It's soooo distinctive looking if you've ever done it. And after all, it's only about 20 minutes from my house (depending on how well I time the lights on Wasatch Blvd.)!

Okay, this one should be a little harder. Still a classic for the area, though.

I'm sticking with "easy " non-Gunks shots. The background is a give-away on this one.

Is that the Great Dihedral that requires "houdini like moves" to complete the crux?




Including Winter-thin stemming (this is 5.9?) and thinner gear right over the belayer (please don't fall, please don't fall), before that exposed, trap-door escape hatch out to the beautiful dihedral. What a route!






Is there still fixed gear at the crux making it a spurt route?

Steep Face, thin crack, hemlock leaves in foreground, railing on top of Prow in background - all adds up to Airation

Back to the Gunks

At least the climber should be unrecognizable. Give a camera to the 3rd person, and one hopes for something other than the uber-classic butt shot! But no.....

DamÂ… its almost like some of you (Talus) are lurking 24/7 waiting to guess.

Badfinger, great route, short but stout.
