I haven't yet, but I will in September. If you have to ask what the point is, you will never understand...

Prairie dogs??!!? For god's sake go do something useful with your time and take out the evil marmots that lurk at the popular bivi sites on Longs, below Spearhead, etc. Prairie dogs are just confused rodents (and kinda cute!) - marmots are the hell-spawn of satan.

Our ranch does not come with a banjo player or a boys choir, sadly, although it boasts plenty of prairie dogs to shoot!

I did the Third Flatiron when I was in high school and barely knew how to climb. It's been done in roller skates. Fun, but more like 1000' of fourth class.

i believe the 3rd has been done on a mountain bike.
and strat, you had every opportunity to book your flight out later and climb the 3rd with mr iphone, you chose not to take it.

Yes, I did, but the notion of managing the luggage on this trip didn't excite me. I will have two long range rifles and a shotgun. I don't want to have to carry a helmet, harness, shoes, etc as well. Nonetheless, I have a mild amount of regret.

I like the ones with the spring action. Is this a result of how you hit them, or the size of the slug that gets tossed into them that causes this?

It's mostly the amount of energy in the projectile that determines that. So, in these videos it is mostly range-to-target. The one that really sprang was only 40 yards away. But, it also matters what part of the body you hit.

The banjo is only mildly annoying, but the f_cking idiotic boys cheering squad makes me think they should have been substituted for the prairie dogs.

I can loan you all that stuff except for the shoes (unless you wear size 8). You could easily do it in the AM on your way down to the Denver Airport. Seriously, I'd be happy to do it.
