Climb Report - Tahquitz - The Uneventful 5.5 (June. 2005)


'Jas' & 'Jeff S.'

On the North Face, our route 'The Uneventful' 5.5, 8 pitches, though mostly a sustained 5.1 with a couple of sections of 5.5-ish:

Jas & Jeff geared up and ready to go:

1st pitch is up to the 2nd bush:

Back the way we just came:

Looking out at Suicide Rock from first pitch belay station:

2nd pitch goes well past that tree:

A look back down:

Jeff is going to start the 3rd pitch which goes past all these trees:

The top of the 3rd pitch has a nice belay under a tree:

Look there's more people coming up another route (North Butress, pretty sure). and down to the right you can see a patch of snow:

4th pitch looks nice:

Pretty sure that was 3rd pitch belay tree down there:

5th up, looks straight up but not that bad, really:

From up on top of this pitch, it looks kinda easy, if high up:

Actually under another nice tree:

Jeff geared up . . . . and so crowded, there is another guy who came up and belayed at the junction spot too:

Jas looking well protected, 6th route actually goes up to the right here:

Right up this way, I thought this was the hardest part, tricky "chimney" action:

And the belay was the most exposed yet of the day:

7th pitch wasn't too tough, all "down-hill" after that hard 6th-one:

Belay is pretty damn high up though:

8th, and last, home-free!:

And champs:

1st big multi-pitch-completion-smile:

now long . . . long . . . walk down :-)
