Half Dome 2016: Do You Have Micronuts?


Stanley-Burgner, Prusik Peak, Enchantments

Does it say something that my favorite part of climbing Prusik Peak was getting a permit? Yeah, this was a few days of type three fun.

The night before heading in, we camped near the Canadian climbers Kyle, Ray and Shayna. The six of us teamed up to get a permit. Based on my expertise in game theory, I was elected team leader. Or based on the fact that nobody else wanted to do it. We decided to get the sole permit for Colchuck region instead of a one-in-six chance at Core region.

Things got worse after that.

The hike in to Colchuck was easy. About three hours of gentle uphill on good trails. We settled in early at a nice site with plenty of room for all of us. Awake at 5am the next morning, we were slow getting out of camp and didn't start hiking until nearly 7am. So at least we weren't hiking by headlamp. Aasgard pass was the grueling slog that it appeared to be. 2300' of elevation gain in less than a mile. Mostly on loose scree and talus. From the top of Aasgard a gentle descent into a beautiful alpine basin took us toward Prusik pass. From there we worked around to the south face of Prusik Peak. We arrived at 11am and I started my block of pitches at 11:30am.

I linked p1 and most of p2 in the first long pitch. Fun crack climbing with an exciting bit of offwidth thrown in for spice. Next I led all of p3 (easy climbing on granite knobs) and the first half of p4, past an airy stem box.

Then it was Guy's turn.

His pitches were a bit more intimidating.

Sorry Guy.

I should have told you.

Guy finished p4 which involved crawling through a squeeze under a chockstone. In Guy's opinion, he is the largest person to have ever squeezed through that space. I think he might be right. Guy belayed us up and we had to haul all three packs through the slot. Straightforward, but time consuming. After that, Guy got to wrestle up p5. The flaring squeeze was the kind of thing that makes you want to quit climbing and take up Scrabble. It was misery. We had to haul all three packs up the squeeze. They got stuck. And twisted. And more stuck. The tangled mess of two belay lines and a haul line took forever to resolve and tended to knock down rocks from the messy belay above p5. Don't worry, we didn't knock them all down. There are still thousands of loose rocks for future parties.

From there we just had the last pitch. Guy finished p6 (5.10, C1) just as the sun was setting. Erin struggled to climb it in the dark, and needed a dropped loop to make progress. I followed behind her on a pair of prussiks. Haha... I prussiked up Prusik. Haha. Did I mention it was dark? And had started to rain? Sliding wet prussik cord on an 8mm double rope is harder than you might think.

Reaching the summit at 9pm, we immediately started down. The rain was coming down harder. But at least it wasn't freezing rain. Except it was. Five rappels to the ground (four rappels, really Mountain Project?) and pulled the rope at 11pm. From there it was just a simple matter of walking back to camp. In whiteout fog, and freezing rain, and snow. It took us six hours.

At some point on the hike back I realized THIS WAS HAPPENING AT THE EXACT TIME 24HHH 2016 WAS BEING HELD IN ARKANSAS! No kidding. And we didn't plan it that way. That made me happy for about an hour. Then I was back to the reality of tired walking in the dark.

As the sun rose for a second time on our long outing, we slept for a few hours, then ate some food, packed up camp, and hiked back out to the car.

We got ice cream at Cold Stone... that might have been even better than getting the permit.


Smoke Bluffs, Squamish, BC, Canada

I just can't get a break with PNW weather. It is raining all day Saturday and pouring at night. Sunday is clear, but the Grand Wall is still soaking wet. We head to Smoke Bluffs which is in the sun and drying out.

We climb Split Beaver. Offwidth. Hard. I give it a second go on TR and it feels easy. I have a terrible lead head. Then we each jug the route twice to dial in our ascenders. Finished the day on Zip. Which I had first climbed over 10 years ago.


Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Crater Lake NP (Caldera Lake NP?) exceeded expectations. The caldera is the result of a massive volcanic explosion that put 50km^3 of magma into the air over a week, then caused a 12000' mountain to collapse into the resulting void in just an hour or two. The devastation 7700 years ago must have been beyond imagination. Though not as impressive as when the Yellowstone volcano ejected 2000km^3 of magma a few million years ago.

Now the park is the snowiest inhabited place in the USA, getting an average of 44' of snow a year. Mid-October is late in the season, which is fine with me because the crowds are thin. I hike about 10 miles total. To the top of Mt. Scott, the park's high point. And to the top of Garfield Peak near the rim village.


