Is it Zo roaster, like roast beef, or as in it's "zo roaster" on a south face in summer

Or Zoro aster, like the spanish word for fox+ass+ter

???

Bump for Bain's lead of the Twlight Traverse.
A somewhat serious pitch in the freaking middle of nowhere.

SFace route doesn't see too many ascents.
There are now two other very noteworthy routes on Zoro.
Check out MP if interested.

Thanks to David Lovejoy, George and Dave are working together to recall and organize their adventures so that I can come and record the discussion as part of my historical work through NACHA and the Elevated Lives Project.

I just sent Dave the link to this thread a few minutes ago so if you have some questions for these estimable gentlemen or a story that you would love to hear retold, this would be the time and place to toss that log on the fire.

I've done the regular NE route a couple of times. Any one out there on the South Face recently? Just curious.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dave Ganci and Jerry Robertson at the third Granitica Festival a little over a month ago. Rick Tidrick couldn't make it but I am pretty sure that he will come to the fourth Granitica Festival where we will be taking an in depth look (scuz the pun) at the history of climbing in the Grand Canyon tentatively scheduled for March of 2016 in Flagstaff.

Lots of discussion about Zoroaster coming up at the Festival. Rick Tidrick will be talking about his first three ascents of the original route (including a winter ascent) along with Dave Ganci who will then join George Bain to talk about doing the south face. For dessert we will sample a 5.11+ offwidth that goes up near the descent route with Eric Meudt, Bill Hatcher and with a little luck Carl Tobin contributing.

BBST. Some of the articles about Grand Canyon still stand out, mostly by Ganci.

edit: Bill Hatcher? Need more info on that.

Bill was in on the first attempt to free the off width route and photographed the effort. I hope that he will come and talk about that adventure and his impression of climbing in the Grand Canyon.

Mr. Hatcher took some exquisite portraits at the Baboquivari Granitica Festival and I would love to have him shoot what will undoubtedly be a splendid assortment of Canyon rats at this one.

Thanks Steve. I climbed a bit with a Bill Hatcher in Oklahoma. He was a portly guy but good. He drove like a mofo. Wonder if it is the same guy.

The Bill that I know has never been portly so I think you climbed with somebody else.
