Comments: I think this is an appalling development. I can't believe that real climbers either through ignorance or arrogance would endeavor to diminish the proud tradition of fierce ascents in Escalante. Chuck would eat them for breakfast were he to encounter them. They need to take a good hard look in the mirror and become educated as to the history of the area. There are plenty of obscure choss piles that the weak of head and heart can drag down to there level.
I say hands off the historical areas like ... more >>

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.

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.

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?
