Luke, I wasn't scared of the rain. You started coming up with all these conditions, so it didn't sound like you were really interested in having me as your partner that day, plus I was supposed to go sledding.

Hamish,

Did The Big Slick ever get repeated ? I remember you guys talking about miles of RP's protecting continuous tips and crimps up a smooth corner.

Oh I'm pretty sure. I remember John and the Chief did it. Plus some brit. joined John one day. Look at the current state of skills around here; I'm sure that thing gets climbed.

I'm choosing not to respond so this doesn't become just another typical stuportopo thread.

If you're ever looking for a spare adventurist Luke, let me know. That is, if you're willing to climb with me based on what you've heard.

So I may or may not have busted something in my hand a week ago; it's still sore so might impede by ability to climb right now..... Should probably get it checked out. Anyways, depending on when that is feeling better, and the weather improves, anyone want to give a go up the Grand? Can't think of a better first multipitch to start the season.

I climbed the big slick with the late great Guy Edwards back in 2002. I led the crux but took a whipper, it was desperate and the next 5.11 pitch back into freeway was runout and scary, Guy made it seem easy and casual. he had a knack for making scary shite seem facile.
we finished with guy onsighting the upperlevels variation.
a great day was had on freeway, RIP Guy.

Guy Edwards and John Millar disappeared during an attempt on the north face of the Devil's Thumb in spring 2003. They're missed.

I believe that Krakauer soloed the east ridge in 1977, after failing in an attempt on the north face. The north face has never been climbed.

Google is my friend, eh?

Thanks Anders! Hey you ever gonna tell us the story of the FFA of papoose 1?

You'd have to check with Glenn on that one. Eric and I believed in 1974 that we'd done the FFA of Papoose One, following the exact original route. But Glenn mentioned a year or two ago that he and Tim had done it in 1967 or 1968. Who knew?

I could tell you about the SFA, if you wanted. And the FFA of Limbo. Not tonight, though - I have invoices to do and gondolas to fight.

Alice Purdey on Papoose I, 1965. Alice was one of several strong women climbing at Squam in the early-mid 1960s.

Note the cool clothing. Note the crappy footwear.

Great photo Glenn. The Papoose has some great rock and equally challenging trees!
