Summary

Shirley & I climbed this car to car in July of 2005 as a "plan B" option...we were aiming for Backbone but I was not feeling all that strong. On the other hand, Shirley was feeling extra good hyped up on some speed-like medication she was prescribed for her poison oak allergic reaction...that and a Redbull or two at the car.
