Well you and I are on the internet. lol That ridge is pretty amazing. We started it on the left side of the north buttress at an obvious short offwidth. Then about 4 pitches later we finally hit the ridge. I'm just curious to find out where the FA party started.

Nope. I'm not the frisbee type. We saw it last week and figured it was someone using it as a water dish for there dog. By the way if you saw that your parking at the wrong spot. lol

Maybe more like dumbasses to believe DR, "...judgment, concentration, boldness - the ordeal by fire, take precedent, as they should, over mere hardware. "

ec,

It's always been my belief that the fewer bolts placed the better. To run it out or not sometimes isn't the question. It's the answer.

Well you park in the parking lot obviously. Follow the obvious trail. Minimal required rack since most routes don't have many more bolts than ec's Fly on a Windshield as I recall.

Never been up there, but every time I drive by - the pink band stands out to me as better rock(?)

There is no trail leading from this trailhead. There is enough stone up there to keep one happy for many life times.

Paging Em of Wyde...

There is an ungodly huge amount of rock up there, ten pitch towers, the works.
Google smokestack. Besides the guides Jerry scanned there is some stuff in the bishop guide, I think.
Have at it, a lifetimes worth of adventure!! If I ever get back to ca I'm headed there right after I get doug to take me around the buttermilk rock course again!

Don't quote me on it, but I think The Great Escape goes free at 5.11 or 5.11-.

There is also a book/3 ring binder at Wilson with all additional routes in the pine creek area. Check it out.
