No I don't think that's their "summit" in putting because they put the Sole out after the Summit. But hey who knows! Interesting you use your Obex as your putter. I really like my Soles for their glide. Obex is a sick mid-range disc though. I have been using it almost more than my Ibex. It is kind of like a Wasp if you have thrown any of Discraft before.

The idea was supposed to be like like a progression of a hike up a mountain, was it not? You throw the Ascent off the tee, maybe you encounter a wild Ibex on your way up, as you near the Ridge you can't help but feel excited, and boom you've reached the Summit of this gnarly par 5 and you've just sunk a birdie.

Going along with this, couldn't there be a disc called the Trailhead, or the Vista...?

^^^Hmmm....that's a really good way to look at it! I still think names like Rapid or Crest or things that have to do with the mountain/outdoors/hiking would still work. I'm not Vibram though haha. I do like "Vista" though.

Well knowing Vibram they probably will chose something completely different than all these we have come up with! What do people want the Vibram DD to be like? What disc or speed?

I personally want it to be either a speed 9 disc like an Innova Firebird or a speed 12ish disc like an Innova Destroyer.

What about:

Avalanche
Whipper (a fall when you were far above your last anchor)
Crux (The most difficult portion of a climb)
Adze (a climbing tool)
Dynamic
Serac (an ice tower)
Edge
Screamer (a long fall)
Aspect
Route
Sherpa (Shows you the way to the basket)
Talus
Descender

I particularly like Vibram Aspect and Edge.

^ a sherpa would throw the disc for you and carry your bag and make you dinner and tuck you in at night. I don't think that is a good name for a disc!!! it will promote lazy disc golfers!!!

@jtreadwell,

Those are some solid names! Aspect, Edge, and Route are my favorite as well. What about the name Tread?
