Re: sick pic

Probably from the angle of the picture... probably in grade 4 condition, though it can be 4+ :) Thx

Re: Tuff Stuff...

I tend to always have a pack on... can't get into the fast & light mentality yet :) Thanks Deb (and I somehow missed those comments until now)

That rates high on one of the funnest climbs I have done

That was winter 2005 we did it under a full moon with no one around the whole time we were hiking in , climbing and hiking out was a very still night and a beautiful full moon whie climbing. We will be in Ouray Vail and Cody Wyoming this winter if you are out this way get a hold of me. Will show you some fun ice routes . In the mean time enjoy the granite world of California. While you are there get a chance and climb on Daff Dome in Toulme there are two very excellent routes there West Crack and a 5.9 right next to it.

Re: That rates high on one of the funnest climbs I have done

Thanks for the offer! I haven't been do Cody yet so might consider a trip there. I have been enjoying the granite a lot though, you can be sure :) I've done the routes on Daff Dome and love Tuolumne!! I'll have to drop you a note if I come in your neck of the woods.
