“After taking the time to check out the first few pitches of the unforgiving route “Native Son” we decided make an attempt on the “North American Wall”. Everything went smoothly until the 10th pitch, when we caught up to a solo climber. We realised that trying to overtake him in the higher, extremely exposed head wall would be too stressful for us so we decided to rappel when we still had this chance!
After a few rest days we made our way to the much calmer High Sierra. There we found exactly what we had been looking for: Beautiful weather, best quality granite and no crowds!
At the end of three amazing climbing days we continued to the Needles, where we were greeted with brilliant climbing on the Witch, Voodoo, Warlock and Co.“
