Comments: Took one of the longest whippers of my climbing career on this pitch in mid-'90s. Belayed by a French sport climber whose English was not the best, I did not do a very good job impressing on him how runout it was going to be while standing at the belay. I think he got a much better impression after I lobbed off.

Comments: Better for its grade (and more sustained) than The Opportunist at Staunton State Park.

Comments: Would be a 3 or 4 star route if bolting and anchors were re-arranged. Kind of awkward now, both up and down.

Comments: No need for complicated descent beta. Best exit strategy: One rope/one pack, Kiener's, Summit, N. Face, Camel, retrieve second pack stashed at bivy sites, car, beer.

Comments: 2nd pitch: great pro (including a #3 1/2 Camalot), super fun, very steep.

Comments: Vertigo roof is shorter, with one hard move. No one move is as hard on Psycho Direct, but the burly factor goes on much longer, and the pump starts to stack up. Canyon classic with 2nd pitch of 3 OF.

Comments: One of the first ascentionists of this classic climb, Mike O'Brien, passed away within the last couple of years. I learned this about a week ago when on a road trip to El Rito, N.M., Henry Lester pulled out a collector's quality, Swiss-made, wood shafted, north wall hammer to pound in the tent stakes. After remarking on its beauty, Henry informed me that he had acquired it from Mike's estate.

I doubt that when Mike bought this hammer as a young man in the '50s for his alpine adventures that ... more >>

Comments: 5.9 slab, to 5.11 cross through gastons, to cryptic crux, to slightly insecure, 10+, hanging arete. Well-protected. Super fun.

Comments: Several bolts added to the first pitch, now eight bolts + two for the anchor, make it well protected. This makes a great pitch on its own, and is 12a IMO. Not chipped, glued, or chained as far as I can tell.
