“1000’ Pile Of Mud”


A new route on the Titan is described here. I like this quote:

“Gagner and Aslaksen finally completed the eight-pitch route at 2 p.m. on August 29 after a four-day effort on the 1,000' pile of mud….

… what attracts climbers to The Titan is ‘the sheer awfulness of the climbing: the experience is so far beyond normal expectations, it comes out the other side as a wild adventure’."

sheer awe fullness or awfulness, makes a difference, the later sounds so appealing!
