Several of us have been working up a page for the Ozarks:

I think it's ready for prime time now. There are still gaps -- let us know if you'd like to contribute.

Posted a new route page for the Charon's Garden Trail in Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains.

Image

The route page was created to accompany the newly revamped Mount Lincoln page, which was recently stripped of all its information by its former owner.

Yeah, I saw that on the news. My first thought; if we can get 24 SPers to cough up $100K ea, we can have an official SP hangout in Chicago. You know, so we have some place to go after a long day of climbing. :lol:

I've only been down to the Ozarks once. I don't know the area well enough to contribute right now but if I have something to add in the future, I definitely will.

Tomorrow would mark a full month without a new posting in the entire Midwest region board.

I couldn't let that happen.

What's everyone been up to? I know . . . leaving the Midwest in one way or another. That's what I did.

I was just looking at this the other day and it made me sad also.

I'm back to working a boulder problem I started last spring. I was on it roughly 1x a week last year from may through August. It's a 200' traverse that is pretty over hung.

I think this will be my year to get it. I hope. I have too much time into it to let it go.
