1rst big wall for experienced climber

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

I have decided to do a big wall. I have been climbing on and off for twelve years(mostly TRAD) and can do 5-11 pretty easy. I was wanting to know what would be best for my first big wall at Yosemite. Any advice would be most helpful. Thanks in advance.

South Face of Washington Column West face of the Leaning Tower or with your experience:(assuming) Salathe, the Nose, Lurking Fear, Triple Direct, or Zodiac.

Don't forget Half Dome-NW Face-Regular Route, Half Dome-NW Face-Direct, El Cap-West Face, and Liberty Bell-South Face.
