correct w/ tower. wrong climb




Gotta be in that area though, with that light. Near Sounf & Fury, because that light does not wrap itself around the No Exit Buttress.

If the partner was Rod, it probably wasn't a hard 10 or 11 (no offense Rod!).

Gargoyle?

PS: I climbed at devils Tower with Rod back in early 90's. He climbed TAD with my wife. TAD~! Frigging offwidth/fist crack with no shoes!

Love that guy.

No doubt it is one tough and aggro move. And scary with that loose and creaky flake.




Casablanca? It's like 5.6. Undercling flake, reach directly to large horizontal, right foot up, rock over. Fini!

No. It is like 5.8. Plus.


I guess with that knuckle dragging ape index you got, it's easier. Me? I have to dyno for it.

Okay, pedestrian, Casablanca is a 5.6, and City Streets is a 5.8 - suuuuuure. I guess using your 2-grade deflation technique, Enduro Man is 5.9! C'mon, man!

The description sounds like Maria.





Except that the third pitch roof of Maria is the crux and is deceptively tricky, not easy.






Nerdom is correct, of course, it's the Maria roof. And while P3 is the crux, once you figure out the sequence, it's definitely no harder than 5.6 though the roof. And I'd agree with the "best 5.6 roof" in the gunks statement.

Has to be The Faulkner route: Sound & Fury.


Ped: let's do some climbing together. I have some interesting, um, 9's I'd like to show you.

Here's another easy one (disclaimer: when I led this, the gear was pre-placed to the crux; the leader backed off and I gave it a try; and, in the interests of full disclosure, I whipped the first time I tried to pull the crux; but I like the picture!):
