Pictures from Tribal Rite
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:50:59 pm »
I'll eventually get around to writing a trip report, but need to drive off to Joshua Tree so here's a link to the photos I took while soloing Tribal Rite this last week or so.

Here'e the link to all the photos I have on my picasa:

Here's a few that I like a lot.



And the link to the whole online album again is:

Nice - love the peregrine shots.  I thought Tribal was a fun route, and sitting out a short storm like that all cozy in the ledge is a great way to get a forced rest day. 

Be up there in 2-weeks - PUMPED!!

Nice job and great effort!!!

After soloing Afroman two weeks prior, I felt that Tribal Rite was very straightforward. It was a good progression because I never felt like I couldn't do anything technically on TR that I hadn't already done on Afroman and steeper at that, and so I was able to focus on the carpentry over the climbing.

Great organized approach to the food. How did it work out? Was there enough variety?

I didn't see a stove? No Coffee for 12 days?

Thanks.

Food worked great. I only eat once a day and variety isn't too important to me. As long as I have some meat and some sugar, I'm happy.
Putting it into separate bags also allowsr to keep one pack at the top of the haul bag and the rest of the food at the bottom.

Plus, the separate bags helped when I dropped my toilet pack and needed something to defecate into that sealed itself.

No stove. I don't need warm food and don't drink coffee, caffeine, or beer on the wall when I solo because I'm afraid of dehydrating myself more than normal.

@johnmac

It looks as though Mucci has you covered. I saw some at Yosemite Mountaineering Shop. I think those were ZEPHYR equipment by Kris Wickstrom. There were red ones and blue ones, but I forget what the difference was, maybe cable fatness?

Great work, hats off. That's along time to be up there, you made it look pretty casual.

Thanks, it was fun times. There's something about being on a climb for over a week. Towards the top I remember thinking, "I don't remember starting this climb." It really started to feel like I was living up there, both in where I was and how I felt more alive because of the simplicity of each day.

Great photos, Kevin. I commented on a few but on a few others I got a "No comments are allowed on this photo" message.

Awesome route isn't it?
