That's intense Travis. It reminds me of some faces at Devil's Lake. The Face between Michael's Project and Callipigeanous Crack has two different routes going up it and the face is no more than five feet wide. There's the Flatus situation too: Flatus, Flatus Direct, Flatus Triple Direct, and rumors of a Direct Flatus Triple Direct. I guess necessity is the mother of invention. Dec 15, 2007

Just a bit of funny history: In maybe 2004/5 a guy (G.F.) FA'd the most contrived problem I have ever seen outdoors. He climbed the route between the small fissure/crack that splits this block (and defines the right side of "heel hook problem") and the boulder on the right. The width of this piece of stone in maybe 2.5 feet. The crack itself is off, the boulder on right is off, and i think the arete as well. Im talking about the "face" between these features. This problem goes at around V5. We cleaned it and worked it maybe 3 days before we sent. Seems like one can get pretty starved for new routes after living in the area for a while, especially if you dont have the time to take a longer trip. Dec 15, 2007
