Tucker leads the first pitch - good protection abounds!
In between the first and second pitches
Success!

On July 18, 2010, Patrick and Tucker "Danger" Jones climbed the daunting North Face Boone/LaRue route of the terrifying Little Baldy in Sequoia National Park. This bone-chilling dome towers 1000 feet above the General's highway. Two pitches of bowel-shaking 5.6 and a little easy scrambling put you atop the behemoth's mighty crown.

Tucker led both pitches, as this was Patrick's first multi-pitch climb. Highly recommended for novices as the climbing is easy, the exposure pretty mild, and protection easy to come by! The first pitch is very easy to protect. The second includes what is probably the crux and is slightly tougher to protect.
