Comments: You can clearly see the big roof of the second pitch in this pic. That is the roof Chuck is leading in the 1st pic.

Comments: According to the Adventure Film folks the search has only been suspended for bad weather. At least the American lads will go back up to continue. Slim hopes for a happy outcome but they mean to bring our brothers home. Jonny learned to walk in Tibet. It is powerfully poignant that Jonnys last steps were in the same country that his first were.

Comments: Yikes Moss! Reading that chilled me to the bone. Perhaps only an old GunnyBun can realize just how epically brutal that would have been. Glad you are still here.

The fact that Bob leaving wasn't your first clue is a wee bit baffling I must admit.
Mamma always said "stoopid is as stoopid does".

Comments: Fairly sure I led this nice climb in the later '70s. No idea if it was a FA or not but the conditions I saw were exactly as MossMan described, cobwebs and grapple.

Comments: Thank god! I was worried the place had cooled off.

I am sure you were all "Aware of Alcohol" like the posters says.

Comments: In that case you should know that when I grow up I am going to look just like Brad Pitt.

Actually I amazingly remember that day. There were several cameras that day so there should be other shots out there. I also think I recognize myself in the tree climbing shot. But I know I recognize you in it.

Comments: Hey Allen. Great shot of Chuck!
Two things though.
1: It's a good thing that was easy ground for Chuck because he has his leg entangled with the clips.
And 2: I think this is actually the start to Zig Zag.

Comments: The 135 feet is from the ground to the anchor. It includes the first half of the approach route. Fine Whine goes straight (5 bolts) up the overhanging wall above the ledge that connects AC and LH.

Comments: When we did it small cams didn't exist for us either. I do remember some wickedly cool, "text book" tricams, but I don't recall if we even had any cams in those dirt bag days. A couple of decades ago that little bolt on the 3rd pitch actually inspired confidence. All in all a stellar Black Canyon route. It has it all. Great position, phun climbing, a little spice, and a Black Cayoneering style exit. What more could you ask for?

Comments: I really enjoyed this route though I didn't lead. A couple years back I was hanging around and met some nice folks up at the AC corner one day and they let me clean it. I thought it was a brilliant climb. The critical crystal is such a cool feature that is worth two stars all by itself. The free hanging rap to the ground let's you know how steep it is and explained why my arms were so pumped. This is a very worthy climb...for a sport route.

Comments: Scott, yes Tom's dog Charley (what a great dog) took the big, big one off the traverse from the top of the main buttress. That traverse is really desperate. It is comprised of steeply slopping, boiler plate slabs covered in ball bearing gravel. Charley some how survived fairly unscathed.

Comments: Did a great 5.10c alpine route on this with Pulaski back in the seventies.
It goes up the left edge of the white arrowhead shaped feature in the photo above.

Comments: Ha HA HA funny picture. The dude in the red shirt looks like he just ripped a loud one and the guy in the foreground looks like he can't believe he did it in mixed company.
