Watch first ascent of Gambler’s Fallacy 5.13b on Long’s Peak

The nine-pitch route took over 50 days to piece together

After four summers and more than 50 days of effort, Chris Weidner and Bruce Miller established the nine-pitch Gambler’s Fallacy 5.13b, a new route on North America’s highest elevation big wall. Long’s Peak Indigenous name is Neniisotoyou’u.

The new route mostly follows an old aid climb called Enos Mills Wall and finishes near the apex of the Diamond with two pitches of 5.13a and 5.12d on new terrain. On the same day as Weidner’s send, Phil Gruber and Josh Wharton completed a new 5.13- linkup that they named Beethoven’s Honeymoon 5.13-, nine pitches, that begins on the ultra-classic Eroica and finishes on Honeymoon is Over.
