Thanks Core and Dalguard.

Chazman, can you give us a hint or two on your pic? I have no idea where that is.

Core, thats right at the start of the oft-neglected third pitch of Beginners Delight

Irish

ooops I didn't realize that I cut in front of Chazman. His looks like the last pitch of Maria.

...and yes Irish you are correct. Oft Neglected though? I would think that if you've gotten that far you'd want to climb this ultra-classic pitch. It's one of those routes where the next pitch is better than the last.

I thought I was going to have to pull the view back a little bit to see more of the route, nice job.

Lol, that was one of my first leads. Started to rain just as I was going around the rooflet. Fun fun fun


I said oft-neglected because I see so many people rap from the anchors off to climbers left, rather than finish it out.....

Yup, looks a bit like that to me, too. Which means it must not be, since I'm always wrong on these things! By the way, that last pitch of Maria is oft neglected too. And it's also fantastic!

Why would people neglect the crux pitch of a climb? Not doing the last pitch of Maria means you really didn't do Maria at all.

It's not on purpose. I know at least two people who couldn't figure out where it was. Plus, it's an easy place to bail from.

Similar, I suppose, to the folks who bail from the crux pitch on Moonlight, after not being able to figure out where it goes (known at least two folks who've done this too).

But enough of this chit-chat, back to business.

Here's one with a little added bonus to it:



I do not actually remember the climb we were on at the time!!! So if I get a definitive answer, confirmed by a second person, I'll buy you both a beer! I know for sure this was in the Trapps. I kind of remember being, oh, halfway down, that day. But then again, it does kind of look like the end of Horseman, doesn't it? I don't think it is, though. Actually, I have my theories, but I'll keep them to myself for now.

Your help is appreciated!

Cheers,

GO

"Neglect" is much different from "we tried but couldn't figure out where it goes" or the simpler "we couldn't do it".

Regarding the photo, the block at the bottom should be a hint, but I can't place it.
