Quick Q and A with Jonathan Schaffer on the Black Canyon
Favorite thing about the Black:
The remoteness, it’s an area that you can climb at without a lot of people around.
Least favorite thing about the Black:
The drive, I wish it was closer. I’ve almost hit deer, elk and even a mountain lion while driving home exhausted.
The Tuffnell-McGee on the Great White Wall. Established by the late Cameron Tegue, this climb encapsulates the entire Black Canyon experience.
Personal Black Canyon hero:
Mike Pennings of Ridgway, Colo. He’s done more routes than anyone down there, and is still getting after it climbing harder routes in faster times.
Other favorite local climbing areas:
Taylor Canyon, Spring Creek Canyon and Lost Canyon.
