Kinda describes Pinnacles as a whole now doesn't it?  Wink

touché

Here is one more of clink committed to the headwall. Look carefully and you can see the last bolt way down and left.
He still has several thoughtful moves to gain the next stance up on that slanting ledge. More flavor to savor. Ihih Yes Nod Yikes

The Walking Mud became a reality this weekend. It is a totally separate climb from Mud Diamond and allows you to access the highest point on Crud and Mud. Too bad the terrain isn't steeper because the rock is nice.

The Walking Mud - 4th Class
For experienced Mudders, this climb will probably feel like a walk in the park. For the inexperienced, it may be a horror show. The route follows an obvious line left of a rounded arête. From the Mud Diamond anchor, climb up and veer left into the mossy water chute. There is one bolt about 15 feet out from the anchor that cannot be seen. From the bolt, a series of small scoops leads straight up and over a lip (25 feet). Large knobs can be slung if desired. Once above the lip, the angle eases considerably. Continue another 75 feet up a very low angle slab to the true summit of Crud and Mud (115 feet from the start). There is no summit anchor for this route but there is excellent body position. To descend, make a short downclimb off the summit block to the East Side 5.2 R anchor. FA Party: John Cook, Kathy Cook. FA Date: October 22, 2017

Of course you can also Fear the Walking Mud and rappel from the Mud Diamond anchor  Laugh Out Loud
P.S. Remember - zombies can't climb  No No No Out Prrr

Had fun yesterday finishing a route with Brad that he started on Sunday with Jennifer Wang.
While drilling what would be the last lead bolt, Brad realized the top was close but also realized he had not redpointed the route. I told him to come down and I would be happy to redpoint and drill the first anchor bolt. For some strange reason he declined.
The route will not be called Kind Offering or Charitable Monday  Laugh Out Loud
