JMT: Climbers on El Capitan
September 22nd, 2014

El Cap

On my final day in Yosemite, I took the shuttle to El Capitan to see the big wall climbers. The park was hosting an “Ask a Climber (Ranger)” program on El Cap bridge where they set up telescopes for you to watch the climbing parties. I was so stoked for this, I showed up early and stayed for two hours.

Climbing: Saddle Peak

Saddle Peak Routes

Went climbing at Saddle Peak in Malibu today. The routes were were bolted crack systems and face climbing. I liked that a lot because I got to practice my trad placements and sport leading at the same time. I climbed four or so routes, the routes I led felt 5.8 and the routes I tope-roped felt really hard. Without a guidebook, were were just guessing the routes and ratings. I was hope a particularly tough climb was a 5.10a, but Mountain Project said pretty much everything I climbed was 5.8. The best part was that I built and cleaned my first anchor, including the switch to rappel. I can finally be a sport climb leader on my own now.
