Trip Report
Yosemite micro TR, mostly to get the attention of the guys who climbed Lemon!
Sunday May 8, 2011 2:00pm
May 7, 2011 was a beautiful day in the Valley.

The kids were there so there was lots of bouldering.

This photo above is important as you can see the Donini Face on the left.

Shannon made her first trad lead on Jamcrack - looked solid as a rock

And now, the only reason for the micro TR: got some nice shots of a fellow leading Lemon over there by Jamcrack-send me a note via ST you guys and I'll send the rest of the photos.

Of course to end the day there was an ape hanging session. BITD we didn't allow pads for this kind of stuff.

Say man, Lemon looks like fun. Curious, one of the two hangers at the anchor looks gone. The remaining was backed up and equalized to a tree that has since fallen out. Curious, how does one get off? Single bolt?

not *positive* what those folks did, but I think they used the single bolt with a slack backup for the leader to lower off. Then the second took courage in the lack of failure of the single bolt when the leader lowered, cleaned the backup and came down off the single.

Sounds like a good ASCA project to replace the anchor!
This climb is "on my list."
