Route Climbed: Big-O/ Goodyear route Date Climbed: BC  Sucess!

Great summit where one can fit in NICELY. During the BC (before cellphone) era, the crux was in finding an avaliable pay phone.

Route Climbed: Fish Tacos in far eastern dihedral of diner Date Climbed: October 2002

Soloed this route twice in one week's time to get my technique down. Unfortunately I failed to summit both times due to major loss of molar 2 weeks prior. I think 2005 is my year to conquest and conquer the elusive clean plate summit.

Route Climbed: Baja Fish Taco With Mango Chutney (The Wino Variation) Date Climbed: July 2001  Sucess!

Made the "summit" via the Wino Variation (S5+) but got greedy trying to make a double summit attempt on 'The Hot Tuna/Ahi Platter' (S7). Summit attempt halted by A.G.P.S. (acute gut pain syndrome). Partnering up with Deb to make a reattempt in 2005......

Route Climbed: Post JMT Gorging Date Climbed: July 16th, 2004  Sucess!

After a successful completion of the JMT in 16 days, I met my parents in the Valley, and we headed over the pass to dine at the Whoa Nelli. Needless to say, stuffing a chicken ceasar wrap into my stomach after 16 days of starvation was tasty, but I paid for it later(I lost 10+lbs as evident in the pic).

* Translation: I'm a very happy dog when Dave brings me leftovers. I especially like the delicious bbq ribs with their own mouthwatering sauce, and the rack of lamb! I'm so glad my nutty owner named me after this place.

Route Climbed: All of em- Date Climbed: Gosh...  Sucess!

I summited this one at least 50 times, basically every time I pass by. Sometimes I do a quick one, other times I settle in for a more technical and committing "route".

My most memorable summit was last year when Etsuko and I walked in at 8am, several hours after Matthew and I day-hiked Whorl and ordered the following:

- Steak caesar salad (HUGE)

- Seared ahi tuna (GOOD SIZE)

- Fish tacos (BIG)

At first, guys behind the counter looked at us in disbelief (they were serving only breakfast at that time), but after a quick deliberation they agreed to cook everything we requested. Needless to say, I could barely get up after finishing the meal.
