Mark Lowell in the rubble between Saddleback S. Slide and Basin's False Summit Slide.
Looking up the old face...widened on the right.
More rubble where there was once acres of trees.
Kevin (MudRat) climbing the first small pitch.
Kevin resting along the vertical ledge, a newly exposed feature based on the slab quality.
Small dike marking the bottom of the "old" face.
Looking across the bottom of the old face.
Slide run-out. There was previously a small exposure on the left only.
Mark surveying the damage with a camera.
Small ledges en route.
Upper ledges marking the second pitch and its transition to the completely new area. This visible in aerial photos as a diagonal line.
New territory which runs on a w-nw track to the upper pitch...many hundreds of feet wide.
Plenty of contour here.
Saddleback peeking over the treeline.
Mark on the new section.
Top of the new central pitch and the new run on the upper right.
Debris lines and our last bit of sunlight.
Mark pointing to a small geologic feature in the slab.
Diverting run-outs follow each other down the slope.
Kevin looking at the cliffs on Saddleback's ridge.
Now about 5:00 p.m. in the shadow of Basin. A nice diagonal fracture is visible in the new run.
New run on the right...probably others.
Transition of slab to the west.
Using Mark for scale. Up-rooted trees and rubble along the edge.
Lots of route choices.
A nice feature in a steep pitch.
Nearing the top. Mid section rolling off in the distance. Saddleback cliff in far background.
Sketchy section up compacted mud.
MudRat in the last few feet.
Mark in the dense cripplebrush at the top. Fun!!!!!
