A selection of photos from the route. The distance shots are from local yosemite badass Tom Evans.

Sorting gear.

That open gate is no big deal.

Justin gets in done on P1, long pitch.

P2, team hauling.

All smiles, all day.

Start of the 3rd pitch, sporty heads for A2 I thought.

More P3 action.

Great rock, great photo.

Tipped out beaks on the Badlands, P5.

Looking up at the 5.10R section on P6.

Seth styles P6 like it should be done.

Only 1 fixed head for pro for a quite a ways off the belay.

A Korean team above.

Bonus photo, Shield headwall.

Bay of Pigs, P7.

One of the crux pitches, some sketchy loose hooking on P9.

P9 belay, getting ready for another.

El Cap salute, lazer cut cracks on P10.

Fly or Die!

Bonus photo, friends on Tribal Rite, taken from the NA wall.

Pigs in space.

FoD P11 from Tom.

T-rex, jugging after taking a 200' swing off the lower anchor!

Place of Dead Roads, P12.

Joining ZM for another excellent pitch, P13.

Lost in America joins Zenyatta Mondatta.

Summit Cobras!

Parting shot.

Cheers BriGuy.

some nice pix.

free climbing out of aid sh#t is always so grim. the movements are so different, even out of a belay i always hated it.

What a superb route is L in A - excellent job with the photos, mixing 'em up from Tom and from the wall.

I was on Virginia while those Korean guys were above you, and man oh man, were they "fighting for their lives"! They had about a ten- or twelve-foot cheat stick that they were using rather frequently.

I saw them go up and down, up and down, easily at least half a dozen times on the crux "free climbing" pitch, which I hooked when I soloed the route.

Great send, mates! The summit King Cobra shot is my favourite, for sure!

Thanks dude!! What a great TR. Not sure if anyone noted above but this is just one of a few killer routes Brian did on the cap'n this spring. Cheers Briguy.


edit: The fly or die pitch looks way cool. The inverted wave thing and the color of the rock up and right, wow!

Awesome send. Thanks for sharing. Always wanted to do that one. Is Fly or Die completely fixed by now?

Back in the day in C4, I remember someone asking Xavier Bongard what he did on the free section when he did the first solo. He just looked at the guy like he didn't understand the question and finally said, "I used a hook!"
