What a Spring it's been.

Here's a sort of Photo TR of some things I've been doing lately.
So hard getting good shots while climbing, but here goes...
Sorry for those dialer's -- I know how it goes (or doesn't).

First off we have a forgotten classic. Four or five pitches of 5.9 or .10a climbing, go after it!

Gosh, think I can fit my head in here?

It wouldn't feel like the Valley if it wasn't sorta wide!

Oh gosh, did I say...

On the other side of the valley:

Looking down at the crux pitch, not much action here...

But killer views of the Higher Cats

And the view from the summit of the spire:

Yet another side of Yosemite:

Miles and miles...

And then, back to the Cats!

High up on North Butt:

Then back over to the North Side again...

Dave does one-arms on Royal Crest. He needs no stinkin' bolts (as with the one in the lower right corner):

Does slab climbing get better?

The high country!

Thanks for leaving the names out so we can try to figure out what is what! I'm still wondering about that first one. I thought it might be a Powell, Sacherer, Kamps route. But I haven't done it so I'm guessing.

Here's a nearby route:
