With some trepidation I submit a couple photos here from me and Larry Scritchfield's January ascent of The Labarinth. We got off route at one point, and thus this may not even be a part of the original route, but this does give on some idea of what its like inside the dome. This is a great adventure. BTW, someone commented that this route is the easiest way to the summit. I have not done Cadaver, but I will say that there is  a lot of route finding and fair bit of commitment with this line. Also, retreating would be a nightmare with lots of options to get your rope stuck, and the crux is old. old school F9. But its worth it. Oh, photo credit to Larry Scritchfield

I've added a photo of the two first ascenitionists that is from the Museum of Moab. It was taken by Fran Barnes. The museum also has one of one of the two guys just about to summit. I'll try and get a copy of it from the records room. Its from afar and you can see the dust on the rock near the new bolts. I think we need to keep in mind that desert climbing required a different mindset then. There were no large cams to utilize when going up the crack, etc.

Kimmmmyyyy J. and I had to snip the old chain out cus it just wasn't right... 1/2 inch bolts  worth 10,000 pounds down to a $1.29 coldshut rated to 900 pds when brand new (years ago). The only way to upgrade the system to at least two rings worth a lot more than that was to remove the old and start over again. Hopefully the new stuff will last a very long time.

An anchor that leaves a lot to be desired. If we assume these things went into the hilt, then there has been a lot of erosion over the last 27 years. I put in two 1/2 inch bolts, but left these relics for historical purposes.
