Also a spicy 5.10d put up by Eric Weinstein and Dave Anderson in 1975 just right of Peter Pan's first pitch.

Werner isn't too big on R rated face routes so this one might not be on his list.

The real deal:
Pimoa Cthulhu
Pimoa Cthulhu
Credit: Gustavo Hormiga

Etymology

Pimoa is derived from the language of the Gosiute people in Utah and means "big legs". Gustavo Hormiga, who named the species, derived the specific name from Howard Phillips Lovecraft's fictional deity Cthulhu, which Hormiga writes is "akin to the powers of Chaos".

Distribution

The range of Pimoa cthulhu is restricted to areas of Mendocino and Sonoma counties in western California. Within that range the species is associated with redwood forestland habitats such as redwood stumps and logs.

Description

Male Pimoa cthulhu are distinguishable from related species by the unique cluster of thick spines found on the cymbial projection. Female P. cthulhu are very similar to the related species P. vera, but are distinguishable by the long sausage-like epigynum which is narrower and laterally compressed at the distal end. Males of P. cthulhu have a cephalothorax length which ranges from 4.4 to 5.7 millimetres (0.17 to 0.22 in) while females range from 4.0 to 6.1 millimetres (0.16 to 0.24 in). Both males and females are very similar in coloration, with a light to very light brown cephalothorax that is slightly darker towards the margins and an abdomen that is dark gray with four dorsal whitish spots. The males have a brown sternum, while in the females the sternum is reddish brown. While the females have legs which are dark reddish, the male legs are covered in long setae instead.

"Big legs" indeed on that spider. Looks like the type of bug that leaves quite a welt if you get bitten by it. Lives in California of course.

The "My Little Pony" incarnation is hilarious.

I keep finding weirder and more random stuff every time I look.

Darth Vader Cthulhu? Really???

Geeks have way too much time on their hands.

It was either adding to the political moron heap, screwing my second (tempting) or bumping a mythical creature... well, the decision was made by a guy who just walked into the gym wearing a Cthulhu for President shirt... last time he was here I swear he had a World of Warcraft shirt on, his buddy wears Tapout shirts...

And I am surprised Ed Hartouni hasn't already scolded us:

Cuthulu (sp), below Peter Pan 5.10d R, Eric Weinstein et al 1975.


Dale Bard and I on the climb, thinking we were doing a first ascent erroneously:

I cut and pasted these without permission from Tony's post in the birds thread. I suspect he would want me to add that they are Masked Lapwings.
