Jon on the Chumstick Snag (left)
"When you swing your leg over the top, it's like riding a dinosaur," said the old-time climber about the Chumstick Snag. "Of course, pay homage to the shrine at the bottom if you get off that sandstone monster alive."
We never did see a shrine, but riding the top of that fin is the closest I ever have been to bronco busting, stegosaurus-style.
