|This route was first climbed during the winter of 1976-77 by Kevin Donald and International Alpine School students Chris Goplerude, Sandy Mah and Ned Overend. We rapped into the river, pulled our ropes and climbed back out. At the time, even though the climbing was moderate, it seemed like quite the keen adventure (even if somewhat contrived). This was pre-ice park and T-U-I-B was one of just a few continuous river to rim routes. We heard the song by Bob Dylan that evening at the Outlaw Bar in Ouray and decided on the name. Great times with great people. Cheers! Kevin Donald|

Was this the mountain biker Ned Overend???
I'll be darned--it was:
Got to meet Overend at a muddy buddy race in Denver back in '02--cool guy, now even cooler!
