in the late 70's Michael Hartrich climbed Thin Air from top to bottom completely on ice. I agree with Jon that we likely will never see that again.

Is there any ice on it now?

Ice has two purposes in life: climbing and watering down bad scotch!

always be gentle on existing routes!  that being said

echo is great to learn and mess around.  Short with lots of hard potential

thin air, big flush, funhouse are good on cathedral

screaming at frankie is great, likewise the mixed line at kinsman is great.  FYI, i pulled a pin 2 years ago, but it takes natural pro.  No more turf on top.  Much harder than the book makes it sound.

Trollville is fun.  Dreadlocks is a fun lead (bolted and natural pro)  TR of purple people eaters is...interesting.

The large cliff band above central on webster always yields some cool stuff.
