Ming the Merciless 8a+/8b on Garage Buttress at Stoney. Zippy's route right of Little Plum from 2007.

Not sure if this fits in exactly but it's about routes and I made it so I guess so?

Quite sure even the biggest climbing history buffs will learn something (how many people know about Orujo, suggested 9a+ and it's artificial holds?) bar maybe Remus (the site was a great reference btw, thanks!)

I'm reading Tides at the moment and found myself googling the Slovak Direct on Denali. It turned up Houseman's own video of his and Bullocks ascent. Fairly low production values so can't put it in Quality vids but definitely worth 20 mins for the POV of a fantastic looking route.

For context it's a two day technical approach from base camp on the other side of the mountain. You've then got 3000m of vertical with overhanging rock and ice finishing in an exhausting snow bash up the Cassin Ridge. They set off from base with 4 meals and 5 days worth of gels. Because of the size of the route you won't have enough gear for the belays if you were to try and retreat from about half way up. So you either do it or you... die, I guess? Rad.

Have you read Steve House’s book? A pivotal ascent in his career too.

I thought it was a great read.
