Climbing all 50 classics would take a skill set that few climbers these days posses. So many folks specialize in one aspect of climbing and do not have the rounded skill set to be solid at Aid, Alpine and free climbing. additionaly you have to be stealth to snag Shiprock....

It would be an impressive accomplishment INMOP

Few?????? You gotta get out and meet climbers more often. I know a lot that after doing a 5.13 finger crack, can crank out off widths and then do pretty hard ice climbs and can slog mountains with the best of them. Their out their,.... except you don't see them in the rags much, and you definately don't hear about them.....

I think you underestimate or are unfamiliar with how hard climbs like the Hummingbird Ridge are. I've climbed some wimpy Alaskan routes, and it's an entirely different world up there.
