Comments: This photo should be a poster for ice. And I hope people know just how really good Bruce Hendricks was/is. This guy has an unreal track record!

Comments: Great video above - Mooner. Nothing better than miles of quartzite.

I see you've got the "a' cheval" down.

Comments: Can you imagine a four pitch, mostly vertical ice climb sitting across the parking lot at Snowbird or Alta or Vail?

That's about what this monster climb in Canada is. Despite an hour hike up, it's still one of the best.

Canadian Ice - the States don't even compare.

Comments: This is an unbelievably cool and huge climb. No one ever on it. If this climb were in Provo Canyon, Ouray or close to Vail, it would be climbed several times a day during season.

It would also be the best climb by far in either area. Bigger and better than Ames Ice Hose and almost the equivalent of Bridalveil in Telluride.

It is a long hour plus hike - but just look at these pictures taken by Kris Gorny and Dave Rone.

Comments: So cool, I'll bet one of the first 10 or so ascents.

Brilliant route by the way. Still a classic.

Comments: May be my favorite climb ever! Probably have done it over 100 times. Sometimes two or three times in a day. Before breakfast, during lunch, after dinner. Climbed it in the dark, in the sun, in the wind, in the winter. Perfect length of hiking approach, perfect angle of climbing, perfect holds, perfect down climb, perfect everything!

Comments: The 'Thumb' on Funffingerspitzen is one of the best of the short moderate Dolomite climbs. You can take the lift to the Demetz Hut for a few Euros. The approach is literally five minutes. I found the climb to be 9 pitches with 6 rappels. Steep and exposed but at a moderate level (5.6/5.7) if you stay right on the edge. I took a light 7mm, 150’ line for the rappels. The first two are obvious from the summit south. In the notch at the base of the second rap, follow a line of polished rock a... more >>

Comments: I haven't climbed this either - even though I lived in Boulder for a couple of years. That's not good!

And that's how I like to belay the second - with 10+ feet of slack out. Makes them feel like they are leading.

Comments: Great shot, cool fall day. Of all the times I have been up on the Thumb, I don't think I have ever summited. That's not good.

Comments: You can scramble down from this route by heading north along the ridge crest. Some downclimbing at the very end before hooking up with the trail back to the base - should you ever find yourself on top without a rope.

Comments: A funny story of my first attempt at the Diving Board - probably 1975:

Mark Ward and I drove over from Provo, Utah to work the classics. XM, Outer Space, Blackwalk, etc. Mark was belaying from the Pigeon Flake while I lead pitch two. I ran it out a bit much, and just as I pulled into the ‘cave’ belay, my hands slipped off and I kicked myself straight back into space. Went the whole pitch, ending up about 10’ below the belay.

Both of us had on two inch swami belts (the standard 'red'). Everyt... more >>

Comments: I think it was Summit - around 1975. Mark Ward and I did a little article on Little Cottonwood and we shared slides, that's how I got a copy of this old picture.

Comments: This was a popular test piece as early as '76. Did it that year with Rick Wyatt - off width master.
