It's on clean white, water worn granite. Wanted to solo the trough before descending but realized that our beta did'nt have an approach section. The book showed a 5.0 pitch above the L-shaped pine, but looking at it, it was straight vertical with a good-sized roof (5.0 my a$$ !) so we thought this COULDN'T Glad you made it out ok, and with a smile on my face, glad it wasn't me...Climb on!
Loading... P5: climbed 30 feet on class 4 to position below the "J Tree" and joining The Uneventful. At the "body swallower" crack the climber needs to go left. As he began to climb, or shortly thereafter, White fell, pulling Guth from his belay position. https://www.mountainproject.com/v/the-error/105799982
Pretty f-ing scary for the first time, not knowing how much grip you're going to loose. Cameron Robbins 3,361 views 8:12 Tahquitz North Buttress - Duration: 6:08. The two men fell approximately 200 feet, and finally stopped on a small ledge just above the overhang on the first pitch. Loading...

Next year , armed with EB's , my friend carelessly knocks a small block off nailing my brand new rope and damaging it..I remember tip toeing on the loose block that My condolences to loved ones of the victim. All Rights Reserved. This block (roughly 5 FEET long, 6-7 inches thick, 3-4 FEET wide, proceeded to bounce and break into many huge rocks directly overhead missing us only by inches.
I believe we felt that SAHARA TERROR was a better route, but over the 40+ years since we climbed SAHARA TERROR it has had problems with loose blocks. A deep low angle crack leads up from the Fir tree to a "overhanging, downward jutting block," one of the highlights of the LONG CLIMB. The climbers that had jumped in ahead of us on CONSOLATION yelled, screamed, whined and complained all the way up the climb. White joined Guth and prepared to lead the next pitch directly upward.
Thanks to all of those who volunteer to complete these rescue and unfortunately sometimes recovery missions.

Hurriedly the trio got ready to climb and jumped onto the climb ahead of us. I tried to go left, grabbing a downward-facing horn and trying to move out onto the face. I like to climb diagonally right over an easy overhang to a crack that leads to the tree. Heard the helos in the air today...oddly, the thought struck me that an incident had occurred.
After the chockstone section is a section of cracks, side-pulls, and other fun stuff, after which you take the crack that's the left part of the Y up and over. A little cold, a little windy, but otherwise a perfect day!Posted Nov 13, 2007 2:41 pm Augie MedinaAn East/West Gully off Maxwell TrailDate Climbed: Jul 21, 2007Beautiful day. You can peek around the corner to get an idea of the pro you'll need. .If the left side is not challenging enough, try the right side of the downward jutting Set up a belay about 40-50 feet above the first big ledge and ran straight up the crack.
That area is one to be careful on for sure. Edit, After rereading the eyewitness account it sounds like this happened right after the dogleg. SuperTopo Guidebooks Try a free sample topo!
That pitch has always been notoriously loose and seems to change a bit every year. Up thru the roof, there's a nice ridge-horn to grab, and once you get your foot there, you're home free over the roof, then around the corner to a well-protected (from Cheers to the selfless volunteers for doing the grunt work! The news (see link below) has it as a hiker death.
I've climbed the steep crack in the corner and it is awkward and relatively difficult. Ran into Dave Daly and Deb (who were coming up via Coffin Nail) at the top of 2nd pitch belay of Jensen's Jaunt. The second pitch is the crux, and the best pitch on the climb. I was there that day back in the 80's, when that gal was struck by the rock on Sahara Terror....a truly grisly scene.
I have never climbed wet before, so I was a little sketched. Posted Jun 17, 2006 6:29 pm forjanAngel's Fright, Left Ski TrackDate Climbed: May 20, 2006Climbed with Juan Carlos Marvizon.
