Old thread, sorry. O Face....? Is this that blank looking face left of Cronin's arete at the hill? If so, how hard are we talkin' here?

Also on an unrelated note, does anyone know if the massive arete to the right of red letter day has seen an ascent? Doesn't look too hard, just looks like you have to have some pretty big juevos or no regard for your own life.

O-Face: Just left of Cronins arete. Start on 2 small crimps with large right foot(if i remember correct). in the 9 to 11 range.
also has a sit start project that needs to be climbed.

Thanks J. I went up and looked at it yesterday and it seemed as though all the holds just stopped 3/4 of the way up. Guess I will just have to go give it a try.

Any idea about the arete just right of Red Letter Day?

3/4 of the way?? You have the vision my friend.... I have to pretend just to see any holds at all on that face.

No Sev, no vision here. I was just fortunate enough to walk by after sombody who posessed said vision, but lacked the necessary strength so gratuitously left 3/4 of the holds chalked. :D

Hell yeah STFU! I have been working jack horner for a few months now. Too bad I'm not an anorexic WNBA player so I can use your beta. :cry:

Short, fat troll? Weak, I expected so much more coming from you.


But in all seriousness...... Great video. It's super inspiring to see someone crush as hard as you do. Thanks for all the hard work you put into developing LCC. You put up some ultra classics.


PS. I absolutely loved you in The Nightmare Before Christmas :D

The arete to the right of Red Letter Day has not been climbed, to my knowledge. It has been tried a bit. A nice landing would help it see some, if any, traffic.

Wow, it isn't very often you come across a line in LCC that screams to be climbed like that arete that hasn't seen an ascent already. With the history of the canyon, and so many strong climbers that have put so much time into developing it, I figured it had already been done. It looks like this is one of the rare exceptions.

The landing would take some work, it is pretty intimidating as it is right now. Sounds like fun! Thanks Monk.
