Perhaps someone would be willing to do some Mountain Project write-ups of these routes? This would be great for the Mark Richey / Freddie Wilkinson ascent north of Omega as I have found the least information on this particular climb. Icarus, Daedalus, the Minotaur, and Mean Streak all have great topos and route descriptions on other sites and blogs. I feel that our online guidebook is especially lacking as far as Cannon's winter alpine world is concerned. These are some of greatest marks of New England alpinism, and I would very much like to see them cataloged here. Feb 25, 2013

Thanks, for the link ups. Bagleyheavybags is removed. It looked like Mark Richey was on TOM, TOM when I watched a youtube cannon winter ascent of him. Dec 19, 2012
Brad, is this the route by Mark Richey and Freddie Wilkinson you were thinking of? bagleyheavybags.blogspot.co…

Mean Streak is reported to be WI6 M7 and was climbed by Will Mayo and Andy Tuthill on December 11, 2007. Source: alpinist.com/doc/web07-08w/…

Bayard Russell also has an awesome topo of Cannon's big wall section on his blog: whitemountainrockandice.com… Feb 24, 2012

There are a couple of new routes on Cannon. one is left of Omega near the giant right facing corner of Henderson's Buttress. The climbed is called Mean Streak and it probably a WIE7M8? It difficult to say the least. Andy Tuthill and ? did the route. I think it was 2010. The other route was done by Mark Richey and ?. Its recent. I don't know its name or its location. There's a you tube video of the ascent. It looks like there on the south side somewhere. Feb 20, 2012
