Good collaboration on it. I was trying to remember the small rib visible on the Keyhole route. Time to revisit this one.

Yes, this came out great, if I don't say so myself!

It would be fun to scramble up Keplinger's couloir, the route of the first recorded ascent in August, 1868. This expedition was led by one-armed Civil War veteran Major John W. Powell. The recon of the couloir was made by an L.W. Keplinger. The following year Powell made his pioneering boat journey down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.

I did the Loft route last year. At the time, I thought a particular stretch was a lot harder than class 3. Now I see that I must have been on that 4th class variation. I know that I did not drop down under that wall.

Thanks for the clarifying photo.
