Tuttle Creek, Goin’ Nuts. In August 1974, Elliot Dubreuil and I climbed the red wall just west of Stonehouse Buttress on the south face of Lone Pine Peak. I believe that it was the first time this wall had been climbed, the other south face routes being much farther west. Starting about 150 feet right of the large left-facing dihedral that forms the west side of the face, we climbed up past two small trees and continued straight up. Fourteen full pitches of fifth-class climbing over excellent pink granite led to the top. We did the climb clean and hammerless.
