Comments: Oh, I know it is worthless. But worthless can still be fun. After all, climbers are "conquistadors of the useless", so when we don't have a conquista going, exchange of useless opinions is a viable option.

Come to remember, what bothered me about Advanced Birding was the Farris's rating of 5.12b, the same as for the neighboring Perfect Sex. 5.12a probably does not seem so out of place.

Comments: Ha ha! This is fun. I hope this keeps going.

Well, if Cyclops can be 5.12a then, I guess, so can Advanced Birding. But that would bump Kelly's Arete and Perfect Sex to 5.12c neighborhood.

Comments: Holy crap ! -- without the bolts it is just a solo. You haul the rope behind just for rappel and reach the top or die. Now, I guess all the 4-star "classic" ratings are off, too. Dennis Horning and Chip Lee are also listed as the first ascenders -- do they know about it? Was it their decision as well? With all due respect, does Barber even climb still? He's gotta be in his 70's or close.

Comments: I got the angle by leaning hard backwards on rappel with a 16mm lens. I was practically horizontal, holding the rope with one hand and a camera with another. Thinking about it, if you attached something to your shoes (stilts?), you could get really interesting angles.

Comments: Hey Andy -- thanks! Er, yup, you're right. I had Bob wear my dirty t-shirt. His was blending in with the rock behind, too stealth for the pic.

Comments: Thank you, Evan. My pleasure. In retrospect, I think I'd shoot with normal lens (instead of the ultrawide) and stitch a panorama. The sky should be cloudless for that though.

Comments: I won't even talk about what I had to go through to get that shot! All I'll say it involved crawling to avoid drawning in loose powder snow.
