Thanks for sharing Coz. We kept wondering what you guys felt while up there. A number 4 friend eh? Yikes. Crazy how a freak show like that can turn into one of my fondest memories. Adventure sure has its place. With that said, I don't think Jake nor I would have gone up there if we'd known what was coming. Though, I guess maybe we had a hunch.
I love the name and have found myself saying it sometimes out of the blue. Doubt I'll go back.
Now "The Big Juan" on the other hand....................any comments?

Nice contributions

I've looked over there from Yosemite Point Buttress (and a misadventure up West Arrowhead Chimney) and thought of how great it looked and how many routes might go there (all the while suspecting there must be a reason why not)

Peace

And to think, this thread was going at the same time as one asking "Are climbers as bold as they used to be?"

Go the Bob!

Bump. I must have been on winter vay-cay when this made its first go-around. I'm glad I found it!

WOW! Sweet trip report.

I've taken a quick gander at that route and given it some consideration.
Hmmm, after the sounds of it... ???

I've got a list of to do's so long I'll never get to all of it and that one ain't high on the list you see.

Anyone ever climbed Blade Runner?
Anyone want to??

Sweet! 2:15 in the morning and I can't sleep so I come here and a grand memory is brought to my attention. Thanks Jefe!

Bladerunner? Caunt(gaunt?sp?)/Settlmeyer route goes up right of the Spire? Doesn't make it to the top, or does it? Yes, I want to do it. Looks great and is my style. When................who knows.
Glad this thread has been enjoyed. Hope more folks read it. Fun stuff.

Good night.

PS look in the upper right of that pic and one can make out the wave like feature we stemmed across. Wow!

If you guys are looking for another crazy route, check out the Affliction on the North Face of Higher. The first four are very rad as I recall. One pitch is overhanging and your lay backing up four giant stacked blocks. Donīt fall!

The upper part is great, sporting an 11a OW, 11c fist and a hard boulder problem off a ledge. All capped by a huge roof, that ends the climb.

It was another Walt adventure, done the same week as Mi-ne-ah.

I am sure it would go all free at mid 12, hint hint FFA.

Coz, I think (could be wrong here) that some of the Montana boys have been up there. It may even be written about on ST. No se.
Patrick?
It does look great in the guidebook as well as when looking up or over at it. You guys were nutty fun lovers. You still are I imagine.
Peace!

Also this was just a great ass memory I want more to share it.
