Does it have to be something I can actually do?

I would climb on Russ's Mom EVERY DAY!

I always need practice with the WIDE!!!!!!!!!!


LOL Classic. There's not a line for that one is there?


Locker, can you remember the name of that line? Drift question: Can you still climb there or is it shut down? I don't climb in socal much...er, at all.

I believe the line you're thinking of is "Being There" after the movie with Peter Sellers et al. That is a nice line.

I would choose either the North Face route on the Rostrum or the Nose on El Capitan. Both of those have great rock, great views & amazing cleavage.

FWIW - I have done the Rostrum 4 times & the Nose 3 times and would climb either again if partners & weather, and crowds were right.

It's hard to pick...there are so many things to consider:

How much of the year is it climbable?
How hard is it? i.e. Will it be too hard for me by next year?
How far away is it?

For moderate, climbable most of the year, nearby, varied, and fun, I'll have to pick the RORP with the asterix that I can start via Stone Groove while I'm still spry (or even just come and go from that pitch if I feel like cragging) and can switch to the 5.5 choss start when I'm too feeble for SG.

So, it's sort of a versatility and sustainability choice instead of an absolute favorite.

Does it have to be something I can actually do?

Well, since we're talking "repeat" then at least at one time you should actually have done it.

The ones I'd really like to repeat I might have got too old/beat for unless somebody else led and I happened to be in good shape. The Rostrum comes to mind

I'll play by the rules. My desert island climb would Pingora. Long, Fun, and what a view north from the summit--this of course includes the bivvy on the descent as the storm gathered in the south..........

Sweet keep em coming! Where's that White Horses climb? Melissa's post cracks me up because when I pose the question to myself so many variables ran through my head just like she listed! Maybe I have commitment problems?

Yuuup. That green and black tape route is a classic. Great TR got my stoke up for some sick road tripping up there.
