So which of the 3 routes did you like the best? How do they all stack up in difficulty?

Ahh, thanks Aimee. That’s a very nice comment. Maybe next year they will actually have my name listed as one of the instructors, haa ha ha.

It's funny how they give you all that free beer and then expect you to get up at 6:00 in the morning to teach a class. Good thing I'm good with the rebound.

Hey Brian, well... I guess I liked Latitudes the best because what we were doing just seemed so far out there and didn't know what was possible. Latitudes did have some soft (rock quality) pitches but all three of them did as well.

I think Rodeo Queen has just as hard of pitches but Latitudes was more sustained. Also, Rodeo Queen was more beaten out. Tales of the Scorpion was definitely the easiest of the three.... but, that's really not saying much. It's still HARD.

"i forgot to mention that you were the first person to climb all the streaked wall routes... you're one sick and twisted pirate!"

That is a very proud Trifecta. Congrats Ammon!

**“Nice one, bro” I said “how far did you sail?”

“I don’t know, I guess 50?” he replied

“Did you start to hear the air?”


“then you went at least 50. After 50, you start to hear the air rush by.”
