Hey Ron, my two year old doodle has an auto-immune condition where his body is attacking his red blood cells and had become so anemic as to require blood transfusions. My friend Adam was kind enough to allow his dogs to donate some blood last Tuesday. On friday he received concentrated blood cells that I ordered. Since blood cells only live 90 days and some of the blood he received contains cells that are more than a few days old this blood won't last long unless his body starts to produce its' own. His immune system has also began to attact the precusor cells in his bone marrow. So basically his body is like a battery that can't hold a charge, so the prognosis doesn't look good. We're giving him prednizone an immune system dampener and now to be a bit more aggresive cyclosporin a drug used in transplant cases to keep an organ recipient from rejecting the body part being replaced. If his body doesn't respond to the drugs he will eventually succumb to his illness. Sasha and I are hopeful. :) Thanks for the concern. On a happier note I just spent the morning at Sports Ltd breaking out all the new ropes for the season, we're a complete climbing shop again after being depleted all winter. Dan

He didn't seem like some madbolter and was planning on using a hand drill on a crack system or two that "peter" out after some good crack climbing... he seems legit.

does the perfect lie back area face south? any east? Do the climbs dry out quickly after light rain?

Perfect LieBack faces south east. There's not alot of real estate above Perfect Lieback to drain onto it so even after a moderate rain fall it should be good to go.
