Not to hijack the thread, but here's a little factoid regarding the "classics" on MP: The classic list for any area is actually a computer generated list based on an algorithm that analyzes page views, stars, and ratings.

Amazingly, the algorithm works!

It always surprises me how accurate it is at capturing the most popular (or most revered) routes at an area.

My partner and I decided to create this feature one time we were in Red Rocks. We were tired of hiking into the long canyons, and wanted to do a great route in Ice Box Canyon (short approach!). Thus was born the MP "classics" algorithm. The great benefit of this list is that it is available for ALL areas, including sub-areas (aka Ice Box Canyon, Wonderland of Rocks, etc.)

Here's an example: the top routes in Lost Horse http://mountainproject.com/scripts/Classics.php?id=105720588

ps. First 16 routes on the Tahquitz/Suicide list... check! I could probably do Insomnia with some tears, but the rest are over my head :)

Only done 9 of them, but do I get extra credit for having done 8 of those by 1970? Oddly enough, the one on that list that I ticked most recently was L. Ski Track. Great climb.

I did one of the early ascents of Stairway to Heaven, back when it was 5.9 A4. Beautiful line with some serious exposure at the top.

Hacky is a fine climbing warm up stretching out the ol stiffies.

I've done 7, they are all 5 star routes in my book and I can't wait to do them again.

Its an OK list, done 19 of 20. (Yes, one with a couple hangs).

Not sure Paisano belongs on the list and how many people have even done it? (Maybe if I'd done it I'd feel differently.)

Sundance

Iron Cross

Fred

And others are certainly worthy and better than some listed.
