Laine,

we're going to the fortress tomorrow provided the weather's pleasant. We usually arrive at 9:30. Hope to see you there, at long last. :)

PS Noticed on your mountainproject page we share a lot of 4 star interests. Also noticed some Ben T guy gave psych tree only two stars but said it was at least as good as the Line, lol! "No acct for tastes."

Ok I'll bring QLs. I was also thinking of replacing the tat on Two lips with QLs and some chain. Thanks for the beta, Dan.

It looks like the Sun Wall area is the group's first interest. After that...?

I look forward to meeting you, it's about time! :)

PS, I'll post up if plans change, but I think it's pretty solid.
Woo hoo!!

Wow, get a hit of Wed's high!!

There was a spice container. Big topic over berm fires on the Pioneer trail in the early 90s. We all scattered. But for Bronco, solo oddities on the 88 neath trowel of winter waxed horrible. He started out as a good man. A nice man. His withdraw to personify solace went south as his compass spun between mother and ski hooker. He climbed to fight the contradiction. But, as it is, he became all he hated. . . . a he-mother ski hooker bolt drilling F'kd up Lama pumping rasta. Good on ya Mate wherever yar.

Good times with Mark, Spark, n Bill. Bill sent sun wall mid and we watched Mark walk SW left. Met some Renoites at the parking area. They climbed at deadwood last weekend, and hit the books today. Met some other folks at the end of the day who spent the day stomping around the sand looking for the fortress. Walter White was even there. Place is getting busy.

I wonder why that is? I'd keep spraying how good it is and before you know it the whole world will know.

The more the merrier. Personally I think the popularity of Woodfords is outmatched by level of effort needed to approach and climb many of the routes. I doubt it will ever suffer overcrowding like the Leap.

Laine, I said I'd pm you. Which I did when I got home. Hope you got it...

Interesting.

Alpine mountaineering weather still looking unfavorable for t-shirts...

Went up to whites several years ago with only my camera in hand as well. Some of the most beautiful rock I have seen up there!'!!! Pounded a 2008 quarter at the base of a crack that I want to get on before I keel over

Thanks for bringing the mug Dan. Found it no problem.

Footloose, never got your PM. I sent you one as well. Maybe try again?

Approach to whites was a little difficult but I went the "scenic route"
The other area I'm definitely in. Access is a lot easier from the west. Looks like an easy drop in from the top if needed. Checked it out several years ago.

Chim,
Don't recall those rags but I do recall trying to pilf a stash of old Cal & Hammer topo's.
Cool action in the canyon over the last several years, great work.
