That is really a beuatiful shot, Smike, from a great position. The colors of the rock are really striking. Not the big panorama shot but really beautiful just the same.

From too long ago. Raffa on tight end. Doug Fosdick belaying, Dave Rosenfeld learing down. RC

Agreed! Any takers? Setting up from that same spot would be cake, plus instead of my 24mm pocket camera, having my 17mm super wide would be cool...

P.S. Thanks Chip

This one is a bit off the beaten track, and actually has a few feet of offwidth climbing on it. The impatient as well as cheaters can simply consult the photo properties for the route name, since I forgot to disguise it in the photo title. So, for full credit, you have to name the cliff as well. (Photo by Larry Reynolds)

I would've guessed Bonticou.

You would have guessed Bonticuo, but something prevented you?

OK, language quibbles notwithstanding, AOR wins the prize (such as it is). Dave's Dong is a pinnacle at the (sort of) SW end of the crag (not looking at a map at the moment, so compass headings should be taken with a grain of salt). Nice 5.7 face climbing below the few 5.8 offwidth moves pictured. Some old pins in place that are no longer needed with modern gear. A large cam (I think #4, grey, new Camalot size---maybe a blue will do too) gives near overhead protection at the crux.