Yosemite National Park

Guy arrives in the afternoon. We think about getting a few burns on Midnight Lightning in Camp 4. Instead we opt for some mellow trad climbing to get a feel for the granite. We head to Necromancer wall and climb Sensuous Mortician and Fold Out. Both are fun climbs. We can just barely get back to the ground with a single 70m rope and simulrapping to increase rope stretch.

We are at the gate when it opens at 6am. I didn't realize Yosemite closed at night, but I guess that is new. Anyhow, we head straight for Dark Shadows. We start climbing at 7am and just after noon we are atop Mescalito and enjoying a break for lunch. It is a windy day, but the climbing is somewhat sheltered. Somewhat.

Full Dark Shadows climbs 10 pitches, then another 2 pitches of scrambling interspersed with fifth class moves to the summit. From there we followed cairns southwest to two rappels (you can skip the short rappel, but risk getting the rope stuck) which put us in the drainage above Cat In The Hat. We were back to the car by 4:30pm.

Monday we planned an easier day to rest up for a big climb the next day. We climbed Waterboys in Icebox Canyon. The approach is quite a bushwhack, and the first two pitches are sub-par, and the rappels are real rope eaters. But the third pitch is stellar! Sustained and hard! Not exactly a rest day though. A rest day would have involved going to a casino. Not sure where, but we hear other climbers talking about a nearby casino. Maybe in the Ahwahnee Hotel? It is named after an indian tribe, maybe they have tribal laws allowing gambling?

Tuesday we are awake at 4am. Which lets us hit the booty jackpot at the dumpster! Thanks random climbers ending a road trip!

We make the hike to Rainbow Buttress in just over three hours. The climb itself is not too bad. The crux pitch is the best of the bunch and is quite stout. We really wish we had brought Guy's brand new 3.5 camalot. With our one #3 in the anchor, I've got to run out the last 30' of the crux pitch. No need to bring a #5 on the climb, but a second #3 is clutch.

The walkoff is as gorgeous and spectacular as everyone says. Though it is really dark in the shade. Even after I stop to take off my sunglasses 😎

Great views of Mt. Watkins, Icebox Canyon and Buffalo Wall. We reach easy trail hiking as it becomes headlamp o'clock. 14.5 hours car-to-car. Pretty casual all things considered. But I'll admit we needed the rest day we enjoyed on Wednesday.

Thursday we are back at it heading into Black Velvet Wall early in the morning. We get on Dream of Wild Turkeys and climb the Yellow Brick Road variation. Finish that around noon and decide we have plenty of time to climb the infrequently done upper pitches of Dream of Wild Turkeys. Pitches 8, 9 and 10 go quickly. The rappel is problematic as our ropes get stuck and Guy has to use all his skills to get it free. We still hike out with plenty of daylight remaining. We have earned peanut M&Ms and a trip to the hot springs. We were trying to find the trail up to Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls, but nobody could help us. The rangers here don't even know where the most popular hike in the park is located! So settling for a trip to the hot springs is a good alternative.

Saturday we only have a half day because Guy needs to get to the airport. We head to Winter Heat Wall to stay in the shade. We climb Couldn't Be Schmooter, High Class Ho, and toprope Winter Heat. I'm pretty proud of my onsight of High Class Ho. Hmmm... I got every single roof pitch this trip. Maybe I do still remember how to climb. Maybe.

Guy leaves at the right time. Two solid days of rain mean there will be no climbing for three days. Really four or five days. Steve comes down and we meet Allison and Sharon and share a site among the four of us. Since we can't climb, we head to the hot springs for a full day of relaxation.

The next morning we are joined by Matthew. He and Steve and I climb Burbon Street. The first two pitches are great (and I think the first pitch is much harder than the second). Above that the route quests up low angle faces of poor quality rock. Overall a good route. And a great way to finish ten days climbing only new (to me) climbs. In fact, the Yosemite guidebook we have doesn't even mention any of these climbs!

At night I head to St. George to meet up with Rob and Anna. We bike and hike in the Red Cliffs area. Rob convinces me not to put a tarantula on my arm for the photo op. "That's how people get mauled by bears," says Rob. Apparently bears are attracted to tarantulas. Who knew?

After Utah, a long drive across the country puts me in Ann Arbor after Halloween. Hanging out with Emily, Julia and their housemates we play dodgeball, watch dodgeball, enjoy a Maize Maze, and watch the Cubs win the world series. Though I went to bed when there was a rain delay before extra innings. So I didn't hear about the results until morning. Not sure why any of that stuff is relevant.

Are we still in the Yosemite section of this trip report? This web site makes no sense. I'm not even convinced that you went to Yosemite.

And then I drove home. The end.
