Just testing (better late than never) if it works I'll put up a few more!

Nice -- CK, one of my favorites at DC. Yosemite Sam, Door Into Summer and Vapor Lock are all very good too.

Hey Al,
Thanks, you were there and came up with the name. How are you?

Richard, other worthy routes are Honorable Discharge, Gutterball, Bowling For Keeps, and I remember Right Up My Alley being good as well.

Crusher, Thanks for posting the photos, I have done Clark Kent 3-4 times but, not for awhile. Makes me want to go back again. The photos of Sagehen Summit is that on Sagehen Summit proper on the East side toward Benton? I recall doing one or two routes on the East face and don't remember what we called them.

Ken,

The Sagehen Summit "crag" is out the 120 East past where you turn off for Dexter (maybe another ten minutes?) and I'm pretty sure it's past where you see the sign noting the actual "summit". Really beautiful area out there and the views from atop the climb(s) are amazing! The new Mammoth area guide has a bunch of routes listed, mostly they're on the East (right) side of the whole crag, if I remember correctly.

Crusher,

I always thought Hair Raiser Butress was in Granite Basin. I could be wrong my memory is fading.

Sorry Al I can't remember without revisiting the area but, I beleive you are right.

Ken,

I think the whole general area is called Granite Basin, so you are correct! I guess where the climbs are is considered the "Sagehen Summit area". Book is in the car at the moment so I can't look it up. Not to split hairs anyway - it's totally cool out there and I'd love to find time to go back to both places!

Richard,

I am so ashamed, I have tape on my hands. Perhaps it was for protection against the bats.

No, I believe we were recovering from Epidermal Anthrax Ichymosis -- a condition most commonly contracted from contact with barnyard animals. Good thing our clothing covers up most of the bandages.

More than likely from constant contact with leather ski gloves.

Cool photos! The bats are still there, right under that big flake on the wall to the left of the bottom of KC. They were quite vocal.

Found a few more photos. Here is one of Richard Large on some first ascent.


First ascent of Vaporlock.



Grant Hiskes and I checked out Lower Dexter Canyon one day and did these two climbs.





Here is one of Grant on something in North Canyon.

how often do people get out there you think?

Last time I went was two years ago. It could be the best crack crag on the Eastside.

The original post asks if people still climb here- anyone?

Where's cow canyon?

No love for the Dexter canyon thread- perhaps everyone is a grammer stickler turned off by the incorrect use of the possessive in the orginal post.
