If you have a #3 BD you will be happy you brought it up towards the end of route.

Re: Middle Small Wall?? Does it exist??

I was there a couple of months ago. Followed the guidebook exactly as it said and had no problem finding it.

'tis true! I am starting to get my Cincinnati clients to come to the Red to have their family/children's portrait session and have told them to go to RRO for their cabins and fun activities.

You'll place that #3 at the end of the traverse as you start to climb up again. It's more for your second's protection than yours

just spotted a bear...

Ames Tackett and I were getting ready to go hiking with the dogs and spotted a bear at the beginning of Tunnel Ridge Road. Needless to say we decided to go to Miguels and eat instead. Yes, it was big. Scared the shit out of me (but not Ames). When it saw us it ran away. Never even occurred to me to ...

Snowpuppy Did you inform the forest service when you saw the bear tracks or possibly post it somewhere? I remember someone posting seeing bear tracks but thought that was deep in Muir Valley. I sure wish I would have known. I've been on that trail alone many times this past spring during the weekday...

It more than likely happened before she even left the ground. To save time at the top, she probably girth hitched her slings before she started climbing the route. When she went to clip them to the back side of her harness there was enough slack in the sling that she clipped thru the sling and onto ...

I dunno, I was just relaying what the climber who directly responded to the incident told me. He did indeed say that he was climbing and another person was belaying him and went on to say which route he thought the guy was on. He was right around the corner when it happened and this is what he told ...
