About Superpin:

The awesome skinny spire next to Tent Peg. One of the classic death routes of the hills is on this. Devoid of any cracks, etc.. really shows the ethics of the area of climbing the rocks terms, not your own. First asent by Pete Cleveland (of D. Lake, WI fame.. heck, the guy still climbs .12 in his 60s) in 1968. To show the seriousness of this route, this was taken from the "touch the sky" guide, and is a letter from Mr. Cleveland: 'Ron Cox (belayer) was too nervous to belay after I had gone beyond both the point of no return and my protection against falling to the ground. We certainly felt it would be better for him to be in the best position should I succeed rather than in the best posioin to witness my failure.. Ron was observing from the saftey of the highway.. I put all thoughts aside and climbed with full commitment and intensity over the new difficulties to the top." Craziness.
