Captain Craig pulls off some 5.10d shiny slab moves near the base of Mescalito. Chapeau! (4-18-06)

Re: I think

Thanks Radek! Now when are you and Shirley coming down this way so we get to meet you guys? Was chatting with Misha this weekend and he mentioned you guys might come down and climb something...

Re: Almost looks

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?

Re: sort of funny..

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

Gives you a good perspective of what glacier polish is all about

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

Thank you Jerry! It's true -- "the best of times and the worst of times." :) We keep torturing ourselves as well, ha!
