Eric Zschiesche climbing "The Greatest Show On Earth"
Huh. So no one actually knows what the true "Greatest Show" is. This should only fan the flames of utter confusion I suppose.
After a bit of prodding Eric Zschiesche sent me the above picture with some of his thoughts:
"Steve, good to hear the stones at the Lake are getting some human touch. Jeez,... it's been ten years or more, since I played on the Greatest Show boulder,...so it is slightly fuzzy. Cool chunk of sandstone, attached a photo of the boulder ( the photo lab botched the image configuration / so it is a mirrored remembrance. ), enjoy the DLSP spring."
First off, do you see how CLEAN that boulder is???!!! Holy hell! I need to get back out there with some more brushes and do that thing some justice! It's immaculate!!
Secondly, and remember it's a mirrored pic, Eric is topping out on the right side of the overhang. Far different than where Nic and I feel the direct would go, and even more different than Nic's left exit. On top of that, there is some pretty major chalk on the arete.
I guess it's time to go scrub! Seems like there might be three different Greatest Shows!!! HAH!
