A big, beautiful Wyoming day, and I was blessed with being able to climb with the amazing Christian Baird from Adventure Sports in Spearfish SD.That man inspires such confidence and boldness in me...and has a wonderful sense of humor to get you through the hard spots. We successfully climbed the previously unclimbed off-width crack that is 2 right of Durrance ( 1 right of Persistance ). It is a marvelous exercise in off-width and really is well protected. We rated it 5.10a and named it "Chip Salaun Memorial" in memory of a bold Wyoming and Colorado climber who Climbed the Wide with Pride. He vanished on a solo trip in the New Zealand Alps. His Spirit still inspires us.
