North America, United States, California-Sierra Nevada, Tombstone Shadow, Big Baldy Dome, Sequoia National Forest

Tombstone Shadow, Big Baldy Dome, Sequoia National Forest. In May, Roy Swafford, Barry Fowlie and I climbed a four-pitch route which starts in a huge left-facing corner on Big Baldy’s south face. Steep but easy climbing up the comer leads to a pitch of precarious climbing up an overhanging, leaning finger-crack and chimney. Easier climbing then led to the summit. The loose blocks which helped the route earn its name are now removed. (III, 5.10.)
