Looks fun!

Good looking climb. Man, you guys are ticking off the 50 classics. How does this one rank campared to the others you've done?

Re: Looks fun!

Thank you very much Martin.
I think this line is comparable to NE Face on Pingora with a slightly harder crux. Face looks awsome from afar and the climbing is very good for the first ~5+ pitches. Then it becomes ledgy low 5th with much 4th. Very fun outing though.

Only classics we've ticked off are the relatively low hanging fruits :) Of those, best (IMHO) were Lost Arrow Tip & Kor-Ingalls by big margin.

Re: Looks fun!

Interesting. You liked Lost Arrow Tip and Kor-Ingalls better than Epinephrine and North Ridge of Stuart?

Re: Looks fun!

Epinephrine is not part of the Roper & Steck list. NACLASSICS.com webiste - updated list of classics by G. Clark (>>50) includes it. Lost Arrow (esp.) & KI (to some extent) are pretty unique climbs.

Thanks for stopping by Martin.
