Comments: As Dustin B and Count Chocula say, the upper face is scary: feels like enormous, puzzle-wedged, loose, vibrating blocks hold the whole face together. Don't climb it, or climb it once; the location is amazing. But you can still climb Gambit, get comparable or better location, and avoid the Jenga Russian Roulette at the top. Just use the first belay ledge on the face to cut down and left to the arete and finish on a Rewritten-quality blade.

Comments: Wonderful! My son caught one of those once in the outlet of the pond at E.B Raines Park in Thornton. They look so exotic to be lurking around suburban Denver.

It looks like I'm fudging now or wasn't trying before. But that's the true time and I always felt like I was trying. It saved several minutes to run straight through without changing shoes at bottom and top. Beyond that, I guess you inspired me!

Comments: June of '81. Had the luxury of watching a similar convulsive moment, secure from the belay, as Pat Brannon pulled up oodles of slack and then lie-backed to the ledge. Other party member was Rick Lynsky.

Comments: Very fun bolted face. Steep, well protected, but not sewn up. A couple runouts on moderate ground hold the attention. Well worth doing and a great climb to set a toprope for strong beginners. A 60m gets down nicely, but make sure it's the middle!

Comments: Maybe I was off route, but I felt the crux was some thin crimps and digits up and left just before the traverse and mantle to the final fingerlock headwall.

Comments: I stand corrected; which also explains the grim all-business look on your face. Someone was, at that moment, in good hands!

Comments: Your local department store. :) Scuffing some cheap leather loafers was worth the experience. Some in my group freaked out, but I figured the guards in the machine gun towers were more worried about guys climbing from the other side...

Comments: Fun 20' grovel. Decidedly right-leaning. BETA ALERT: Offwidth humping with left leg; internal and corner edge-pulling for the hands.
