today was 10F cloudy, windy and a typical Laramie Spring Day.

A good day to get the GPS Coordinates for Scapelli's climb that Freddie, others(Cupps) and I could not find during the Vedauwoo Sushi Fest 2012 on a hot August day. Zach said he could walk right to the place. He and I did get there while unfortunately there was snow, sometimes two feet, it did leave a track of the circuitous route he used to get to the base and top of the climb. Specter Man is readily visible from the climbs top.

So here too is the posting on Mountain Project for all you I phone carrying climbers looking to find and climb Behind Blue Eyes.

There are going to be long lines there now once the snow melts

put this into Google Earth: 41.19274 N, 105.38062 W
(Dingus' UTM translated into lat,lon)

For Specter Man see Dingus' correction to my guess (since deleted) below

I remember trying to relocate some wide problems to show Bob. They were
somewhere close to the Summer Palace. Maybe it was just the wrong time of year, or just a dream. Somewhere just waiting...

Ed Hartouni,

I think Specter Man is at a different place than you report.

41.19620 N; -105.38161 W

This reading agrees/correlates with the results from WY Topo of the "go to" command of my gps when I was next to Specter Man using the Behind Blue Eyes waypoint for the destination. Namely .23 miles at 174 degrees. I was not using Google but the USGS WY topo.

I think you're right Dingus, I eliminated my guess... your's is in a more likely spot on GE... (you might want to loose the negative sign, the "W" designation is - the "E" designation which is the conventional sign)

I could be wrong, but I think the takes/mixes that are now on Who's Next, as it's sold on CD and digitally, are different from the ones that I grew up with and listened to thousands of times.

I think the version posted above on YouTube is the "alternative take" that is included on the remastered album...

I've probably also listened to that album thousands of times over the years... and I'm sure it was on the set list when I saw them live at Winterland in 1975... and that was probably different than the version that was on the album... all in all it's nice to have all those different performances.
