I'd always heard it named Mt. Sinyala (or even Sinala or something like that.)
I believe Bain and Rink have been out and done it and that I have to imagine Ohlman went out there (seems like he had the second, aka the 1st, see below).

I seem to recall in the late '70s Baxter kept trying to get us to mount an expedition out there. It sounded like a total hump just to get out there and then dealing with the tribes, etc.... At the time, I don't think anyone in Flag was aware of the '60s ascent because Scott kept raving about it being the last major unclimbed summit.

Gotta luv the state where you can do the 3rd and 4th ascent of something and on occasion think you're doing the first.

Great Canyon history report. Thanks for the post Bill.

Couple of FAs from last spring.
Sorry, had forgot the camera and so my son bought one of those cheap shoot and develop models.
Cactus Thieves was Derek's first trad lead. Not a bad way to start.

Helter might be 11. I thought the lower very thin dihedral had a couple of very hard moves and thin fingers but I'm not climbing at that level anymore so ...
There is a bit of runout at the top of the thin corner to move right into the hand crack. You first reach the crack where there's a bit of less than stellar corner but sinker hands.
If you do it, don't miss the fun face at the top out right, avoids the broken shixstacks out left...

No pix but getting to the Pit this time of year is certainly more difficult than anything I climb.

Man, without crampons I ate sh#t a good half dozen times on the way down. Way harder than that rig. There's a good 10m section that may as well be WI5. Fun times once you're at the thing though. Perfect weather.

granite mountain is sick...i thought the needles approach was a bit long. AZ's got cacti and all sorts of extra GNARL!
