Face to the left of lookout crack
« on: October 14, 2013, 09:58:19 PM »

Climbed this on top rope after leading the crack.  Anyone know what it is?  Some sweet micro edging up to a bulge then back over right to join the crack.  Super thin.

I Did it on TR myself 20 years ago. When I asked about I was told that it was done by John Bouchard BITD. VERY thin!

According to the Webster 1982 guide, it's Little Stalking 5.11, done on TR by Kurt Winkler then led by Doug Madara & Steve Larson on April 9, 1981.

Little Stalking is further left.  According to Jerrys new book.  "Climb steep fingery slab until possible to move into short right facing corner at 20' good nut."  The face we climbed was the face immediate left of the crack.

Little Stalking was my first ever 5.11 (on toprope) in the 80's.  My brother Chris flashed it (onsight really, though on TR), so I had to as well being the older (and thinking I'm stronger lol) brother.   Was it rehearsed prior to the lead?  If not, then God bless Kurt.

Good thing it was originally 10+ EYE   ;)  A pretty tough first 5.11 for sure..

I am almost positive that Kurt didn't tr it first
