Hard!!

Even on TR, this route kicked my butt. Right where you're at Kris....just before the funky mantle.

Thanks, Dude..

For me the crux is getting to the jug I have in my hands there...which is why I cut my feet loose in a gesture of pure joy!

Re: Damn hard!

Hey Michelle... Whats up. It was nice running into you and Neil at the Alabama Hills there a few weeks ago..

Yeah, gettin' the Smiladon ticked took a few efforts... worth it though.

Re: Damn hard!

It was nice finally meeting you as well. Since then I've been getting back out on the rock a lot...but from the looks of Smiladon, it will take much more than that to get up that route. Nice climbing!

Nice to see

someone else on SP who is old enough to have worn the lycra. Everytime I show my (much younger) wife sport climbing pics of me from the 80's, she laughs her head off. I even have a few pics of me wearing pink lycra, but don't tell anyone...

Great photo by the way - as are all yours; thanks for sharing.

Re: Nice to see

I still climb in tights. I like the feel, just mostly black and gray now so as not to get anyone worked up..

Your photo collection there is awesome...
