Talus: "rg any guess on this one. i think you did this route last year w/ Bragg. i was out there that day and was worried about the 2 guys having an epic out in millbrook. then only to learn it was you and Bragg climbing."
The route we did that day was Side Pocket---with a variation called Writhe to the Occasion because I couldn't for the life of me figure out where Side Pocket was supposed to go at a point where the "variation" was totally obvious. I can't recognize any part of the route from your picture.
Our only epic was finding the route. We began by climbing thirty or forty feet of dirty loose 5.easy, which got progressively 5.not-so-easy, only to realize, teetering around on a slab with no decent holds or anchor possibilities, that we were probably in the wrong spot. Discretion set in and we traversed to a tree and rappelled back to the Death Ledge rather than reversing the unroped scramble. We had already done other routes and by the time we found Side Pocket for sure it was relatively late in the day.
Once on Side Pocket, we were slowed by route-finding and protecting, and not only at the spot I mentioned above. I remember one 5.8-5.9 section I ended up protecting with two small Aliens, placed at the same level but twenty feet apart. Do not try this with a single rope.
The idea of watching out for other climbers at Millbrook is a mark of decency and reflects, I think, the generally more civil attitude that comes with low population density. Thanks for your concern.
