Tom is back at it; nice photos and anticipation of the Donini/Lowe attempt on Nose-in-a-Day at ages 70/69.

This photo from the report is just beautiful. The composition with the three cracks and the climber...

Tom's photos look extra-good. Am I imagining things or is he rocking some new kit?

Ah yes, the voyeur is back at it.

If I were going up there I'd request that he never point his camera in my direction.

Just can't find privacy anywhere anymore!

Is this a trick question?

There never was any privacy on ElCap as hundreds of Tourons are viewing the great rock on a dialy basis during the climbing season and they don't respect one's privacy! All that is required is an email to me saying you don't wish to be reported on or photographed and it is done... simple as that. Some people opt out for no reporting but yes on the photos... have it your way! Thanks to all who support the report and big wall climbing here in Yosemite!!
Photo gear is the same as last year... 600mm Nikon f4 with a canon T3i attached by adapter.

Thanks Tom, these photos always make me want to go to Yosemite and climb El Capitan. The view from my work cubicle is not nearly as good.

What about the old-guy nose in a day team? What are they waiting for? There's no time left for procrastinating.

Holy Moly, is that some new camera equipment I smell?

Unreal stuff there.

Great to have you back, Tom.
I'll be sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for your reports!
I would donate this year, but I can't figure out how to get a six-pack in and envelope...

Yeehaw! Looking forward to the drama, the spray, the who's who, the who's not, the topouts, the fails and the bails! I know Lurking Fear is around the corner a bit...But hopefully we'll at least get mentioned when we go for our first ride up on the monster this summer!

See you there Tom,

Excellent pics as usual Tom.

Keep an eye out for my friend Leah, she'll be part of a team of three heading up the Nose shortly.
