Comments: M-earle You were indeed in the desperate and often mistakenly taken 2nd gully. It really does look inviting doesn't it.
Newberry almost died descending the 2nd gully in a freezing storm. He rapped into a frozen pond only to have the ice break. The weight of his over stuffed haul bag took him underwater and held him there. He thrashed desperately till Madman could rap to him and haul him drenched and sputtering back to life. You don't want to get caught in those gullies in a storm.

Comments: Scott, if you could e-mail me that pic, I could draw in the line and repost it.

JP was lucky, really lucky, that day. If he had not moved when and how he did, it would have been a head shot bullseye. My recollection is that his schnoz was badly mashed and he had to still climb a day and a half more. He was a tough hombre for sure.

Comments: After more recall, it was actually 2 routes one done twice and one done with a variation. The best route was with Scottie on the eastern flank. I remember 3+ pitches of good climbing to the summit. The crux of which was a steep right facing dihedral that was really stout. It must have been hard, since Scotty took a winger off of it. Scotty always moved so fluidly that I was taken off guard and had too much slack in the system when he pitched. It was a longer fall than necessary. I would probably... more >>

Comments: Wow Larry & Karsten this looks like great good adventure. But isn't this route and Lady Wilson's Cleavage on the Cleavage Wall not the Horseshoe Wall?

Comments: To answer Crotch;
When we did GLB I didn't want to slog up the Willy's way. So while Geoff, Sybil and Newberry hiked the climbing and bivy gear that way I 3rd classed with a light summit pack up the left Tornado to Sherwood. So I guess I did get to do the first link up.

Comments: That is not the only Keating Beating that the Gunnison area had to serve up. The other was the food served by SAGA food services in the WSC campus dining dungeon, Keating Hall. Back then we referred to SAGA as the Soviet Attempt to Gag America. Of the two outings me thinks that the gnarly granite might have been the more palatable.

Certainly the "impaction" that poor Jon suffered was "in the end" minor compared to a steady diet of "dorm food".

I feel compelled to voice concern over the "third class" ratings in the black. I've always known third class as only needing three points of contact, with little or no chance of serious injury

So Phil I think it's like this.
The classical definition of "3rd class" has meant 3" points of contact on easier terrain". The term has also been conotated to indicate "No rope on moderate terrain".
Back before all the color coordinated pointillism (i.e.; red po... more >>

Comments: Limbo stick girl is Kimberly Tschappert. Another one of the coolest people I ever met thanks to Gunnison. Oooh I had such a crush on her. Come to think of it I had a crush on all of them.

Comments: OK WHO are the cast of charecters from top to bottom and left to right? So far I know the following.

1: Peggy
2: Jennifer - 3: Scott M
4: Rosholt - 5: Gilby - 6: Kimberly
7: Pearson - 8: Jack P - 9: Pulaski - 10: (?)

#4 is Rosholt. #7's arms aren't beefy enough for Johnny. Those arms likely belong to Pearson. Unfortunately the shadow makes it hard to see red hair. But you can see that same shirt in the limbo pictue. I know b... more >>

Comments: Scott call Sharp End directly and ask. Their number is on the website. I snagged the last copy Neptune's had and showed it to Boulder Mountaineering so they would order some asap.
Scott do you remember that you are who introduced Jim Nigro and I all those years ago? What a long strange trip it's been....
