Nothing exceeds like excess. You should know that, Tony.


I really hope after he sleeps the sleep of the dead, that he posts up.  Oh man!  I think I pee'd my pants a little in excitement.

I am a little cooked right now! 

This site is the only one that is going to get this info, because Bigwalls is where it belongs.

Steve Bosque and I completed a 13 pitch independent route on Liberty Cap over the past week.

Tentatively called Scarface V 5.8 A3




It was a unbelievable experience, over a 5 day period.  Steve is the absolute best partner I have ever climbed with.  It took everything we had in the arsenal.

I will post up a full TR sometime soon.

Cheers!
Mucci

Pitch 6 from below, c2 right facing corner to big cam jugging on an over hanging wall.

Pic from P6 belay looking down at the corner and splitter wide crack.

Looks like a full value adventure...bravo, Mucci!
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Whoa. Dig it. Mucci, I had no idea. With Steve Bosque, too?
I'm cool with waitin' for a TR, but I'm gonna be anxious for awhile.
I like stories.

Another nice addition to the historical narrative that is Yosemite big walling...

a proud location and line

the bolt count tracking is a laudable goal, and not seen in Supertopos.  Very Reid-era style.

Cool story. I met Chuck Clance this weekend at the Pinnacles. Wish I'd known about this, I would have asked him about the aborted first attempt.
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.
