We were just up there yesterday. Great route - so cool back there in Tenaya Canyon. Route was super wet from the last storm though - running water on pitches 2-10, so much so that we had to pioneer some new pitches. Clearly an FA, which we're calling "Why Are All My Favorite Things Wet?"

Couple of pics:

pitch 8 or so, notice small creeks..

Came hunting for this thread trying to find a specific photo that I remembered of Zander's. Still the best single picture I've seen on ST, and there have been many many great ones.



Cheers, Zander!

Hey le_bruce, What a day that was! Everytime I turned around it was another beautiful shot. Sometimes the mountain finds you worthy.
If you want the original file let me know.
Cheers,

What a great thread.

I've bivied with friends and fungus on top of CR in a snowstorm, in August, good times.

Tenaya Canyon is a really special place, rugged and undisturbed.



Fungus amongus.

Has anybody climbed My Favorite Things last year?

Curious about the route.

I climbed the route last fall. The first bolt on pitch three which is usually wet cannot be clipped with a biner but a nut slides through the hanger. The bolt is good. The bolt is a five piece and if you bring a hanger your second can replace it . The second pitch was also wet but we were able to climb through it ( not trivial). Pitch 8 was also wet which we were able to climb acrosss. We did this in October so climbing in early summer the route would be a waterfall. The rest of the route is in good shape, rockfall was off to the right. That approach and canyon are awesome just to hike. Have fun!
