Would anyone like to hear a little obscure history of some relatively small but interesting rock climbs in Yosemite, from the golden era circa 1967?

As long as you're willing to type stories about obscure climbs from the 60's, I'm willing to read about them.

I'll second that motion!
Years ago, I got my hands on a little pamphlet called something to the effect of, "How to become a master climber in seven easy steps" from a semi-strange (aren't we all) kid named mike, coming through Yosemite from Washington, I believe, who had just had some falling out with his parents based on religion or something. I guess he got the book from you. I really enjoyed it, as it seemed like it was a bunch of little meditations to keep in mind. One that sticks with me to this day was, " A master climber is always aware of the consequences of his actions. Even on the approach, he will never kick rocks down the hill on his partner...", etc
Anything you take the time to type, I'll take the time to read.

I'm waiting with bated breath (whatever that is). I think we all enjoy good history reads - no matter how obscure.

No trolls though!

I'm sure your posts will be bumped.

So Pat, were you the kind of teenager who asked for a kiss and then waited for the answer?

Just asking.

Still waiting. What about that higgy stardust for starters?

Pat, please do with an emphasis on the interesting people as part of the piece (the climbs are likely still there).
