The Prindle wall from camp. Piggy Spire is the large tower on the right with the main wall behind. The left arching dihedral on Piggy Spire is Homewrecker.

Ian racks up for the Klondike

If this is a sport climb, why does he have all that gear? And a hammer? We finished the Klondike and put in a couple more bolts so it can probably be done without pins now. It goes at 5.9.

Ian starts up Homewrecker

Ian on the first pitch of Homewrecker (5.9). The dihedral above is the stellar second pitch (5.9).

Jed starting the fourth pitch of Homewrecker

Starting the fourth pitch of Homewrecker. This was the FFA of this pitch. The first move is 5.9 and the rest is 5.8, but the lead feels a little more serious than the lower ones due to the loose flakes and poor protection.
