Good times Ryan, glad to see you guys rocked the Captain! And in good style, a boiling sun to snow trip!

I wish. That looks like the way to do it for sure. Unfortunately I remain a weenie free climber.

Yeah Matt (and Holly), the run-together beta was nice. I didn't feel like my adventure was spoiled (just me), but maybe I've spent enough time cussing at stuck bags and so forth. Ryan's mileage may vary.

Dave's vast trove of hybrids rendered this thing pretty harmless- thanks man!

Tried to solo that thing and backed off after the 8th pitch.

I still had a bit of ground grip I guess.

Great composition of your photos.

On my to-do list for some time. Maybe when I get layed off....

Nice work boys! Damn Rob, this really brings me back and makes me hungry again! Thanks for the inspiration. This was one of my favorite climbs for so many reasons. Historical significance alone is just awesome. A must do route for anyone in love with El Cap. Thanks for sharing this and let's plan something for the Spring or early Summer?
Cheers my friend,

Thanks for the bump. I'd missed this one.

Nice one, hoots.

Not sure why the NA gets occasionally ragged on. Over the years I've heard a few people say how awful the route is. I think it's fantastic, but what do I know.

not having to spend the night up there was well worth the weight of the ledge.

Good stuff.

We didn't find anything. RR, Yvon, Chuck, and Tom are very neat climbers - tidy.

We brought are own.

Good to hear from you! I thought about you guys a lot on that one..especially luggin' all that iron around. Leave it on the ground, folks!

How about that aluminum hanger stamped YC? Hopefully still on the route as it was in, er, '97?

Anybody get to rap the pitch above the Cyclops Eye? Sup-air!
