Comments: Just curious, if you found the bolts so offensive why did you clip them?

Comments: That is not the only Keating Beating that the Gunnison area had to serve up. The other was the food served by SAGA food services in the WSC campus dining dungeon, Keating Hall. Back then we referred to SAGA as the Soviet Attempt to Gag America. Of the two outings me thinks that the gnarly granite might have been the more palatable.

Certainly the "impaction" that poor Jon suffered was "in the end" minor compared to a steady diet of "dorm food".

Comments: Phil Wortman wrote;
I feel compelled to voice concern over the "third class" ratings in the black. I've always known third class as only needing three points of contact, with little or no chance of serious injury

So Phil I think it's like this.
The classical definition of "3rd class" has meant 3" points of contact on easier terrain". The term has also been conotated to indicate "No rope on moderate terrain".
Back before all the color coordinated pointillism (i.e.; red po... more >>

Comments: Limbo stick girl is Kimberly Tschappert. Another one of the coolest people I ever met thanks to Gunnison. Oooh I had such a crush on her. Come to think of it I had a crush on all of them.

Comments: OK WHO are the cast of charecters from top to bottom and left to right? So far I know the following.

1: Peggy
2: Jennifer - 3: Scott M
4: Rosholt - 5: Gilby - 6: Kimberly
7: Pearson - 8: Jack P - 9: Pulaski - 10: (?)

#4 is Rosholt. #7's arms aren't beefy enough for Johnny. Those arms likely belong to Pearson. Unfortunately the shadow makes it hard to see red hair. But you can see that same shirt in the limbo pictue. I know b... more >>

Comments: Scott call Sharp End directly and ask. Their number is on the website. I snagged the last copy Neptune's had and showed it to Boulder Mountaineering so they would order some asap.
Scott do you remember that you are who introduced Jim Nigro and I all those years ago? What a long strange trip it's been....

Comments: The 2nd pitch of Air Conditioner is a full value not to be missed Taylor Canyon crack classic. Also there is a 3rd pitch up and around to the left. It is a wide crack through a roof called Aqua Dog 5.9. This is a great way to finish up any of the Baby Face routes.


Location: CO : Gunnison : Taylor Canyon : First Buttress : The Upper Wall : Christine's Dream (5.12)
By: phil broscovak When: Aug 26, 2007

Comments: When I did the FA the rating of 5.12 didn't yet exist. Christine's was noticeably harder than anything else around so after great agonized debate I rated it 5.11++. It took a long time before it got a clean ascent by any one besides me. So, there was no opportunity for consensus on the difficulty. I remember desperately wanting someone to 2nd the route, but it turned back a lot of strong climbers even on TR. Eventually it got repeated, I think by Chris Begue, and some sense of the difficulty sta... more >>

Comments: Hey Scott after all these years it is good to hear you are still out there. Needs a Bolt and 2 Bolt Wall are different routes. 2 Bolt, Another Fantastic Harmels Funk Fest is farther up river past the 2nd Buttress. 2 Bolt is (imho) more serious than Needs a Bolt even though they are about the same difficulty. Great stuff you have been posting! Let's see those ole time pics!

Comments: Except for all the springy things instead of pins it kinda looks like a skimpy rack for climbing in the Black in the old days.

Comments: Sunday July 1st. Azure blue sky, warm temps, no wind! Condition were near perfect for late spring. Except for a few sections up high most all of the snow was ideal for kick stepping. Try to climb in the shadows as the snow will be firmer. Lots of good, moderate, mixed climbing. First constriction is tricky rock for at least 15' then fun mixed. What would be the 3rd rope length was melted out scree and talus. Each of the constrictions offered grin bustin', fun climbing. Occasionally utilizing a f... more >>
