As masochistic as it sounds (IS) my life's climbing goal is to do a wall there.

I originally titled the thread "Nature's way of saying...".

Then, like a deer in the headlights, saw the thread drift accelerating in my general direction.

Then I thought to myself: "I don't miss poison ivy and ticks"

Possibly the most feared climbing destination in the lower 48?

I had my 15 minutes of Barrovian pegmatite micro-glory during a season down in Glenwood Canyon. Crossing a band of that shit'll put a knot in anyone's knickers. Some of my least fond memories of stacking hexs originated mid-band down in there.

I wouldn't mind doing Southern Arete but I might have to be a lamo and pull on gear.
