Looks like Catslab, Clear Creek Canyon.

Jim - Nice shots. Go all the way to the top? I'd like to go back and do the hand traverse variation.

The pinnacle is such an amazing piece of rock, great picture! I need to get (a helluva-lot) better at climbing, I'd love to do the center route one of these days...

Brian, interesting you should ask. :oops: Actually, the plan was to either take the traverse over to the 12b bolted face on the south summit block (reputed by most to be easily aid-able) or the 11b "R" line from the top of the Center route, up the E/NE corner (called "Class Act.")

We got a bit of a late start and by the time I got to the hand-crack in the east-facing side of the dihedral on P3, it was after 6pm. So we decided to finish the standard route, and have a look at Class Act, the 11b pitch. One of three pins supposedly fell out - one is pretty manky looking, and the third looks good. We brought a set of aliens and RPs; the blue and green aliens (1 and 2) plus some RPs, should back up the pins pretty well. After an ascending right traverse across the pins, there are three fairly new-looking bolts. It looked like a "go" to us, but it was just after sundown. So we opted to call it a day and come back some time soon for one of these other two routes, and/or Wunsche's. But we had fun, and got to do four raps in the dark, searching for anchors by headlamp on our vertical sea of stone. \:D/

Husky - Thanks! Yes, Center Route. It's a beauty!

Dave - I really don't think you'd have any problem with it. You should go for it! South-facing and I hear folks climb it even on sunny days in January. Maybe you and Brian would like to meet me and Mike for a go some weekday?
