My wife, Heather, and i are looking for a partner to help us send Allied Forces, an obscure route on the west face that has probably never seen a second ascent. we had a third person, but he had to drop out do to an injury. I hope to fix on weekends and wednesdays until the week of oct 23-27 when we hope to send, weather considering. heather can only help on weekends, and i am tired of going up there solo. currently i am fixed a pitch and a half. here are some traits and experience we are looking for

1) some big wall experience...not teaching anybody to jug right?
2) willing to always help out and never complain(although observations are allowed)
3) sense of humour and ability to laugh in the face of adversity
4) from the bay area and can pick me up and drive for fixing
5) last name mcclean

any takers? Steve Schneider

Careful! He spoons on the ledge is what I heard!

:P


Other than that, a good opportunity to Big Wall with a Legend.

Does McClean get to do some leading as long as they know who you are ?

the mcclean reference is an invite to the McClean brothers. cory, my second recruit from supertopo was one of my partners on lost world. then his brother, george, was my gym partner for awhile. then they both got pregant and i never heard from them again. but they would be most welcome to climb with me anytime. ss

al dude, and when was the last time you did a wall in a push...like, if ever. and what's up with not disclosing the rack and just saying take everything. and what's up with the sandbagging...first pitch is at least A3+, with the ground a serious issue fro 30' to 60' on the first pitch. and how come there isn't a real first pitch off the gound on either mirage or allied forces? ss

Calm down brother....it's going to be glorious.I've done 3 ElCap routes in a push (under 24 hours)...all speed records at that time. Dark Star in particular was notable in that it was the first time an ElCap route rated A5 had its second ascent done in less than a day. Any way have fun on the "Al 5" pitch! The White Slave pitch is a standout also... 5.7 R***
