Jay on the scrubbin ascent. April 09.


Decent problem if you ignore the little ledge and the boulders below you. Move up slabby face on decent holds and high feet.


Face right of Take My Picture.


2 pads preferred.

Hey Chris, do you mean face right of Take My Picture? Good looking problem anyway- nice work. And is this a salute to the famous Kris Gorny?

Oops, right you are. Not left. No wonder it took me 6 months to find the ABC boulder (which I finally did!! Woohoo!) Absolutely a salute to the man himself. I considered linking to the 2LiveCrew video on youtube but thought perhaps that was crossing some line...

Glad someone did this, I did a bit of scrubbing when we were on Take my Picture last year. Thought it would be harder though!
The top out in the pic of Chris is how we ended Take my Picture, I think there would be a direct finish to this too, perhaps that will be the harder part.

Yeah I thought it would be cool to stay right instead of trending left but figured people would follow the easiest line on the face to get to the top. Agree it would be a lot harder to stay right on that little corner thing, with what looks like a big, insecure move to the top. By the way, nice job on Take My Picture. Kinda scary.

Perfect! I suggest the direct finish be called "Scary is my Middle Name". Next time I'm out I'll take it down, unless one of you scalawags gets there first!

Well, count me out, it's all you. I'm still having occasional ankle pains from my most recent battle with gravity from the top of the Backbone ridge-- last October!! Too bad about the snow. Yesterday was awesome, as was Friday.
