The Cleanest Line: Texas Tower Soul Crush

My old friend Jonathan Thesenga writes a “scream-of-consciousness” account of our ascent of Texas Tower in Southeast Utah. Good pics, too. I wish I had audio of me rubbing my feet and whining on that ledge after digging through the “snow mushroom”!

    Wow, EPIC! As if climbing the 5.11+ OW isn’t bad enough, the descent had to smack you guys around. Kudos for pulling off that adventure.

      Our own summit mushroom. “Climbing” would not be the first word I’d go to for how we got up that OW! 5.10 C1 means “any way I can” and it still kicked my ass! The few folks out there who have freed that thing deserve RESPECT!
