I'm gonna guess the landscape macro is the start of Stirrup Trouble.

Only rule to this one is that to "get credit" you have to guess before the poster gives the answer!

Maybe its best that no one can guess... I mean if you had a ton of responses then that place would be just another over crowded trapps...

Could you imagine waiting in line to rap into Westward Ha!

Nice shot btw..have any in landscape mode?

ok i was told the party on the FA traversed in from the left side of Millbrook along the ledge. Starting off with Millbrook must have been fun.

Yet another great shot, John.

I've never done Old Route. Perhaps those who make the effort to go to Millbrook have more ambitious plans once they get there, and that's why none of your hundred viewers recognized it. But it looks lovely in your photo, and it is certainly historic, the first route in the Shawangunks, 1935.

Imagine Fritz up there in his tennies with a 40 meter hemp rope and a few soft-iron pitons on completely uncharted ground with absolutely no hope of any kind of aid (including from his own party, who were far weaker climbers than he was) if anything went wrong.
