That's a nice crisp shot with great color.

I lived real close throughout the 90's, in Marshall, just over the hill.

NIce nice nice with the mountains.

Going to try to get back to Highlands/Cashiers soon for a really cool shot off the second belay at (secret) of endless NC mountainage changing colors into infinity in the back ground, and a nice mosspad in the foreground, with big purple flowers coming out of it. Probably have Corbett's sorry puss in there too somewhere, to rin the effect, hehe!

Dunno Dirt Daddeo Rodeo,
The picture will have to overcome the force of the words, which stick quite well.
Giddyup!

(it appears me and goatboy have swapped ends on this lodging thing)

Here's My 90's Digs in Marshall (right across from Eldorado Canyon):

Great photo Bob, the first climb I did when I moved to Colorado was in the Garden, dirty and loose just like my women.


How about a few bonus questions.

1.Name this popular route on the backside of something familiar?

2.Name any boulder problem that starts with this pictograph laughing at you?

Goat Man-Boy:
Keyhole?
That triplex of chutes and ridges is unfamiliar.
Only 'dun the Yeller Wall, so I don't have an ID on the Keyhole...

Petroglyph is cute too.

Yes you can. I spend the early part of 80's doing new routes in the Garden.

Some say it's the birthplace of American rockclimbing.

Yah Babee!
That's the Right Stuff.

A buddy of mine climbed 16 pitches in the flatirons with a Welsh Corgi in his rucksack.

I've always wanted to do the first free-solo-with-wiener-dog ascent of the First Flatiron. (I guess it wouldn't be a solo though)

I think these may fit in this thread. A trip to the Wind Rivers a few years ago. (Are they in the Rockies?)


South Ridge of Wolf's Head, an hour before the thunderstorm started.

Casual Route on the Diamond, Aug 2004, this is the 5.7 traverse pitch....
... and here's some snappy dresser on the final traverse to Table Ledge... Edit: bad angle -- the Diamond is steeper than this photo makes it appear.
