Mountain project list these as the top ten;....

Anyone done them all....

1. N.Face River Tower
2. Kingfisher (Colorado Ridge)
3. Phantom Sprint on Echo
4. West Side Story on Cottontail
5. Sundevil on Titan
6. Lizard Rock
7. Fantasia on Oracle
8. Ancient Art
9. Cobra
10 Finger of Fate on Titan


I still need to do West Side Story, Fantasia and River Tower (saved the tough ones, didn't I......)......that Fantasia looks too scary for me though....probably pass on that one.....but you never know....

River Tower was going to be the next route we did....(edit but I don't think it was the NF route)

I wasn't thinking I was qualified to comment.

But I have done 4 routes in your top ten.

Well, let's see....

River Tower, climbed two routes on this beast but not, sigh, the North Face.

Ancient Arts. Climbed this a couple times:

Ancient Arts. Windstorm.

Cobra. No pics, but climbed in a raging windstorm day. Too stupid to realize, while at the base, that the top would be moving and terrifying.

Lizard Rock? Soloed, led, several times.

Titan's Sundevil? Soloed 20-odd years ago. No slides scanned as yet. Not that they are any good-too gripped.

Finger of Fate? Climbed with Strappo, 20 years ago.

And lastly, more recently, Chris McNamara, and ??thingy?? White (sorry), summit of Titan, during ASCA cleaning/rebolting effort.

All I did was get in the way and slow things down, but got a couple pics.

Almost there. Shy only by the North Face of the River Tower. And that's not exactly on my list of must-do routes.

If I want a mud bath I'll go to a spa.

At least there I can easily wash it off.

Todd,


Interesting list!

I have done everything but The Cobra and the N.Face River Tower.

Here are my excuses...I always just walk by The Cobra on my way to someplace else. I will have to do it this season I swear!

The N.Face River Tower is a manky bolt ladder (much like that route on Doric)...got no desire to do it. The Flow is a great route! That's the one people should be doing but it's a bit harder than the N. Face. My buddy Joe just did Rasta Wall...he said it was great as well.


Here is my top 10 list of Fishers routes (that I have done...):

1. Beaking in Tongues, Oracle
2. Weird Science, Kingfisher
3. Brer Rabbit, Cottontail
4. Death of American Democracy, Kingfisher
5. Fantasia, Oracle
6. Sundevil Chimney, Titan
7. Phantom Sprint, Echo
8. Finger of Fate, Titan
9. Stolen Chimney, Ancient Art
10. The Flow, River Tower (I know it's not the Fishers proper...but...)


BTW, I haven't done Worlds End (yet) and this should FOR SURE be top 5.

Get you ass out there Todd!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOO HOO!!!

There is a lot of adventure in that list.

I've done all but the Cobra and the Sundevil.

Now I'm in CA and they seem so far away.



How about other areas?

Who's done all of the...

Courthouse towers in Arches?
Argon
Gossips
Sheep
Babel
Organ

Green River towers?

Towers alone the White rim? This would really be impressive.
Monster
WW
Blocktop
Islet
Chip
Dale
Hardscrabble
Charlie Horse

Towers in Taylor Canyon?
Aphrodite
Zeus
Moses
the T Mare

The Mysteries?
Doric
Citidel
Gothic?

Valley of the Gods?
North
Arrowhead
Eagle Plume
Tom Tom
the 2 Puttermans
Tides of Mind
Hidden
Lady in a Bathtub


So many good times out there and so little time.......
