Kenny, yea you can place thin pro between bolts. There is one more bolt higher up (3 total). Clip it and make a friction move to the prominent jug that sticks out in the skyline of your last pic. Yard the jug, wipe your brow, and climb to the anchors.

Laine, would you be willing to add some information for the guide that I'm finishing up? It's still in a really "fluid" state so additions or five would be kinda nice and easy to place. My graphic designer and I haven't worked on the photo topos so a standard hasn't been set. All the drawn topos are done and I plan on spending a day or two working on the photos to finish this thing up. So if your interested let me know how to get your contributions so people can take advantage of the hard work that you have been doing.
Also Ron since you have a font of historical information I was wondering if you would consider adding some narratives to "flesh" out the guide. Much Appresh!
And Burn... if it looks good let's go out there tomorrow. D.K. Aka Milt

Thanks, Ron I have two spots in mind right now more when I see how the book pages out. Storm Trooper Wall is the first with some stuff about Dano and P.C., the second place is Woodcutter's Wall some info about the missing flake climb would be kinda cool. D.K.

Dan - sure I'd be happy to provide the info in whatever format you want, I just need to know how you'd like it presented. I've not done hand drawn stuff, but I understand from a printing cost perspective if you'd prefer black and white over color. Conversely, if you want photo topos, I can provide raw files so you and your designer can decide how best to display them. We should chat about it in person sometime soon. Maybe I can take a day off before this weather moves in and meet you guys up at the fords.

Chim-Chim, what would really be cool if you could incorporate first-hand stories from the early explorers of the region. I mean, not only the history of first ascends, but also some "just stories" that would make make the reader emotionally engaged. Add some color to it. All the guides I read are pretty dry. There is some background history included, for sure, but they often lack the fire. But maybe I am a sucker for a good story ;)

Gents that would be awesome. I'm meeting up will the graphic desighner and I'll ask himm what he thinks. I'll get the details. Laine your photo topos look great and it may give him some ideas about how to proceed with my photos. I may have the both of you have you email directly to Mike K. he's great... doesn't climb but he gets it. Also some nice action photos past and present would be nice to tie every thing together. Dan

Nice looking routes. Glad someone put those up. Eyed those back in 07-08 but didn't make it happen.
Chim
Do you want to hit those and do a hand drawing tomorrow?
