the wall behild and on the left in this pic has a great line-up of old 5.10 and 5.11 and 5.12 splitters. Hong, Bruckman, Olevsky, et al. 80's stuff.

Entrance to Grand Wash? The 5.12 Hong line on the left wall is BADASS.

"Big Rocks!"

"Long legs!"

Not a hater, just not a doer.

Want some pads? Bicycle racers like these kind.


Good shots, every body! It's what bouldering is for--viewing.

Yes! He did that thing in the spring of '84 with Karen Budding. Can't remember the name, but there was a plaque at the base when we found it. 12a maybe? Uber-classic, thin fingers to wyde and everything in between...full-value route.

Thanks everyone for this great thread! Best thing I've seen on any climbing forum.
Just did a three day weekend up there, wow........
The sunrise on day one was so f'in good that I could hardly complain about getting rained out all day. Curious about a couple of things. Any one climb the second pitch above super sharp crack? my buddy backed off it at the manky old bolt, due to not having enough big stuff to protect the looming chimney. Can you get any pro up in that thing? Also does the supper amazing, long, small hands fingers crack to the left of ssc have a name other than f*#k yeah!?

nice bump, doom! there's some gold in them henry mountains, eh?

i've only done the first pitch of the super sharp crack aka Burning Taco. but according to the old topo i have it says:

P1 5.10 fist, P2 5.12a thin crack, P3 5.11

the thin crack left of SSC/BT just says "5.11a finger crack" on the topo. the bolted arete to the right of the crack sorta inside the weird cave-slot thing is called the Wedding Arete (11a).

I bet the central tower gets climbed more often than some of those very excellent looking probs upthread.

True, and not for lack of trying...but I'll wager that an ascent of a major Patagonian tower sticks with you a lot longer than the latest genereric v13. Just sayin. Although there are a few boulder problems that in my little mental landscape will reverberate long and hard and forever, due to the confluence of time and people and place I associate with them.

Thing is this: It's all climbing, and it's all good. The one caveat I'd add is that these twelve-person deep rolling camarillas following the same tired paths to the same tired problems will not get what I'm trying to say here. You need to downsize and explore no-mans-land to have the adventure.

I'll remember this day, this problem, the place I was at and the people I was with forever:
