You wanna' look like this when ya get old!
Heinous Cling (12a pitch only)- I keep falling and can't link it. I first spied it in 1995, then tried it on a trip to Smith in 2003, then got on it again when I was there for a long weekend in October of this year.
Instead of 10 climbs next year, my project is 1 climb in 10 (or more) years! I may have to move to Smith Rock and beat the route into complete submission...

Starting the fourth class downclimb.  Photo by Ted...
My list is mostly local since I don't anticipate much road-tripping in 2008. It's also ambitious, for me, as such lists should be.

10. Ultimate Linkup - this is essentially the Ultimate Everything route on The Chief, but with extra pitches at the bottom and top making for an amazing 24 pitches of 5.9 (with an optional 11b variation near the end).
9. Borderline to Angel's Crest - this link-up is good training for Freeway, I'm told (for the long-day endurance, not actual technical difficulty).
8. Alaska Highway (north walls of The Chief) - this thing sounds sick, but it also sounds like a great goal.
7. The Incredible Journey - For a good sport project
6. Black Water - For need another good sport project
5. Flight of the Challenger (at Nightmare Rock) - just in case those other two projects are successful
4. Crime Of The Century - still need the redpoint.
3. The Roman Chimneys - the proper way to finish off The Grand Wall, and essential for working towards the ultimate way to do the Grand Wall: start with Cruel Shoes to the Split Pillar, and the Roman Chimneys rather than escaping via Bellygood Ledge.
2. North East Buttress of Mt. Slesse.
1. Freeway - may have to do the Lite version first and then go back for the full, but whichever way, this is the route that motivates my training.

Wow, this is great to get me thinking about what I want to do next year, I really need to come up with more goals...

Two long red rocks routes that have been on my mind -

Woman of Mountain Dreams on Mt. Wilson
Levitation 29 (of course)

Sporto limestone for sure, but I really don't have anything in particular in mind, I just love going to new limestone crags. Maybe Piston Bully up at chadbourne for a summer project.

I've gotta come up with some more long trad routes, but I kind of lost my balls this summer and started sport climbing more after a couple scary situations. So I've got to get back in the sketchy awkward trad saddle somehow. If I get back to Squamish, Freeway would definitely top this list!

Finishing up Elusive Dream at the King Wall.  Adir...
Thin Finger--Index, WA (hopefully going to do it tomorrow)
Heaven's Gate--Index, WA (unfinished business)
Heart of the Country--Index, WA (Sent)
Even Steven--Index, WA (painfully close)
Propaganda--World Wall I; North Bend, WA (proj.)
Blackened--Smith Rock, OR (proj.)
Chain Reaction--Smith Rock, OR (a time-consuming investment)
Moonshine Dihedral--Smith Rock, OR (haven't sunk a jam in it yet)
Exasperator--Squamish (Sent)
Screaming Yellow Zonkers--NH (too wet last time I was out there)

Don't think I'll be making it back to NH before the new year, so I guess "Zonkers" will have to be tabled until '09.

Broken Wrist, Check
Dislocated ankle, Check
2 trips to Mexico, Check
1 trip to Costa Rica, Check
1 Month working in China, Check

Back to the hospital today - looks like a broken hand.

Considering all of that, I only got 1 of my 10 routes and It'll be a while before I can climb that hard again, I suppose.
