Steck-Salathe

Jun 19th 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 6:28 pm

The plan was to do it in a day.

We left the apartment at 4:30am on Tuesday and got back at 3:00pm on Wednesday.

From the route description on Mountain Project:

The Steck-Salathe truly deserves its status as one of the “Fifty Classic Climbs of North America”. Everything from the climbing itself to the many stories of adventure had on the north face of the Sentinel makes this climb a must-do for any aspiring Valley climber — if not a route to be repeated again and again, it certainly should at least be seen as a rite of passage. The climb’s reputation for being long, wide, and physical is well deserved, but the quality of that climbing, the position one achieves, and the overall sense of adventure the route offers should not be understated.

Big ups to my roommate and friend Stewart Williams for being such a baller.

El Capitan

Jun 2nd 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 7:09 am

The first day of my life climbing on El Capitan. Perfect weather. Thrutched my way up the first two pitches of Zodiac by myself.

Featuring maneuvers such as cam hooking, a horizontal roof section, many many offset cam placements, and even a bit of free climbing!
