A Not So First Ascent - What did we climb?

Placing a cam? Slotting a nut? Slinging a tree?

Hey Saxman, what's the percentage chance we're at Eagle Point Buttress?

That's what I get for assuming Artsay is perfect. My worldview was crushed that day. I still haven't fully recovered.
The theory of evolution is just as stupid as the theories of gravity and electromagnetism.

Yeah I noticed that one and WoD are kinda off in the "Interactive Map" thingy. Also when I think the GPS coordinates listed on the map are backwards--because if you just plug them into Google maps it sends me to the middle of Antarctica. I figured out that if you just switch the order of the coordinates that works.

I know this is an older thread, but I recognize the crack. It's really obvious from the road when you're driving west from Gladie. Always wondered if it had been climbed and assumed it had. Wish some crusty old traffic would fess up on the history.

Sounds like a great adventure, but I haven't the foggiest what that was. Best way to find out: post it as a first ascent on the online guidebook. The FA will correct you. :D

After looking at that map again, I know a 15 minute aproach from the top. My first dog "Moe" is burried at the top of that clif.
