Tozo killer shot of Haystack. NFB holy sh*t great post. I love elk they taste good. I have climbed in the Tounge but I don't think that I have met anyone that develops there. Is there climbing at the Fallen City? That place looks cool. Jaybro seeing that you like the wide have you done Bonne Homme straight up. It goes at 5.8 but I hear it is really wide and the 3rd pitch of Tugey Wood is a beauty only given 5.9 but it is fist and offwidth with minimal feet for 160+feet. In my opinion harder than the first two pitches strung together which are given 5.10a each. If anyone has a good picture of that pitch it is truely impresive. Here are a few pictures of the Bearlodge and Sundance Mountain from Crow Peak outside of Spearfish. While we are not technically in Wyoming I have been trying to get them to reunite the east and west Black Hills and let us into Wyoming. TEAR DOWN THAT WALL

Yeah Mike, I've actually spent a lot of time at the tower, onisght soloed Bonhomme,done it many times, did Tulgy Wood, McWest, Mr Clean etc, in the the late seventies early eighties, actually climbed El Matador when it was a nailing route, and many times since as a calf burner.

Some of my best friends are from South Dakota, well three anyway. I say let you guys in! Though first you have to apologize for Sturgis and the Yuppie/faux outlaw biker influx every year....

Great climbing in Wyoming! Could be even better if you moved Wild Iris to Nebraska.

Apologize for Stugis, I thought you guys would be thanking us for getting them out of your states for a week. We used to rent our house out for that week and leave. Done some good road trips that way. Before I had a house it was off to the Winds a lot.

I show up at DT and Ed has the biggest scab I have ever seen on a person- had about the same area as a football
Ed was built like a brick sh#t house but he had a tendency to overgrip.
So he's doing Soler with "some Brit"- same old story. He styles the first half and trhen he starts to feel the pump. He can see the chains and he decides to go for it. He plugs in a friend and starts to run.
Bad move
Meanwhile at the belay the Brit is trying to light a cigarette and damn if it isn't windy- needed two hands to cup the match.
Well two things flare out at the same time- as the Brit is cursing the smoldering match he notices the rope beginning to whip around his feet.
He cinches the rope off but not before Ed has taken an 80 foot flying lesson
