Based on the lack of comments, people are clearly way more psyched on the 20,000th ascent of the NEB...

Hats off to Tony and Jacob !

I think most of us are just afraid to look into the face of pure Badassery. It's hard to wrap my mind around it, that's for sure. crosseye

I think it is an awesome and amazing accomplishment, and definitely warrants more excitement than the 3500th climb of a dog route. Very cool and it is great to see people pushing boundaries and exploring.

From Jacob's Facebook: "But also so stoked I don't ever have to go back up there again...".

Makes me think the Jason is right. Route just needs some traffic now! LOL

I want to know what the deal is with the old McGee attempt of the same route that featured reportedly 12+ climbing.

Did they avoid it?
Was it deliberately overgraded to keep other suitors away?
I know Craig had a worry that Tommy and Sonnie were gonna show up and steal his line. But then he eventually gave up.

They just found a better way. There was a fair bit of speculation on where the logical free climb would go between us. Good on tony for making so many trips up there to price it together, and great that Jacob was stoked to go up there. Both those guys are great.

Somehow I think our Chinese Puzzle wall line, while harder, is a bit more plaisir smile
