HighTraverse-That's my favorite spot in CRSP. It feels like it's gotten a lot less obscure over just the three years I've known about it. It's still not as big a party as, say, Indian Rock, but I've met other climbers there almost every time I've gone for the last year, compared to the first year we went there we exclusively had it to ourselves.

We were the only climbers. A few hikers showed up from Goat Rock. We approached from the lower trail. What's that rock called?

Mount Doom. Love the view looking down the canyon. I like to take first time climbers there because it's a cruise up the long face, but it has such great exposure, and they can make it almost all the way to the top before they get stymied by the crux high step.

Yeah, the high step was good. Not very hard if you're patient. To make it more interesting we ascended the arete on the left to get up to the step. We also started from the very base which also had some good moves.

If you talk to the big Pacific Islander looking guy I run into sometimes (not Timo), he says they used to call that rock something else.

If you go into the cave start, to the right-side of the face you're talking about, there's a bolted 5.10. Crux at the exit moves.

Also, on the opposite side of the face you did there's a 5.10b that is pretty challenging. Be careful halfway up. There's a 2' x 1' block that is good hands, but is loose.

Good location that place. Nice views. Never anybody there.

My cousin and I went Castle Rock this morning for a very efficient half-day of climbing. We hit Cal Ridge and (I think) Platypus Rock, did 5 climbs each (well, 4 1/2: Ayatollah had us both stymied), and were back home again by 12:30. The weather was gorgeous, the mosquitoes only slightly horrible, and we beat the Memorial Weekend mania.

started a new Grgund up project today. I have rapped the line and done some trundeling last year but the 75ft under the roof was completly virgin as when you rap by you are 15ft out from the wall. Got six bolts in and did a bunch of trundels on lead. Isa was a great sport and held the gri gri while I thrashed arround up there.... Going to be a seriously wild climb!

I've wanted to climb Wild Kingdom at Moore's Wall for about 20 years. Today I redpointed both pitches.

Decided to give the shadowed off width in the corner a go?


I don't know the first thing about it. I doubt I can do it, frankly.


Past the first crux :)


Past the 2nd crux, route is in the bag.


Very good chance its a first ascent, if so its name is

Do The Twist, 5.8-ish


Its a good route actually, worth naming and doing again.

Love this thread.

Been sick three days. 101 fever, sore throat, sinus infection, barely getting out of bed. Went to bed at 5pm friday, got up at 9am saturday. Sort of. Goddam daycare!
Today I'm going... metal detecting. For an hour. Maybe. Was supposed to be out climbing at Dinosaur Rock today with a noob. Ain't no way in hell.

Nothing yet but hope to today. Very little climbing for the last two months due to bad shoulder. Pouring rain right now though.
