I'll be in the Bay Area for a wedding and thought I might sneak over to the Valley.

From my armchair in Spain, I would guess there might be a bit of wetness on the route at that time.

I think that by May the climb will be dry. Sentinel isn't that high and should have melted off. Check your frequent flyer mikes and come on over!

You should check with le_bruce; he does it at least every couple of years, and you can swap stories of traveling in South America.

I would say yes but many find it awkward to cuddle all night on a first date. You might be an exception though...

it is well known that Donini doesn't do unplanned bivi's anymore... so you'd be shivering by yourself in the brush... he knows his way down in the dark.

As I recall, last time Jim did SS a coupl years ago, he was back in camp in time for a cold one before dinner. Impressive to say the least!

Do I see tentative nibbles from Moose and Justin? I'll lead the baggie stuff. Studly, come down and get out of the rain.

Hell yeah I'd climb it with you Donini. I try to do the route once a year, it's just that good. It gets better with each go. Shoot me a pm if you'd like to try to line it up?

Though you and I have never met, my aunt + uncle met you once down on General Carrera.

Only potential conditions glitch could be snow in the long, loose gulley part of the descent, which lurks in shadow there most of the day. Navigated that snow once and it wasn't so bad. The route itself ought to be in great conditions.

Le Bruce....I don't have your e-mail and I am told e-mailing on ST doesn't work.

Jim, Bryce [LeBruce] bit me up by few minutes.
If he bail please consider me as his substitute. It would be proud to climb with you for me and I am definitely up to it. try to do this root every year. May 10 can be a lot of snow in the gully and decent can be epic. but WTF?

If you guys have a cell phone to coordinate it, consider walking out to the Glacier Point road. Not sure if you get cell service from up there but a short hike will confirm it. Not sure if Jim hates cell phones as much as radios...
