I HATE those tracks… especially covered in snow… when you don’t know they are there… after imbibing with your friends.

Running on a day like today is no problem- just drink a lot before, during , and after. Not much different than running in the winter overdressed.

A fascinating tag. I have no idea where these are. The clue is a clue, I realize, but if it’s anywhere near where I think it is, I do not know that part of town well at all, let alone where the trolleys went.

I think I’m going to need another clue. I went out looking for this yesterday, and have a general idea of where it has to be, but I couldn’t get the view to quite match up.

Maybe I wasn’t being clear. It appears this is a toughie. Could we have another clue, please?

Ditto. No time after work today, though. Wish I could take a mulligan (or something similar) to get to this tag.

@bb, exactly what I was thinking. I rode out there and managed to get all the buildings lined up just right on top of a hill in Hays (did you know there’s some kind of prison up there?) But I couldn’t get the other buildings right. I must have misidentified the buildings — aren’t they, left to right, the Mellon Bank building, the UPMC tower, and there to the far right, the Cathedral of Learning?
Good work, George.

The giveaway for me was the wart of an apartment building visible over the roofline of the house to the left…that’s the one on Forward/Commercial, up the hill from the Irish Center.

I’m glad someone figured this out. I too was scouting out hillsides and views from somewhere in the Hays-Homestead area. Could someone please explain the clue?

BTW, that’s what I call a successful tag. It may have been harder than some would like, but lots of folks out looking around and exploring new parts of Pittsburgh is what it’s all about.

“columbia” came to mind as soon as i read the clue, though there appear to be a few streets with that name in the general area. and, as @reddan said, the apt building solidified it for me

Sorry, I’ve been a bit distracted…
Once I chose the spot I moved around taking many pictures to get the buildings just right there. Another clue was the tower in Edgewood Town Center with it’s (cellular?) antennae on the top, just left of center.
It fascinates me that Frick Park presents a dense wall of ‘sylvania and just a glimpse of downtown and oakland’s presence.
Hope you enjoyed the climb ;) it’s quite a nice bit of suburbia up there

it places the tag on the correct side of the building; it does this whenever its told. it places the tag on the correct side of the building or else it gets bruced again.

Absolute best rendering of fear ever in a movie was that scene in the dark w/Jodie Foster.
You are right, I got the one side you didn’t photo. On the other hand, the next tag will continue the theme you started with this one, in tribute. Friendsies?

Made a stinker
Right here in Pittsburgh
So be a thinker
And find this tag
It’s not too far
But just remember
Don’t drive a car

Wow, too hard, really? We all thought this would be picked up quickly. This site is on a very well-traveled trail, but not on Google earth, so ride, don’t mouse.
