Ship Rock two words

Nice. I've wondered what some of the objectives were for this list.

So, Ship Rock: it's two words. The nearby town is one word. Does the guidebook have it as one word? If so, phooey.

Paul, you mean MY objectives or Roper & Steck's? I'm simply putting down the list they wrote since I could not really find a good one on the web elsewhere before (& book is out of print). Just another list although probably one of the most famous (?).

Yeah, I've copied exactly what they have in the book - I'll double check Ship.....

Re: Ship Rock two words

If R & S have it as one word they are wrong and this means they didn't double-check.

I figured it was their list not yours. Who cares what YOU want to do. :)

Looks good so far

Nice idea. I personally think that all of the grades should be updated to the established and agreed current standard. For example, the North Ridge of Stuart is a 5.7 now.

One idea for the list may be to include a little speal on each. For example, what makes this climb special or unique? Just a thought.

Re: Looks good so far

Thanks Martin.

I was sort of planning on keeping it simple - just provide links to whatever of these have pages on SP (and there they can look up the "modernized" ratings). Maybe couple of photos. My approach is that this is just a bare list that they've put together. Also, I only did a tiny handful of these climbs and so can't really give insight/thoughts on a bulk of these (other than copying out of the book).

If someone more qualified steps up, it's all theirs.

I think there are updates

Hi Radek, I think there have been some new pages added so you can add links...Sir Donald for example. Awesome page!

Re: I think there are updates

Hi Michael - thank you for checking this out. Yeah - I know, I need to get around & put some time into this page :) Give me a couple of evenings at home & I'll take care of it.
