Definitely want to but time and money were a little short this year. Hope you guys have a great time over east and be careful. Is it dangerous politically speaking over there? Can't be much worse than the biker bar Jack and I stopped at in the 307(WYO) to get a burger I suppose.

There is a standing offer for you guys to come up here as well. Some guys have been putting up some 800ft routes in the Big Horns and I have my eyes on a cirque that looks to have 5-8 really nice routes that are 800-1000ft and only two hours from Spearfish.

It was great to get over to the tower today with temps on the south face probably in the 60's. Hard to believe there was 4 feet of snow just a couple of weeks ago. Also it was very cool to see the Big Horns off in the distance while driving over the Bearlodge Mountains on the way back to Spearfish.

Jaybro,

you have said,
I want to do an ascent signifigant to my own history... difficulty irrelevant, but not Durrance
.

"... significant to my own history...", now this phase begs the question, but I will try an interpretation:

History has it that you were never very good at Tower thin cracks even though you are the man of Lucille. Just could it be that slowness at placing RP's, or what Californicators call Rotten Protection? But there is one caveat: Your middle name will never be spelled as Jaybro Hong Anderson, so perhaps the history time life line cannot be seriously modified by efforts at the Tower? You elude, "difficulty irrelevant.". And yes your own history supports my assessment of your Tower short comings that was gained when you top roped Direct SouthEast and proclaimed, I wish I would have saved that for a lead", honoring a now dead verbiage of previewing not allowed.

Now history has it that at some later time Jaybro did strap on Direct SouthEast only to hang and dangle. A similar fate caused Hot Henry to lower off. Note, I used a euphemism with Henry's action of "failure", but either way these two cats did't,t have the skill-set of quick RP placing.

Hardly, Dingus. As you will recall, I didn't take RP's on that one. Hence your comment at the time, ""how'd your friends work in that one?"
I gots the chips with RP's as has been demenostrated innumerable times in the past. Crack ago go, tips et al....

What I was fishing for was someone to go up the Danse with me for my 100th Ascent!

Hardest aid climb in the world done prior to 1900. Talk about taking a huge rack. It looks like it would be 300 feet of sweet hands. That guy knew what to do with his wood.
