This photo was washed out, so I played with it in ...


Start at the base of pillar, and climb directly up arete to ledge, top-out.


Pillar just left of Sloper of Dadaism.

I think it's the pillar to the left? Not right.

Axiom is the arete in the center of the picture. This one hasn't been done by that many people...

It doesn't really look like it in the picture, but this this is BIG.

Tried this guy again yesterday. Was able to make it up to a decent sloper above the feature. Maybe match that and pop out left for the jug? Not sure but felt pretty fun.

Chris sent this today. He melted its soul. It was impressive. Whether or not you consider certain things off or on vary the quality and difficulty...just do what's coolest. ENOUGH WITH DL ELIMINATRY!!!

Did 2 ways, staying right hand and feet on the right arete and using left hands sharp crimp on face to pop to jug, then also Paul's heel hook beta (see photo). Both ways are probably different from the original line, which I think goes straight up the arete to the jug up and right.

Nice send Chris. Parts of the right face were still wet on Saturday. With your 4 star I must come back (plus Slope is too fun to pass up as well)

Another fun Zschiesche problem! I'm not sure why I waited so long try. It climbs better than it looks.

In the same way that Venus Rising is Arrowhead Arete with bad beta.

And Sex and Chocolate is just the first half of Sex and Chocolate Direct / Cherry on Top. None of them are great problems (arguably, none of them are problems). I think these should be noted for their historical value and not that much else.

Maybe should start adding "Q" grades to problems in SW Wisconsin based on how questionable they are.

For Example:
The Little Flatiron (V4 Q0)
AAA (V7 Q5)
Cannons (V6-V11 Q10)
