LeTeton was always one of my favorite 5.9's (last pitch is about 50') Sort of grabs your attention and does protect well.

Since the discussion has moved towards other areas, has anyone led Half-Moon Crack on Vertigo at Cannon? Am I going to die on this thing, or just get hurt real bad? Its already some of the most intimidating 5.9 climbing for me, and I've only seen pictures at this point.

In light of moving away from the Gunks and upping the grades a bit....Also very exciting on Cannon is Downeast at 5.10. The crux pitch is(was) sparsely protected, thin face climbing on the 5th pitch.

On Whitehorse check out The Ninth Wave, which back in the days of EBs, etc. was a 9.

I enjoy Tim Kemple, Sr. telling of when his son wanted to get a good, early AM shot of Dad on the Half Moon Crack. After the first lead, he was asked to do it again and then again to get the right image. That's a lot of skin scraped away on one day.

Slopur is laughing to self thinking about this talk of 5.9. In Climbikstan, this is training grade for babies. No one really brag about climbing until it get very hardlike.....maybe 5.13. 5.9.....this funny business!! Like 5.9 ever be exciting...ha ha!!

How about Jekyll and Hyde? (Not sure if there is a full 40' of excitement.)

Two suggestions;

1st is the top bit of Anguish (makes sense that the most exciting pitch of 5.9 in the Gunks is 5.8)

2nd and perhaps first is Crash and Burn.

Nice to hear someone else thinks Anquish is a bit sandbagged.
