1)Read the rules/info here before voting:

2)I'll start the nominations off with my own:

"Layton-Wolfe. September.05"

 

From the objective, to the route, to the writing - I can't remember a better candidate for "Greatest TR Ever" than Mike and Erik's TR from their FA on the East Face of Mox Peak.

 

4/7 Update: Changed the thread title to better reflect the main idea of this contest.

A couple ideas/requests: Since there are 5,525 TR's, even if someone's read 250 of them, that's only like 5% of the available candidates. I'm personally hesitant to say I've read THE ONE that's the best.

 

Perhaps some of the old hands could post their personal "top 5 favorite TR's"? Kinda separate the wheat from the chaff a bit for everybody. It would be fun to read them, then we could '+1' the TR we liked best out of those lists.

 

Another idea is that people who've authored a lot of TR's could volunteer the one they're personally most proud of, y'know, like those Academy Award ads which say "for your consideration."

 

I agree, TR's are one of the best things about this board. I would enjoy reading more good ones.

- Think about it "Your Favorite TR Ever," or "A really inspiring, or funny, or had awesome pictures" TR. It's all subjective - so don't worry too much about whether or not your favorite(s) could objectively qualify as the best ever.

 

-We encourage self-nominations. If you've got a favorite TR that you've offered, take a moment to share it. If the "Greatest Ever" thing feels weird to self-nominate for, feel free to add a disclaimer, e.g. "I don't think this is the best TR ever, but this was a great adventure that I remember fondly," etc.

 

-Posting your personal Top-5's in the non-voting thread is a great idea. You should start things off by posting links to your own Top-5, Top-3, or whatever.

Right on! I put up a top 9 on the other thread.

 

There are some amazing TR's on here of hard FA's on remote Alaskan peaks, but for me, the "regular guy" stuff a little closer to home is the most FUN to read.

 

Here's my favorite. Nice blend of sporty climbing, humor, and local achievability, with great pictures throughout.
