Hero shot taken near summit of Black Velvet Peak at 6pm following our climb of Epinephrine. 12 hours and change, 14 pitches, 2000 feet of climbing in fairly new rock shoes - tired (but happy) Shirley's showing off the result (May 29, 2005).

Re: pirceless !

Thanks :)

Not sure if that ever goes away....I had some nasty lookin' blue dye on my feet from my well-aged rock shoes. Decided against enclosing that photo in fear that it might take away from people's ability to eat afterwards...

If at first you don't succeed,

fly back the next weekend! Nice job on your climb. Looks like a great and challenging line. So when do we get to see the Sour Mash and Dream of Wild Turkeys photos? How about Resolution Arete and Levitation 29? Doing those next weekend? :-)

Re: If at first you don't succeed,


heh, heh...Thanks Martin.

This was supposed to be a climbing trip to the High Sierras but the snow conditions made us replan. At least got this monkey off our backs...

No no more trips for a while. Time to enjoy the local weather :(

Turkeys and Sour Mash look pretty awsome; as does Res. Arete - but I think I need to get a lot stronger esp. for RA (~20 pitches with much .10 terrain!)

Forget Levitation...don't think I'll be able to lead that in this lifetime.

Thanks for stopping by Martin.
