Yes, tomorrow, Feb 17th at 10:00am Utah time is Super Cluesday, which means the final clue will be given right here for a chance to win a Mountain Hardwear tent of your choice! I will away in Ouray, Colorado, but hopefully things will go well. If not, be patient.

The idea is simple – after reading the final clue (and the four leading up to it), send in your answer as a “comment” on the final clue’s posting. Details on how to make a comment are here, and as savy Chuting Spree’rs know, it will speed up your posting time if you are preapproved, which can be done by making a comment on any previous straightchuter.com posting (including this one). “Dude, count me in.” is fine and the preapproval aspect comes from the spamming software, not me. You will not be sent any junk email.
The final answer (the location within twenty meters) is what really matters, but for clarity and fairness, the winning format is:
Continent – (your answer)
Zone/Region – (your answer)
Mountain Range – (your answer)
Specific Peak – (your answer)
Specific Location – (your answer)
If you know the answers to the first four clues, it helps to pretype them for speedy delivery.
You can enter as many times as your fingers can type, but it is the first person with the correct format and answer who wins.
For reference, the final clue is more of a skiing story-problem, which could include all sorts of skiing related travel (skiing, skinning, booting, etc.). You might think about where and how you would travel from this peak. The answers to all the clues can be found on the internet and are real places. Example.
