On the approach to The Mace. The Mace is the obvious tower in the middle of the photograph.
Looking up the route from the base of the tower.
Mark led the first pitch. Minesh starts through the 5.7 limestone band roof.
Me pulling the moves over the 5.7 limestone roof.
I led the second pitch. Looking down at the OW near the top of the second pitch.
Removing the damn number 6!
OW moves to jugs--nice!
Mark starts out on the exposed 5.7 traverse of the third pitch.
Looking up the OW crack on the third pitch. It wasn't too bad to stem this section.
From the top of the sub-summit, one must “fall” across the gap to reach the wall of the main summit. A lone bolt just across the gap offers protection for committing to stepping across and up.
Minesh readies himself to commit.
Bam! Now pull across to the left side. Whew, 150' of air below him!
Rappeling from the main summit into the notch between the two. It's actually recommended to either jump or do a short rap down to the lower summit and then rap from there. Less rope drag and less rock damage that way.
