Great read. Blown away to find Steve Sereda's entry (essay) in the register. Typical Steve.

The current register. There are two registers up there and I should have photographed at least part of the older one. Oh well. This covers 10-1-1990 to 6-10-1012.

Cool, thanks for the shots. Many familiar names. I hope to get my initials in there this summer. Never have time to read those things when I'm up there, you saved me the bother - thanks!

This trip report is extremely interesting. This is the first time I ever saw a picture of the late Tim Harrison, who did the FA of "Willie's Handjive" (5.11a) on Lembert Dome. I think "Willie's" was one of the first 5.11a face climbs in YNP. It's also interesting to me personally because Mt Starr King was my first time climbing with an early iteration of the Carlmont Alpine Club in October 1961 when I was a freshman in high school. I think the group did a 4th class route to the summit of SK. And because most of the kids in the group had not been checked out rappelling, we had to lower them down with goldline ropes done up in a dulfersitz arrangement. Still, some of them were nearly cut in half as we lowered them over a small roof that bisected the slab at half height. Lots of rope burns. Walking wounded. Don't know where we camped exactly, but think it was down by the creek. Someone recently collected all the old signatures in the SK register and, lo and behold, it contained the signatures the Carlmont Alpine Club left there in 1961.
