Timeline 03-2009: The North Wind revisited, sorta, and more.

I erroneously included problems in the Real Hidden Valley with problems around the parking lot. Hence, the “yet there is more around Dead Man” post is renamed The North Wind. Therefore, I’ve included a small collection of other images from the original ascents by Jon and I on that renamed post.

In this post, I’ve focused on the boulder field just under Run For Your Life, or there abouts.

…and this one went, but by the spotter. Here, Mike B trying to commit to the mental crux. This problem starts down and right in the shadowy corner.

called officially Corner Face unofficially the Wright Arete, it’s one of 3 problems on this short face… the third being to his right.


super quality short and punchy, Jon W FAing another un-named line.

Mike B setting up for the throw.

the line starts matched at the right hand hold.

back on the job sweepin’.

falling to his left is NOT a good idea.

next up the exit move…

…and the exit.

“grasshopper, you must grab the hold, very hard, then you will not fall”

matching in the shallow dish
