warmish (part of the same geological feature but not indian creek) but no prize.

Its a summit not much bigger than what can be seen in the photo.

Its a tower but not one of the fisher ones. Featured in one of those old books on "50 classic climbs of nth america" (or a similar title)....now thats a really big hint.

Now that is super warm - we did castleton the day before this pic but this area is still a bit of a drive from castleton.

I'll see if anyone gets closer but if not i may give it to you....

sorry only realised the "50 classic climbs" was a red herring as it didnt appear in THAt book but another similar one

Given the route may be seen as obscure I can't really see any point in stringing this out any longer.

It is the summit of the Moses tower in Canyonlands and we did the stellar route Primrose Dihedrals to get there. One of the most memorable climbs ive ever done and after looking at the photo I can't believe we carried mustard to garnish our lunch to the summit.

I'll never forget when 20m up a 50m clean crack pitch seeing these strange parallel grooves running all the way down the crack I was jamming in - I called to shelton only to be met with "yeh if you fall the cams never bite they just drag down the crack till they pop - its worse if its just rained"....(BTW it had just rained)

Second thing I'll never forget is that the final 5.11d offwidth pitch was meant to be bolted...but all apart from the first one just off the belay had fallen out....and belatedly coming to the realization as to why why shelton was so keen to lead the first pitch....

its all yours sara

Argh. I cheated though - I was bored and just googled that book and picked the closest one to the Fisher tower that Wendy said - looks a nice area. I also don't yet know how to shrink pics to post them on here So I will give it to Wendy if that's ok with everyone. x

Total classic.

I'd never noticed before how high his pants are and how bulky. There's a harness on under there.

I was just guessing too, based on Cate's stories of desert climbing in 2008.

But here we are, something else that Kieran will probably know straight away ...

Really!!?? I wouldn't have guessed Verm was hanging directly from one of the rings, but thought he was actually was sculling a Coopers in thongs soloing a grade 31...

Oh, tra la la. It's pretty obviously a fake, but I'd never bothered looking at it properly to figure out how they did it. Really only seen it the once in the Nati pub.
