Goblin up the Grand Traverse

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Goblin up the Grand Traverse

Greengoblin following the 150' second pitch of the Grand Traverse (III 5.11+, 500'). E_hyde at the pitch 1 belay enjoying the seasonal shower. Probably the longest route in the midwest, it offers tremendous exposure and interesting climbing. Definetly doesn't feel like you're in Arkansas. photo: briarpatch

Greengoblin onsighting Elijah's Fire (5.10). This route takes great gear and has a few thought provoking moves. It's not over untill you clip the anchors. photo: briarpatch

Painted Warrior

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Painted Warrior

Sending "Painted Warrior" (5.12a). The way the color of the rock and the light play together make this a very special spot. A gentle breeze lofting the sent of pine. Not to mention that the two routes on this wall are just plain AMAZING. Tall and sustained. photo: E_hyde

Who Needs Friends? sans bolts

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Who Needs Friends? sans bolts

Onsighting "Who Needs Friends?" (5.12a) on trad gear. The route was bolted in '93 and has been led on gear a couple of times since (not sure about onsight though). All cams placed on lead and quite close to the bolts as it turns out. I didn't get any gear in near the last bolt though. Only a 15' runout. To KC, H, and Herm: Thanks for the support. Photo E_Hyde.

Putting a TR on Wildcat

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Putting a TR on Wildcat

Wildcat as seen from the base February 04. You may be able to see how beat out the climb was, it must see a lot of weekend traffic (close to Chicago). Luckily we were there mid-week. photo by E_Hyde.

Ice bouldering the start of Tonti

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Ice bouldering the start of Tonti

Getting warmed up at the base of Tonti, February 04. This narrow canyon can get an erie feeling about it. Maybe it has something to do with the area's history. Great mid-west ice. photo by E_Hyde.
