That's the first part....but remember the rest:

Over 280 pages, thousands of views, and wide participation, you seem to be the only one having difficulty with the concept.


This is the thread where we play the guessing game of where or what is the climb by name. What about where or what is the mountain? I really don't think I am that far off that I need to start a new thread "Guess The Mountain".

1. It is in the Gunks.
2. It has to do with climbing up to the top.
3. It will have a picture.
4. It will need to have an answer.
5. It will have a hint.
6. You should know what it is, it is something worth knowing.
8. It involves the same game principles.
9. To solve the riddle you must ask only these self same people that are on this very same thread.
10. Just agree with me and I promise I will try reduce the number of posts I make. I do not want to waste any more of your time.

Directissima was going to be my guess too, but I am horrible at remembering details of climbs smile

Can't be Le teton, the angle is wrong. I'm voting for Feast of Fools. And chances are VG that Matt Calardo knows the route name.

Here's a new one for you.



Talk about sewing it up! That's not a clue, it is a sincere comment upon how much pro I placed. No foreshortening, just a lot of pro.

That's the most sense you've made in weeks, Don!

I figured it was an easy one but that was really fast.

I think one gets it right away or doesn't get it at all.
