That's what I was thinking of the canyon, would have to head as far south as Lone Pine to avoid the nuking, eh?

These are all from 2/25. Of course, things have changed already since then but it should give ya an idea which lines are in as of two days ago.

Thanks Scott & Kristina,

Nice meeting you guys. 5hrs drive then broke trail half way up the road and then up the trail, climb ice until dark, Nicely's for dinner, then 5 hr drive home!!!! That is commitment! or you two should be committed! :P

Glad you made it back in one piece.

Just practicing for Peru, Wes! great meeting you guys as well! We'll be back w/e of the 12-14th; join!

anyway, it's really all SMG's fault; a few mild pitches on ice with Jed and i'm hooked. I can't decide whether to send him a set of screws as a thank-you or a bill for my gasoline :)

Thanks for slogging in and breaking trail guys :)

Headed in yesterday with Frank and had a great time climbing. Led my first WI3 in LVC since 2007. Highly recommend Frank as a climbing partner -- safe, smart, good company and eager to learn.

Good times seeing Jed again and also met Vic. We saw Chief's rig in the parking lot, but I hadn't brought any extra llama stickers :( Maybe next time ;) Great to see the east side crew represent 8)
