Glad I never lead that route...un-safe bolts. I might have to go inspect the route.

Who knew how much of a death trap son of dawn wall was.

You might want to open the window and get some fresh air  :lol:

I added two more routes to the list today:

-  468.8 Swing to the Right  5.6

-  468.9 Can You Spare a Square?  5.3

And I've got three more new routes to add too, but those three are in the new guidebook working text and I'll have to wait to post them here until Ellen updates my hand-written, chicken scratch notes into that list (then I can just copy/paste).

The amount of time I've been spending on Pinnacles lists, topos, maps and statistics is starting to boggle my mind. In the last week I've field-checked and cleaned/edited three topos to my current standards, written up five new routes (three of which are now done and on this site), worked on three separate parts of the updated/revised East Side text, updated the list of projects, climbed five days and kept track of my own climbs.

Is this a full time job? If so (self-appointed, so I'm not complaining), I kinda like it.

I added one route to the list just now:

-  312.4  Sling the Jockstone  5.11b

Started by Rob and Josh and just finished.

Now, Pinnacles for two more days before it rains. And we'll start the cycle all over  ::)

I'd love to see one. My fingers are sore though. You write it?

And it wasn't really harrowing. But I can say that Brian is very strong and very tall - he did a great job. And thanks to Rob and Josh - who aren't getting to Pinns as much as they used to - for letting us give it a go.

Warning, warning, the rating on this route is very height-dependent.

I added two routes to the list today:

-  352.33  Inverted Jug  5.9 *

-  351.6  Ribbet and Croak  5.6 R *

And as a further note, there are currently four routes on the “private” list, so we’re already over 1,200 routes at Pinnacles.

I added a route to the list today:

-  417.9  The Clipper  5.4

Although I didn't give the route any stars, I really enjoyed putting it up. I think the route either loses elevation or stays even in 135 feet of climbing. All with nice exposure and still ending 60 feet above the ground!

OK, I just added the first of several new routes that I'm trying to get added before I take off with Katie to Joshua Tree. It's:

432.1  The Raven - North Side  5.10c

Next I'll be posting a correction for the area, fixing some misinformation and explaining a bit about this route.

I added five more routes to the list. All were done over the Masters of Mud weekend:

-  351.3  The Great Escape  5.7 R

-  351.3  Spoof Proof Roof  5.9 **

-  352.943. Conjunction Junction  5.10d

-  370.9. Yellowflower Pinnacle  Class Four

-  407.2  Fifi Wears Lycra  5.9 *

I’ll add three more when I get to them (tomorrow, I hope).

EDIT: I should say that all were finished over that weekend.

And thanks for the look-over, J.C.
