Suicide Rock is a great location - above the 'town' of Lone Pine - all very Californian Old West. This climb is very steep - Fred led it well, after taking a couple of rests, and I seconded it. I was pleased to do it quite smoothly because the smoothness of the granite (compared with grit) was a bit disconcerting. There is a classic 5.8 Flowewr of High Rank just to the right - apparently Gordon Stainforth and his brother John climbed this many moons ago. Small world!
