Just got word last night that RR and JT summitted the Moose’s tooth in 25 hours. (not bad for near sea level dwellers)

They landed on the root canal glacier, set up camp, and took off around early morning the next day. Awesome job.

HOLY SHIT!

they've already done more climbing than in patagonia!

Hell... At their current rate, they've got time for more than just one...

And sin city is at a bit over 2,000 feet above sea level... Not a lot, but if you compare to the tri-state region...

We're back in Anchorage and flying out today. I just can't climb anything else, and have this serious need to swing a golf club. See ya'll at the Uberfall.

RR

P.S. We managed to scratch our way up Shaken, Not Stirred, and the Mini Moonflower as well. Trip report to follow

Good show. Can't wait to see the slide show at Rock n Snow. Glad they made it back safe and sound, too.

Jumpin the gun here a little bit. I don't know if we will even have any worthwhile pictures to show. Remember, I still live in the slide film age.

Very cool Rob. Some years ago I was with Colby Coombs going up the west ridge of the Moose's Tooth from the Ruth Glacier. It was exceptionally warm and it seemed like stuff was falling down all around us. The ice fall on the approach to the West Ridge was a huge mushy falling apart mess. For every two steps we took up we'd slide down one in the slush. Popping through was easy. Colby still owes me a beer for keeping his butt out of a crevasse. Despite the warm weather our route unfortunately involved walking through a fresh debris field directly beneath three huge overhanging seracs. Pretty ugly stuff but other than Colby's short drop, and getting weathered off, the rest was uneventful, if you can call the stunning view up the Ruth from our camp high on the shoulder of the Moose's Tooth uneventful.

Is your TR report coming soon?

You mean the picture of the traverse and the picture of the crack?

Hahaha.

I actually have to hand it to RR for that slideshow. I really enjoyed it both times I saw it, and it was refreshing to get something other than "some people i'm friends with, yeah, they're cooler than you, and i did this awesome incredible route. What? What grade was the route? Don't worry, it's too hard for you, so we didn't grade it. And this amazing place is too cool for you to actually visit..."

Rob, i hope you do another slideshow.
