I see a Brownie but who is on the clean looking crack?

So, that's Wild Turkey? Jeez, I don't remember even a little about it. I DO remember drinking Wild Turkey after the FA (or was it before?). Thanks for the post up, MH2. I'm gonna save this one.

Even though I can't remember anything about it, my guess is that the guy in the picture is doing it wrong side in.

....wrong side in.


All I can add is that's what I thought and boy was that a big mistake! Face toward Garibaldi not Vancouver if you want success!

Yes, great picture, Ryan. A different distance and living planet eco-tones instead of just the RR ambience.

That pale patch above Brownie's shoulder:

Thanks guys, the start used to be way easier when that sign was there :-) Alex is the climber.


So what's up with last train to Hicksville? Any one ever climb it besides chief?? It's got a leaver biner as all his 5.12 routes do, but damn it's a pretty cool looking line.

We climbed Chewbacca early this summer and thought the same -- great climb in a great location.

There is lots of terrific climbing on that wall and it's great to see old routes being cleaned up and new routes being put up. Some really cool stuff just to the right of Chewbacca, for sure.

Does anyone still climb "Poultry in Motion"? I remember that as a full-value route, and with all the traffic on Skywalker and the other new and refurbished stuff on Gobsmacking Wall there must be hundreds of climbers walking by it on the descent these days.

I followed perry up Hicksville - excellent techy stuff deserving of a retro scrub much like some other Beckham masterpieces down there. ..... Strawline and Loggers are Poodles Too, Also Andrews Happy Hooker and his other thin crack other side of Quagmire. Also Invertigo.

Another interesting possibility is Caboose arrete. This was bolted then chopped sometime in the nineties but I don't recall the politics.

I see its raining out there?

I remember the Caboose arete listed as a top-rope problem in the guidebook. The name Keith fukin Reid attached to it as I recall vaguely.

I take back my earlier assertion. Right-side-in is looking like the right way to do Wild Turkey. I should have just shut up after telling you I don't remember it so well.

It's a beautiful-looking climb...beautiful, wish I remembered it better.

Wild Turkey is a beautiful line on brilliant rock in a great setting. But it is the Devil in it that makes it so attractive.

Might not help the memory, but here is the rest of the main pitch.

I can see two guys in the picture. Which one of them is the Devil?

I wish i had stayed long enough to find out. I had just dropped Robert off at his van and was taking the pictures from down by the highway. It was evening and I had a perfectly good reason to get home though I can't remember what it was.

Here's an easy one. Bonus points for the climber (because I'm not sure...)

Yep, the bolt ladder on Mushroom. Seemed pointless to me then. Seems pointless to me now.

Clipping my way up that ladder was far less enjoyable than nailing the crack below, that's for sure.

Yes, that was the way I first climbed Mushroom -- with a rack of angles and a hammer. Weird, but pretty normal at the time.
