Man oh Man. Back in my day we would have been happy with any ONE of those towers...you guys bagged a whole haul sack full! And you went for some obscure. I especially appreciate the beautiful mix of climbing and nature shots...I'm still breathless. Kor's gotta see this. Has Kor seen this?

He hasn't seen it, but he knows about it now.
He wants info on any moderate routes with easy approaches at Xmas Tree.

yeah, he seamed like a very cool guy from the stuff I've seen here on ST. Hope his close friends/relatives are dealing with his passing ok.

What a great thread! I'd forgotten about this.

RIP Joe. Gone far too soon.

Just curious, on Tiki which way did you go on the last pitch? Seems like there's a few options...

And, I'm glad I didn't get suckered into linking those two pitches on Mud Wrestling...I had one #3 left on my rack anyway...would have put me in chocker hold for sure!

Great pics and TR!

Can't wait to get back there!


Correction:

My condolences to Joe's family and friends....never met him but I would have liked to...rest in peace.
