I'm working on a little website for Sequoia and Kings Canyon Nation Park (SEKI). Still have a LONG way to go but it's public now so I may as well share. I've started with small random stuff for practice but I hope to have the big complicated crags like Moro and Chimney Rocks up before the summer climbing season. I'll continue updating with my files of info as I have time, it just takes work to get it ready for viewing.

Any input is appreciated!

Oh, and if you're interested in this area you should also check out the long running blog of Rene' Ardesch at http://southernsierraclimber.blogspot.com/ and the newly revived website by EC Joe at http://www.vertical20.com/ This place wouldn't be what it is without those guys!

Thanks,

Being that your TRs are so epic this really catches my attention. I do believe I will get some use from these this year. Cheers!

Thanks for the site. I have a bit of info, unrecorded routes, topos and such that this site will encourage me to get to you.

Thanks everyone!

That would be awesome Tork, you can get ahold of me through the site or here if you don't still have my email. I'm hoping the site encourages people to contribute and fill in the history.
Edit: sometimes PMs on here don't go through, so I've heard

I noticed it looks a bit weird on my phone because I draw things to fill a page when printed from PDF so it's tiny on here. EC gave me some helpful tips so I'm messing with it.

I sent a PM, I am trying, it will be slow. This site and stuff on MP are spurring me on though. I've got a few things to add around Tokopah. I am Jealous of all those routes on the Tokopah Domes. Living in Lodgepole for several summers often unable to find partners, especially for first ascents with longish approaches, I often hiked around drooling over the possibilities up there. Made it to those Domes several times just scouting out lines. I remember that detached pillar, #7 on your topo, looked really cool.

Limping.... Very nice... so do you know if anything is on the big limestone wall that is right next to the top of the big switchbacks below Moro? I have looked at it with binos and wondered. I always figured that LOCALS would someday tackle it.

Guy, thanks for the tip about Little Baldy on MP, I'll try to straighten that history out.

About the marble in the Marble Fork canyon up there, it scares me! I've been all over both sides of that canyon looking for caves (so far there are about 25 and I've discovered and named 8 of them!) and that stuff is pretty hit or miss. There are short sections that could have fun sport routes, but overall it's pretty loose and kinda freaky to scramble on. Also, a lot of it is really sharp and grainy with big crystals.

Terrific resource. If I can tear myself away from the Needles and/or expand my limited climbing time, I'll check the stuff out.

Thread drift, kind of, but since someone mentioned marble, anyone done the Matterhunk?

Any update on the North Dome rock slide that wiped out several routes?

I'd be curious how those will be restored, if at all.

Fat Dad, I haven't but I've been up around it and it's smaller grained and overall seems more solid. Looks like a fun adventure route and EC said it was pretty good.

Munge, don't know the details about the exact damage. Too scared to climb up and see what's wiped off!

Bump for the addition of the west face of Moro Rock. First draft at least. That was a pain in the butt!
