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!

You are both (of course) correct. Regarding not doing it... I've met people up there heading to the chains who didn't know there WAS that last pitch Great little pitch.

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


Yeah, and I think I see a pin sticking out near the left side of it, if that's any help?

Looks a lot like Horseman to me.

It was a long time before I even knew there was a P3 to Maria. It's easy to miss and P2 is well worth it even without P3, especially now that the P3 anchor is gone.

gabe, i'm going to guess that it's one of the 5.8's that i've done like four times for the first time ever because i can never remember that i've done them.

for that matter, i can't remember where they are either.

helpful, huh?

I've climbed them with Evan Marks (twice), Lawrence(once, also we did the 5.9r to the left as well) and once with the british guy who fixes clocks.

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


Looks like the top pitch of Horseman to me. And GO, if the bonus is your pretty girlfriend in a hot pink tank, well, while I can certainly appreciate it, I feel a little um, guilty? ;\)

Or did you mean the beer?

Okay, Horseman it is, then. Thanks for the help, Dawn and Nerdom! Beer's on me!

And Nerdom, sounds like you're still interested in that smack-down after all...

I was thinking it was horseman until I saw this other picture looking back at the first belay.

It's hard to make out the prominent nose that is visible in gabe's picture.

Seems like a different angle. If you look you can see the carriage road in Gabe's photo and the pile of packs that's always at the base of Horseman/Apoplexy.
