You bolted all of them in a single day? Before you went to CT? Wow.

merrick, When you say "pinkpoint" of a crack, do you mean that someone placed the gear for you, but you still lead it? That's hard core.

Seriously, I would love to see 'em....

Well, I guess I can't "name" them, because they dont' have names....

But...

There are 2 giant roof cracks (30 feetish) near Cliffview resort that are beautiful, and much harder than 12, I'd guess.

There is another roof crack near the same area that is absolutely devoid of faceholds and goes out this scooped out roof to an absurdly overhanging headwall....all on fingers or tight hands. Gotta be a high 13..or harder.

And...I guess it depends on your idea of a beautiful crack. I don't get very excited about a crack that looks like RockWars. Looks boring.

So...

There is a giant, A shaped roof at a wall near Roadside (can't remember the name). It may not be as hard as it looks...but would definitely require crazy fun moves...

Cloudsplitter has some long super thin overhanging crack that might be cool....can't exactly remember...it looked impossible last I saw it.

There is a really sweet super thin arching crack near Wall of Denial. Requires tiny fingers or crazy crimpstrength.

There is a 20' fingers to fists roof at Clearcut Wall that seemed impossible last I touched it....but could definitely go someday....



Also....look at ThunderChicken.....that thing is classic. It took a lot of cleaning to get it there though.....it was bush covered and vine entangled till Aaron decided to get up there and uncover its promise....

Simply put, you're just makin dumb statements.

There's also an amazing looking line at Mariba Fork. There was a thread on it a long time ago. Here's a quote from the thread:
mazzystr wrote:Did you walk to the far right past a large crack that looked like a large wall? between two huge huecos and in front of a flat topped boulder is a small hand crack 2feet right of a small dihedral going up about 40feet to a ledge. then a 100foot leaning handcrack/dihedral. this is the prettiest line i've seen in the gorge.
Beautiful, hard as hell looking line. Thin...but it would go.

I saw something on the same side as the entrance.Not sure its the same line but it looked hard as hell. I only remember the top of it. Overhanging off fingers. I think its left of the entrance
