Beta on Kali Yuga : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

Anyone have any beta of info on the Kali Yuga on the half dome?

This route has only had about 5 ascents. Few pin scars. Lots of expanding stuff. A wild pendulum. Harder than Zenith and probably about the same difficulty as the White Room or Big Chill.

If you have never done a route on "true" Northwest Face of Half Dome I would do Tis sa ack or Zenith first, then something sportier like Kali Yuga or Big Chill. Many people have raved about how great the Big Chill is.

I am looking for a climbing partner to do routes on half dome. Email me if you would like to start on the Tis-sa-ack.
