On Aug 2nd, Crosby Johnston and I climbed the North Face of Mt. Temple aka 'the Eiger of the Rockies'. There is no doubt that the Greenwood/Locke is a "must do" route as stated in the Selected Alpine Climbs and I was psyched to do it with a long time climbing partner.
Crosby is usually a coastal rate, often found grunting up Squamish test pieces or swimming with the seals while he tries to kite board. I rarely find myself tying in with him but when I do, I know an adventure will ensue. Crosby is currently lurking in the rockies 'training' for the ACMG alpine exam, which usually entails slogging up 'the classics' all while practising the dark arts. I convinced him (easily enough) that training should also include the 'true' rockies classics.
