The Rectory
Shirley in the Rectory-Castleton saddle during our approach hike to The Priest (barely visible as a separate tower at the far left side of The Rectory). The southern prow of The Rectory (with Fine Jade, III 5.11-) is in the foreground. What a spectacular setting the saddle is (Feb. 5, 2005)!!

Radek, this is a great shot. The color, composition, and subject are wonderful. I like the fact that Shirley is in the picture too.

Great shot, stunning country. Of course, it always helps out your pic when you have Shirley in it. : )

Kane,

thank you very much for your super-kind remarks!



The Rectory thing will have to wait for us - we'd like to do it via the classic "Fine Jade" line but right now that's way beyond what we're capable of free climbing unfortunately (it's rated .11-)......though there is an easier route to the top (called Empirical Route 5.9 R). Do you have any plans for that tower - I'd love to see more of those things submitted to SP?

Take care and good climbing to you!

Regards,

Radek

..the zebra-stripped rock is nicely captured. I also noticed you guys bivied up on the solar slab terrace. that must have been pretty cool (esp. sunset/sunrise views).

Thanks. Yes, the bivy on Solar Slab was a good idea. Great way to beat the crowds and you're right... an amazing sunrise!
