Northeast Face  Sucess!

With Steph, 4 climbs, 4 nights, good trip. This was easiest of our selection and sort of a break day when we moved camp for Black Elk on Warbonnet. I would not hesitate to solo this line, everything was comfortable and clean, little to no slab really. Nice features the whole way. We thought we started early enough only to get behind three parties who were all already on route by the time we got to the base....thankfully they all lets us pass. We simul-climbed the first half of the route for that reason and did the route in under 3 hours. I give it an average rating in the NA 50 Classic selection.

Top climb  Sucess!

One of my fav's ever. Sustained and fun. Did the .9 variation, old school .9! Amazing rock quality and protection. Two smallest Tri cams everywhere! (passive) os.

My First 50 Classic Too  Sucess!

Full value for 5.8. Some really neat features throughout with some pretty strenuous moves to keep you on your toes. I still smile thinking about the grass hummock pitches. A spectacular line in an even more spectacular setting. Be weary of the "Easy Chimney". Argueably, the crux of the climb. Climbed it with AJones. We summited around 12:30 pm and just missed a small storm. Start early and move fast.

An Easy Chimney?  Sucess!

An excellent classic route - the crux for us was the "easy chimney" - and I'm serious.

excellent climb  Sucess!

Great climb - follows the given topo well, just keep going up the right facing corner! The wide 5.8 protected well with a #3 BD cam.

1st 50 Classic Jul/00  Sucess!

My only trip (so far)to the Winds culminated with this one. We were the 1st party of the day and made it off before the storm, but the guys behind us were on the summit during a raging T-storm while we were chillin' in camp! What a difference 30 min. makes!
