One of the hardest pitches on El Cap is also one of the "easiest". The monster offwidth climbs a 130' splitter 5.10 6 inch crack protected by one bolt and one cam. @alexhonnold and @tommycaldwell both told me I left room for improvement on my 1 hour ascent of the pitch. And I thought I was cruising. A pair of Salathe climbers snapped this photo of me during my bid to send the #megaproj @lasportivana @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing @patagonia

On Friday, @alexhonnold supported me while I attempted to free climb El Cap in a day. He snapped this photo of me on the Monster offwidth at about 8am. A few hundred feet later, I fell on the last move of the crux at the 23rd pitch. After a half dozen more tries, I grew tired. It's rough to fail on my #megaproj but it's part of the process. A chance of failure makes the adventure. @lasportivana @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing @patagonia

Dan McManus climbs the Crack of God pitch on Mahtah. This wild pitch is over 100 feet of splitter crack that runs horizontally on the wall. So cool! @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing @lasportivana
mikecall : Awesome @james_lucas

Dan McManus climbing the first 5.12 pitch on Mahtah, a route @cedarwright and @lucho_rivera established a year and a half ago. Great climbing and a remote position make this route classic. I hung once and fell once while Dan onsighted the route. Lots of great pitches!

Dan McManus making the second ascent of Jake Whittaker and Bon Jensens new 5.12+ route by Widow 'a Tears. Besides having amazing crack climbing, the route has one of the best face pitches , a 12+ lurch move where you balance on one foot and then fall into an arête. Mega Classic!
lmharnisch : @latams
b_xharles : Is this on the buttress just east of Windchill/Tower of Cosmic Winds?
