Route Log

    2015
  1. Oct 27, 2015 Zodiac, El Capitan Southeast Face w/ Gena Wood. 1 day
    Gena fixed two pitches then took us to belay 5. I led from belay 5 to peanut in 8:30. Gena cruised to the top. Fun route. Great times shortfixing and climbing continuously through the circle. Hammerless.
  2. Oct 09, 2015 Waterfall Route, El Capitan Southeast Face w/ Joe Marley. 11h:22mins
    Cruising up the Waterfall Route with Joe was great. Was good to have tons of fun after so much work went into it. Speed record!! 4 hours to 8. Joe crushed the aid to the top.
  3. Oct 07, 2015 Lurking Fear, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Gena Wood. 15hours
    5 hours to Pillar. Stellar times on the big stone with a radically fun partner.
  4. Sep 26, 2015 ,
  5. Sep 26, 2015 Waterfall Route, El Capitan Southeast Face w/ Matt, Kyle, Kaleb.
    How to sum it up... Re-established and reconnected the route. Really fun climbing. Repaired old or destroyed hardware, new pitch through rock scar. Great times and high adventure seemingly stepping back 40 years on El Cap.
  6. Aug 21, 2015 Southwest Face, Liberty Cap w/ Thomas Povey. 1 day
    Thomas's first wall. Fixed one then blasted next morning. Topped out in afternoon. Great adventurous route. Bottom half is rad, top half has some sick and fun chimneys, but is quite traversy and manzanitay. Great times up there with Povey!
  7. Jul 16, 2015 Zenyatta Mondatta, El Capitan Southeast Face w/ Joe Reidhead. 3 days
    Amazing climb with some really classic climbing. Nothing really too spectacularly dangerous. Awesome bivies. First El Cap A4 and first time climbing with Joe. Led every pitch harder than A2, awesome adventure. Will vividly remember forever. Bridwell's a boss.
  8. Jul 11, 2015 Skull Queen, Washington Column South Face w/ Gena. 1 day
    1st time climbing with Gena. Great times.
  9. Jul 02, 2015 West Face, Leaning Tower w/ Adam Ramsey. 2 days
    Adams first wall. Awesome times watching storms roll through from ahwahnee. Peregrine glory.
  10. Jun 27, 2015 Wet Denin Daydream, Leaning Tower 09h:30mins
    Rad climb. Was going for speed but logged a bit of air time half way, burnt hands. Continued to top for rad adventure. Roof never fails to excite.
  11. Jun 2015 South Face, Washington Column South Face w/ Joe Marley. 03hours
    Speeding up the column with Joe. Southern man bypass to roof. Great times. Summiting after work!
  12. 2014
  13. Nov 09, 2014 South Face, Washington Column South Face w/ Flo Li. 2 days
    Flo's first wall! Awesome bivy on brunch ledge. Climbed southern man variation to kor roof. Stellar weekend!
  14. Nov 05, 2014 Re-Animator, Washington Column South Face w/ Joe marley.
    8 hours to top of 7th pitch. I dropped an aider with one of our sets of hooks on it... Doh! Lots of fixed heads and hooks. An okay route.
  15. Oct 15, 2014 Grape Race, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Tito. 5 days
    Five days of living it up on El Cap. Tito's first wall. Hauled way too much... I think i gained weight on the ascent. Good climb but lots of rivets. Fun climbing on discontinuous features.
  16. Aug 22, 2014 Lurking Fear, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Joe "Gnarly" Marley. 16hours
    First El Cap in a day. Lurking fear is really an overrated route. Except for the several awesome splitter pitches, the route is either a bolt ladder or choss. A good day on the big stone nonetheless!
  17. May 20, 2014 The Shield, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Alec Zachreson. 4 days
    Great adventure. Started from heart. Climbed to chickenhead completely clean! Headwall was stellar. Scarred but super fun and exposed. Alec hit in a couple pins above chickenhead to keep him off the ledge if he biffed it. Spent bivi at hang with two guys on a single portaledge. Great times and many memories.
  18. May 02, 2014 Skull Queen, Washington Column South Face w/ Joe marlay. 05hours
    Fun day with perfect weather. First time roping up with Joe. Many more adventures to come.
  19. Apr 20, 2014 Lost Arrow Direct, Yosemite Falls Wall w/ will masterman. 2 days
    Awesome
  20. Apr 06, 2014 Wet Denin Daydream, Leaning Tower 11hours
    Amazing climb. Eleven hours solo. Had to nail two beaks on pitch above Ahwahnee. Bummer but so it goes. No fixed gear in thinness. Roof was AMAZING!
  21. Mar 21, 2014 Lurking Fear, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Rush. 3 days
    Great time on the wall. Vertical camping trip. Super fun climbing with Rush who flew out from Boulder just for the climb. 7 days on El Cap out of the last 9. Life is good.
  22. Mar 15, 2014 Zodiac, El Capitan Southeast Face 3 days
    Great adventure. First solo of the captain. Soloing sure is a lot of work but I find it very rewarding. This was a vision quest climb for sure. I need to study some more Hudon tips.
  23. Mar 09, 2014 The Prow, Washington Column East Face w/ Zak. 1 day
    Classic wall with great position. Pretty beat up but super fun.
  24. Feb 23, 2014 Laughing at the Void, Ribbon Fall w/ Alec Zachreson.
    It goes clean! Our ascent was what I believe to be the first clean ascent. We left the hammers at home and dubbed our voyage "Laughing at the Hammer." This is no longer a nailup but a classic clean aid test piece. The crux is C3+. Absolutely stellar climbing on a beautiful piece of rock. Amazing. Trip report on Supertopo.
  25. 2013
  26. Sep 2013 Salathe, El Capitan Southwest Face w/ Alec Zachreson. 4 days
    Lotsa wide. Messed up ankle on off route fall. Awesome historical route.
  27. May 2013 The Nose, El Capitan w/ Cam Zachreson. 2.5 days
    First time on El Cap. Awesome time.
  28. May 2013 West Face, Leaning Tower 09h:30mins
