The Half Dome thread got me thinking about how I would really like
to see some pics of some of those seldom or lesser done wall routes..
We see alot of El Cap shots .. Got any of the seldom seen ? Half Dome ,
Watkins , Quarter Dome , maybe W.F. Sentinel ?

Love to see 'em !


I need to get my shiite together n scan some slides

See what photos do for a thread?

That's some tremendously radical attitude, too. What approach march?

You know Fitschen and Pratt went to climb Angel Wings and left without touching it. They vastly underestimated its height and took far too little gear, so they just bagged it and left, never to come back...

Andy Cox died on the walk in to Tehipite in '72.

Probably would be more popular if it weren't for all that damn water. Has had maybe 4 or 5 ascents since 1971.

a wall this next season and it's gonna be off the beaten path, with
a remote vibe to it.

Only a few hundred feet tall, but it's up in the sky and obscure with a capital O, so it's here...

EC's pics (and the rest) almost make me want to learn to climb walls. Almost. The grade V and VI routes on this guy don't get climbed much either. Took this pic yesterday.
