  1. Stuart West Ridge - more beta than you can use No kidding, you should of just told people where to put their hands and foot holds
  2. That sexy photo of Goode shows the Beckey route(NE face?) It looks like it had a major rock collapse above the ice part, unless that's normal for how it looks in early Oct? looks kind of snarly, or the route could be a little left of that.
  3. I loved this route, even if it was done in a major summer storm and we were benighted. Felt more like 5.9 to me although like with any route such as this many little variations are possible. Someone needs to snatch the FWA. Be a nice prize

    Really? what routes dose Mr Smoot have for Buckner and Sherpa?
  5. [TR] Chimney Rock - East Face (U-Gap) 08/24/2020

    Looks like Smoot's to blame. People love lists did not read earlier comments so nevermind
  6. Well at 5.11a/b maybe so but it would be 5.10 A1 if I tried it. hell these days probably 5.8 A1
  7. [TR] Forbidden - E Ridge Direct 08/26/2020

    I believe in early season it's because of icy places and snow covering some of the rap stations. Always thought of trying it in winter but never tried it. yet...
  8. So you guys climbed left of the lower north ridge start?
  9. "We left the parking lot at 8:00 AM, and got back at around 2:00PM the next day." WOW! espic
  10. [TR] Johannesburg - 1957 NE Rib 08/01/2020

    Well Kinda do because the I-VI grades are supposed to take into account the overall seriousness of a route, but a grade solely for seriousness is true
  11. I do not know exactly where their route goes but I am guessing this is the aprox line as he mentions in the post when they emerged onto the north ridge they were surprised they missed the access gully to the upper north ridge and they were close to the gendarme. I think I have seen photo with some steep good ice in the lower ridge. PHOTO CREDIT ED COOPER Also at the base of the gendarme they finished on the NE face

    Is an old school III+/IV and new school IV+ It's hard to give any climb in the lower 48's a grade of V with the hardest moves being 5.7 and mostly 4th class. Maybe in Canada or Alaska but....
