Don't try this at home  Sucess!

I took a spectacular fall from the top of the 10th pitch and landed on the ledge at the top of 8th. Broken arm, serious damage to both ankles and knees. We held it together but it was an ordeal to get down.

2 months later the cast is off and I'm ready to get back.

Iron Messiah  Sucess!

Chimney swept it with Nievia...when you climb it this early, it is quite dirty...a real water run off area...

Great Route  Sucess!

Climbed Iron Messiah in spring of 2007 (?). Great route until the last slabby topout pitch.

Iron oxide Messiah

Fantastic route. I placed my hand size gear too early on the last 5.10 pitch, that made for an interesting romp up the iron oxide varneshed crack. We skipped the final pitch as the aesthetic climbing was over and the hour was getting late.

Iron Messiah  Sucess!

Swapped leads with Scotty to the end of the Dihedral. Greate Route.

Iron Messiah  Sucess!

Way to hot, but what the hell, literally! A classic, really enjoyed it, but I love dihedrals, chimneys and the like, particularly when it is hot. We combined 1 and 2; 7 and 8. Makes a lot of sense. Route goes relatively fast. Watch for that "out of order" rap station that saves you a rap in my descent notes. Super day on the rock switching leads with Zach, as always.
