thanks Dan,

AntiChrist - I bet that even the ST Trump supporters and ST Obama worshippers can agree that the full B-Y experience only is achieved on lead. But, awesome to climb it no matter what.

Scotty on the right blend of coffee weed and ciggies.

Good chance Rush is on the boom box.

It is pretty cool that there is a free climb in which, after all these years, it is possible to name those who have led it. Usually the complete lists are kept for big stone and top-end sport climbs. But even these, after a limited number of ascents, lose their status. Iconic.

New post idea....All the euro trash who took whippers or bailed off the BnY?

or...all the valley "locals" who are blowing each on this thread but never stepped to even try?

I proposed going to TR all the pitches of the BY
Too much work - just bring a sky hook and toss it in whenever to take a break - style of the FA.

The wall is nearly grid bolted to the left and right, only reason to pick this one is ego.

Dude - all I see is a giant fuk'n slab - go anywhere, it's all the same - but preferably in the general direction of wherever someone decided to put the next bolt.

so, the bachar-yerian goes to the summit. at least one of these names on the list did not go to the top...alex honhold only did the first two pitches. i suspect that some others rappelled from somewhere and did not finish the climb.

so, yeah, i'm sure bachar would get on people's cases that claimed to have done it but did not top out. so, there you go...

Yep ^^^. And the last pitch is pretty scary with almost no pro too, just not very hard.

Hi steve - i suspect that would be a really impossible task to slice and dice the sample to those who topped out.

Now I'm wondering if the list above is low by 50% or a factor of 2 or a factor of 3.

mike, i know from being there in the 80's and nineties that there were about 2 or 3 ascents a year. except for the euro factor, i bet that list is about 75% complete for domestic climbers.

yeah, to hard to splice between full ascents and less-that-that ascents, but just making a point for the future ascensionist that in bachar's eye, you really have to summit medlicott to claim a real ascent. ss

I'm just an observer and fact collector for a book being done on TM. In interviews, among them Mike Waugh whose done the B/Y and You Asked for it a few times,"If you don't top out you haven't done the route" referring to Bachar/Yerian.

John said the third pitch was hard and required some real mental focus: like the first and second. 4th pitch was also a bit out there.

The fourth pitch is the only reasonably protected pitch as it climbs a crack. The last pitch (which can be linked with pitch 4 using a 70m rope) is indeed pretty out there, but is in character with the rest of the route.
