Comments: Wander here a whole summer, if you can. Thousands of God's wild blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted.
- John Muir

It is with a heavy yet relieved heart that I end the first act of the Million Cranks in the Danks Project. I will be going on a road trip to climb classics in Lander WY, The City of Rocks ID, and Smith Rock OR. Everywhere I go and everything I climb for the next two weeks will not compare to this place I... more >>

Comments: Success! Red pointed all five of the most fabulous routes on the left hand side of The Thunderhead. I started with Bitches and relaxed and rested my way through every square feet of the difficult stuff. Pussies and Bitches went down first go as did Zephry II which went down without a fight after I figured how to rest before grabbing those small holds at the final crux. A bad foot placement caused me to take the ride on Smoke. After a long rest it went down second go. Cataclysm went into the shad... more >>

Comments: 6 Thunders Update:

A nice evening session allowed me to figure out that Reigning Pussies and Bitches can be sent first go without a warm up. I decided to climb Zephyr next and sent it on the first go as well. Getting these two longer, pumpy routes out of the way first might make this "enchainment" project of mine totally possible as long as I can catch good rests and overcome the next two cruxes up the hill. Trying to string all 5 together this weekend.

Comments: Six Thunders In A Day Project:

A three week weather delay caused painfully horrible climbing that led to only 4 out of six climbs attempted and multiple falls and hangs. The following day I led the 11b right out of the gate and fell three times before taking it to the anchors. Sent on the second go. Took down Smoke and Mirrors on the first go and made it all the way to the last bolt on Zephry II before pumping out. Attempted Bitches just once and hung twice. Attempted Zephry II a second time an... more >>

Comments: There is a ledge at the base of these routes that is covered in grass and dirt. There is plenty of room to belay but it is a good idea for the belayer to attach themselves to a cold shut at the base of each route.

Comments: For all the Star Wars geeks, this information is straight out of Wookieepedia.

Choobies was a colloquial term used to refer to one's self or one's rear end. The expression "pain in the choobies" was often used to explain something that caused discomfort or was otherwise troublesome.

As far as I know, Choobies was never used in any of the movies but fans on the Star Wars book series will appreciate the vocabulary.

Comments: Leave the trad gear in your vehicle. As of this year Ice Box is officially a pure sport climbing area with modern bolts and brand new hardware.

Comments: Loved it! Will definitely be putting this route into my spring training rotation from here on out. Sick moves, semi-rad exposure, unusual rock texture, a short nonshitty approach, and one hundred plus feet of clipping bolts make this one a must do.

Comments: Finally sacked up and bought a 70 meter rope and did All Tuckered Out and Tuck And Roll in one glorious, long pitch. Good fun!

Comments: That would be either Split Her or Booska. More than likely the latter since Waldo appears to be heading left. Good times!

Comments: A populous resident within Spearfish Canyon, the Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura) is also known as a "buzzard". It can be identified in flight by the tell-tale white pattern under the wings and by the fact that it is more "tipsy" in flight when compared to other raptors such as falcons and eagles.

Comments: There are some sick new routes at Ice Box now. The Canyon Crew's future plans to renovate some older climbs with new hardware will soon make this area one of the best roadside crags in South Dakota. Come check this place out!

Comments: Not sandbagged in the least. It's easier than Classic Crack, easier than Over Exposure and probably a bit more difficult than Hrum Hroom but definitely easier than Waste Knot. I am glad the bolts are there, however, at least two bolts are close to features that do accept cams and nuts. Sweet flakes and jugs even though crimpers are there early on and are needed for many of the moves. Would be an excellent lead for someone who just crushed California Boys but doesn't have the trad gear placing sk... more >>

Comments: This truly is the route that all other Spearfish Canyon 5.12a should be judged by. It has it all and then some. Absolutely, positively the sickest line I have ever done. If you only have one morning to spare on your road trip to our fine canyon, start your session with Tasting Time, then do Indecent Exposure, get on Slabbath and cool down with either The Beast or The Conch. You will not be disappointed. For me this was a cool, August morning that I will never forget. Thanks for bolting Black Sla... more >>
