Thank you Tonyo -- it was very strange. The slab had been dry most of the day and then, in the late afternoon, water just starting running down it all of a sudden. Snow melt, perhaps?

Thanks for your comments, Bijan! Yes, he does look a bit like a spider... sometimes he seems like he has 8 legs too. :)

And frictin climbing also . California granite the land of both. Some of the funnest friction and scariest friction routes I have done there. Can't help but love it and keep seeking them out. That is one good picture. Keep them coming
