I think the bail rig is from an Ammon, Bmoc, Trundles one day attempt of MC, circa '05, that went off route and never went.

Does Spencer climb anymore? Amazing how quick history becomes history.

Nice report Mike, I too liked the close ups of the Tomahawks in action. I look forward to trying them out for myself. Your pictures and report lit a fire of desire for me.

I owe you a call brother about Mt. biking, you will hear from me today.

Put me in line for the hammer after Jaybro for @ April- May I have a new route in mind once the snow goes. It would be wayyyy special to use the hammer for it.

Stealing from my friend yet to meet (maybe met BITD?) ekat; Holy Schnizzle! Wonderfull TR and well worthy.

The TACO owns the hammer. As goes the taco, so goes the hammer. Take one down, pass it around, Jim's hammer's on a wall.

Just make sure it gets to Nature for his solo.

Mike, I may have your address around here somewhere, but refresh my memory.

I'll need it delivered (unless I can pick it up in the Valley) the week of May 24th. I bail out of Tucson on the 28th of May.

Sadly I'll use the Birdwhammer to smash beer cans and tin cans. I'm hoping to do the route clean.

Nice TR, Mike.

Mike. - Great TR, bra!!!

That bottomly (wet) section looks pretty heroic...

sorry, this time no assistance with getting your gear back on terra-ferma!!

Got no back-bone left...

Cheers on that TR

Nice words, you guys.

nature, whatever you and jtp want to do is good with me. Say when and I'll ship. Right now the hammer is sitting in my dark home office while I work elsewhere. It's probably wishing to beat on some more iron.

Jingy, you will always be the man who would not relent. And I thank you for that! I'm sure to you I will always be the guy who doesn't know a 90-pond pack when he sees one. Or maybe a hustler.

Yea, burt, I've gotten grief for that before. It's cool, hehe. I refuse to be the next Matt Baxter (RIP), if avoiding it is as easy as lockers on certain lead pieces. And it is that easy. You will no doubt be amused that the winger I took was on Dyneema and Neutrinos...cheers, man.
