More 5.14s In Idaho From Jonathan Siegrist

Jonathan Siegriest has wrapped up a successful trip to the Fins in southeast Idaho, adding a few new 5.14s to what is becoming a pretty fully developed wall for hard face climbing:

It’s not the biggest, or most extensive crag in the country but if face climbing is your stoke then honestly this area can not be missed. The discovery wall alone hosts nearly a dozen 5.13s and 5 5.14s, with a slew of 12’s to fill in the gaps. I doubt that it will ever develop into a uber popular crag – it’s in the middle of nowhere, it’s generally hard, the road to the camping is super burly and the hard routes are quite sporting. But for those of us that love this place – here’s to another rad season and hopefully I’ll see you out there again!

The Almighty

Jonathan Siegrist writes about his experience repeating a mixed route called The Almight(5.14a) in Teton Canyon, WY that was first done by local Ty Mack in 2011:

This is one of my favorite ascents to date – I feel that it is my hardest trad lead and it was a really cool process to get there. Ty suggested .14a for The Almighty and I think personally I would suggest .14b for the short person method through the lower and upper cruxes. Because of size we really did climb the route entirely different. Ty’s effort here isreally sick, and I want to make a point to congratulate him again for his efforts opening The Almighty — there really is nothing else like it!

It’s always cool to read these stories of off the radar routes established by off the radar bone crushers.

Jonathan Siegrist Repeats Moonshine (5.14d)

Jonathan Siegrist, writing on his blog about his 4th ascent of BJ Tilden’s finger tendon nightmare Moonshine (5.14d) at the Wild Iris:

In the end it was this rad community that got me through it. My homie Colby came through with the necessary moonshine, replenishing the resident jar that lives beneath the route, BJ was there to bless me with his belay, and a crowd of good friends – old and new – were at the crag to cheer me on. I’m glad that this tiny little sport route toyed with my emotions a little – I got a condensed version of what BJ experienced over the years – and it made topping out the Erratic that much sweeter.
