bring) -About 1kg of offset alloy nuts - very helpful esp gold/blue

Cams: -2*set of offset X4s (clutch, despite copping a lot of slack for the harder alloy found them pretty bomber in weird grooves within the SA scars) -1*Aliens black-green (didn't use much) -Triple totems set from black - grey (0.4 equiv), and mix totems/C4s triples to #3, double #4, double #5 (big gear most useful for the muir section, probably a bit over the top)

Misc: -3-4 large Wire rivet hangers (never used) -> some of the micro/piano wire size wire rivet hangers may have been useful instead of 3mm nylon -Few meters of 3mm nylon cord (useful for a few of the old RURPs -Few meters of ?11/16th webbing for fixed gear -Few leaver biners (bootied a few, used a few) -Sharp knife for cleaning off some tat, honestly in some spots I wish I had a narrow head locking pliers for getting some mank tat off. -Didn't bring an adjustable spanner - many, many of the quicklinks and hangers were loooose (At least on the muir pitches).

Crux aid pitches went clean as previous party placed a mashie at the bottom of the groove, without which would have been quite a challenge.

Cleaned a bunch of tat (but theres still a lot that really needs the chop), and a few beaks from the headwall pitches that were taking up nice beak scars that should go fine hand placed.
