Comments: Well, not quite the picture of Long, Bridwell, and Westbay in front of El Cap...but close! :-)

I know who the crazy nut stacker is on your right, but who is the big, less scraggly guy on your left?

Yeah, until the run out 5.6 turns into wet run out 5.8+ because of a wrong turn.

Comments: Yep, looked at this many times on the road from Denver to Gunnison. Stopped once and climbed the dihedral on a beautiful fall day, early '70s. It seemed like somewhere between 5.7c and 5.8b :-)

Comments: Boy, I was down there in January for about 3 weeks awhile back, never saw any weather close to snow. It was warm and balmy t-shirt weather the whole time.

How normal is it to get snow there?

Comments: FA in 1976...hmmmmm, I must have oldsheimer's. I could swear that I did it 2 or 3 yrs earlier, and that it was in the '72 High Over Boulder, must be thinking of something else.

I remember doing Friday's Folly on the 3rd and telling my partner how much I liked that vertical jugfest, then I thought he took me to do Alice as the next step in vertical jugs.

Comments: ^+++++

I agree Eric, although I think that it might be fist-size dependent. BITD, I solo'd it and then when caught in a rainstorm after the crux, downclimbed it in the rain, but the crux jam just fit my fist, and I was a lot more flexible then (could walk my feet up the crack and stand up with my weight solely on the jam).

Comments: Not Lizard Head I think, stuff to the right of it looks like the Sierras and "Lizard Head" looks like it could be in Patagonia, Yukon, or even Himalayas.

Comments: Hmmm, seems like you'd have to try pretty hard to make it 5.7, I think you could get around those spots pretty easily.

Comments: Don't know what the climbing is like, but I vote this as the best group of route names, as a whole, that I've seen! Or should I say, they're the the Gritised!

Comments: Calling out Steve House, Josh Wharton, and Hayden Kennedy? Sheesh! I would think that you've lost any credibility right there.
