Unfinished Business

Steve Bechtel, writing about a first ascent that was done in Wyoming recently:

When Micah first walked up to the climb last year, the face had already been bolted. There were anchors on top. It was a ready-to-climb classic.  Like many of the other hard and great yet-to-be-climbed projects, someone had tried it before. That someone was Todd Skinner.

…snip…

Below is a list of a few of the most significant Skinner projects still awaiting first ascents. This is by no means exhaustive.

Any takers?

    Not to be Debbie downer, but did they ever find Steve b’s wife? One of my first climbing mags had an article about her and I’m pretty sure there was a dateline murder mystery about her.

    Other than that. Amazing piece.

    Never found, but there is a potentially a lead in that a known murdered or young women on death row in Wyo was probably in lander at the time of the disappearance.
