Tim was my brother, so seeing this picture was a gift; I remember him talking about George and their climbing adventures. I am in awe.

Just did this today after seeing it from the road...such a cool climb! Surprised me to see the limestone for sure!

Hi Kathleen Tim was my favorite partner. He was strong, safe, solid, and reliable. We had a lot of great adventures together.

Dug out old journal. Tim and I climbed this prominent dihedral (5.8) on Apr. 28, 1977. We also climbed a right-facing chimney with overhang (5.7) and soloed a 5.6 crack. Afterward, we did a route at the Castles.

Yep, looked at this many times on the road from Denver to Gunnison. Stopped once and climbed the dihedral on a beautiful fall day, early '70s. It seemed like somewhere between 5.7c and 5.8b :-)

Couple summers ago, I reclimbed the dihedral and did the adjacent three bolted routes. The dihedral seemed more like 5.8c+.
