That's so funny, good route choice too. That things super fun. You guys didn't consider those easy raps into the gulley, or would that mess with the fun scale too much?

Sorry to disappoint boys, but South Arete is a Baldwin/Mutch route, 1962. Glad that you enjoyed it. As MH knows, Uncle Fred made the 2nd ascent, and aided up beside a section which Jim and I had done free. He called his 20 foot aid variation "Math Crack", and reported it in either the AAJ, or the CAJ, or maybe both. This was somewhat backwards, as people usually tried to free aid climbs, rather than using aid on free climbs.

See the new Bourdon book P166, attached, or the old Ourom book, not attached!

And it was only 5.4, not 5.9!!!
:) H.

Nice job on Finestone Cowboy. Lookey scarey.

how did Fred do the second ascent(using the direct variation) in 1959 if the first ascent was done in 1962?

Fred did a different route from Mutch/Baldwin. Just which of the several cracks Fred did is still uncertain, I believe.

1959 is a typo by Marc B. Correct date is 1966.
Uncle Fred reported "Math Crack" in the 1967 AAJ, page 366. Info courtesy of MH.
On a positive note,you guys likely did the "Math Crack" variation anyhow, as it is slightly more direct. If so, you did a Beckey route.

Glenn. What is uncertain is how UF et al reached the base of Squamish Buttress, above Broadway in 1959, but it was definitely not via S Arete. In the 1967 AAJ he acknowledges that Math Crack was a variation of an existing route.

Hey cool history boys, Hamie- why didn't u guys go direct up that sweet crack? Especially if it was only 5.4 :-) I think S arÍte is the most under rated climb on the apron. Much more interesting climbing than Calculus at the same difficulty, I guess the 8' of OW keeps the crowds at bay.

Agreed. But he climbed something....
