2nd ascent, Sierras
« on: September 06, 2006, 10:55:55 am »
I've been sworn to silence so I can't say where or what this climb is named. However I can say it was 11 pitches tall, goes at V 5.5 C2 and is a wilderness wall that sees no traffic. Terrific splitters that will go free at 5.12 or harder and lots more route potential. Good thing Yosemite is so close, it keeps people from finding these climbs!!!!!

Sworn to silence? How can I go repeat your route then?

Sorry guys but in due time the info will be released. Here's a hint- Look around Mammoth Pool Reservoir.

oddly enough I was just talking to Ubergoober about that area. My pops did some backpacking there abouts and says it is gorgeous back there.

Shit, I'm a thousand miles from where you are talking about!  Why the tease?  I'm not going to take it but it sounds TOOOO sweet.  Tell you what, just whisper it to me... I won't tell anybody where it's at.  Everybody else turn your monitors off; no peeking! ;)

You would be hard pressed to stroll into the sierra range and not fined an immense supply of 11 pitch+ walls with minimal traffic.

Tie the answer to a balloon and let it float away. ;)

Balloon dome is big, real big, but the entry fee is high on the approach and climb out after the route.

Not many modern big walls there, and not very consistent in difficulty or so I have heard.

You have to rig a tyrolean to get accross the river, which is a logistical nightmare.

Fuller Buttes is high on my list, 6 or more Grade IV/V routes, a few that have repeats.

Didder topped out last autumn on his 3rd? trip up his route "southern yosemite Direct 5.10 A3, they walked into our camp, thrashed but stoked!

I've been wondering about Fuller Buttes. Still haven't been there. Looks rad.

Fullers are badass.
