Ascent Trip Report

***SCMA Eval Climb***

5 pitch trad climb up the 5.7** "El Whampo" on the Northeast Face of Tahquitz (Lily Rock) led by Clay Trager. Great climb featuring a really fun climb up a 110' vertical crack on the second pitch. Huge fun, nice and challenging without being overwhelming.

We didn't set out trying for this summit, but we were so close to it that we thought we'd head up there at the end of the climb since we were only a couple hundred yards away. We changed our minds at the top of the last pitch though because it was so late and all 3 of us had been up there before.
