Bonus points if you can name the pitch. :-D

Friction Pitch on UE?

A few from our climb of The Maiden a few years back. Easy climbing but a super unique route.

Heading across the exposed West Ridge to the Crow's Nest:

Ha! Just saw this. Is it a "celestial" route?

And I'm still hoping to just climb the Weenie Route on that pebble. Looks great...

Dave - how was it? I've always wanted to do that route.

Edit: Here's some Fisher 5th class from this last weekend...

Pretty fun! Second pitch was awesome, the roof reminded me of the crux bulge on P1 of Great Zot with the hand crack, just more of a roof and with a bomber hero jug. The first pitch was thin micro-smears and edges (RPs very helpful), but getting off the ground is the hardest. I fell three times trying to get established in the hand crack to the right. Glad I was seconding that...

Congrats to what looks like another successful trip to UT, look forward to the tr.
