I'm FAMOUS!

Woo hoo!



Why is Tom playing with himself though? Man, if I would have known that was going on behind me, I would have been scared.

Re: I'm FAMOUS!

dang, you look like a real mountain climber. This pic should be on the cover of Rock and Ice magazine (or at least "Better Housekeeping" )

Nice pic Dennis, your pics will be a welcome addition.

What am I supposed to do with this agian?

No really that is a look of extreme determination and concentration, not confusion. ;-)

What is that white stuff?

Snow? Chalk? The Rock itself? Interesting looking...

Re: What is that white stuff?

I dunno what that was. Either lichen or water stains or something. To be honest I didn't really notice it until this picture. Definitely not chalk or snow though.

I thought it was chalk, and you guys were practicing some sickfest alpine dyno bouldering up there.

Re: Looks like good rock???!!!

Looks are deceiving. A few of those big blocks tilted and moved when you grabbed them. I tried to place one nut and when I yanked on it to test it, the rock on the right side of it moved out of the way. I ended up putting one directional/anchor in for Tom and climbed the 15 feet or so up and slung the horn on the summit instead of wasting time trying to find a placement.



Of course I completely missed the nice 3rd class option to the summit around the corner. :- )

This photo keeps getting stuck between Gilbert and the bear. I'll give it a vote. Thanks, Dennis!

Dandy summit pitch

I hope to see it in person in 2012 when I reacquaint myself with the Mac Kenzie Pass area lobe of the occidental (Spring) Cascades. Jefferson has lots of qualities and good fishing in many lakes at its base. Great picture.
