mattp Posted March 19, 2015 Share Posted March 19, 2015 Nice one, gents! As to the name: there has been for 30 years or more a little "tension" since "rock climbing" naming sensibility was transported to "alpine" climbs but there remains some sensitivity. Places like the 'Gunks have had climbs with joke and innuendo names for at least 50 and maybe 75 years but the alpine realm has been different. I know, there was Watusi Rodeo, 30 years ago, so it's been a long time since we called every new MOUNTAIN route the left hand variation of the west face of Mount X, but I understand why somebody would not appreciate the humor in naming a route after somebody who shot a president. Again, though, NICE ONE GENTS. And Wilkes-Booth it is. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
