I'm pretty sure that's the Lisa that was Ivo's girlfriend for a bit. She's really nice, and pretty strong too. I'm pretty sure she worked ski resorts in Utah in the winter and bummed around the valley and what not in the summer.

For anyone wondering... The pic in the article above is of BadAss Momma. Great, steep OW climb!

Where's the rest of the article, Juan?

One of my old climbing partners was quite a practical joker. He knew some of his buddies were heading over to the Generator Crack, so he got there early with an effigy of himself he had made by stuffing his usual climbing outfit including his always present hat. He suspended said effigy near the top of the crack, and when his buddies arrived they thought it was him topping out free solo. Then of course he cut the dummy loose...

I went once with a friend who hadn't been there before. While parking the car she looked
out at the crack on the side facing the road: "That doesn't look so bad!"

it is true- it does not look so bad if you have big gear, quart of RedBull, headlamp and long summer day to summit

Would you believe in the early seventies I never went down to look at this crack? Still have never seen it.

Rhodo-Router,

> Guess you got that 6 out finally.

Yes, Alexey's #6 is out of Blind Faith and back with him, although I don't know if his photo of Generator is new and if he has more than one #6:

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1903416&msg=1912893#msg1912893

I got to meet Alexey last Saturday night for the cam return, what a nice guy. The next day, I found another big green Camalot, all by myself this time, and got it out in 10 minutes also. It was a good 3 weekends for getting (4) big cams unstuck!
[Edit:] it was on Edge of Night, and it was an old style #5.

Where did you find the second #6, Clint? What luck!

The easiest cam "recovery" I ever had was a single-stem BD #5. Dead of winter, trod through snow to get to the climb, and there it was, clipped to a bolt at a 3rd pitch anchor on the SW base of El Cap. How it got left there I'll never know.

I put up a note in Camp 4, made a post here, and asked around at the gym... nada. Now me and Nutjob share that cam back and forth as needed. What a mystery.

Isn't there still a girl fixed at the crux from a couple of Facelifts ago???
