Basic Aid Climbing Leading Technique - How To Big Wall Climb

A companion to the book How To Big Wall Climb which details how to go from the very basics to the summit of El Capitan.

Climbing The Nose

Three rookies climbing The Nose on El Capitan in May 2018. This was our first big wall and we spent 5 days and 4 nights. Our idea was do it in 3 days, so we brought only 30l of water and not to many food. It was really hard, but we had so much fun.

Aid Climbing Fall on The Glass Menagerie

I was solo aid climbing The Glass Menagerie in North Carolina when a cam hook popped out of its placement. I was on the second (variation) pitch and I was trying to link up pitches 1 through 4 with a 70m rope. My first unintentional fall on my solo device!

The second time round I did the same move, but placed the cam hook ever so slightly differently, and moved a lot quieter!

I free climbed the first pitch at 5.11a with an aid move past the 5.11d section. Then tagged up the rest of my gear and climbed the second pitch C2+. I linked straight on to the third (fourth for normal GM route) and set the portaledge up just below the roof. It took 23 draws, 17 cams and 8 nuts to link all the pitches.

My First Time Aid Climbing

The following is my second time aid climbing and the first time lead aiding. The route is about 80ft and took me ~3hr including setting up two anchors just so we can practice hauling and hanging belay.

This was training for an attempt at the West Face of the Matterhorn in Northeast Oregon Eagle Cap Wilderness.
