I need either a bunch of 0 and 00 cams or a bunch of KBs, I suppose. Two fixed pins up high and an empty baby angle hole at the lower of two overhanging cruxy spots. The whole thing is subvertical in a major way. I think that it might go totally free (has it?). I need a ton of green c3s. Like 6.

Clean wingate cleft clear recently (in the Ga sense). South facing goodness.

Pin scars and lichen and knott too many that be lichen it.

Cold clear perfect air magic mountain distant secret canyons nearer.
To live.

What a flop today. Why did I think Arizona choss would be more appetizing than Oregon choss?

I went out shamblin' around my local wilderness... "Look at all these FA's just waiting to go..." Then reality hit... "this sh#t is crap". That's why there's no anchors on top... anyone with the skill to get there knows better.

Gettin' off the couch after a decade has me thinking everything looks good. No partner, rollin the clove hitch, brick sized pieces falling off and me with no helmet... foolish. Backed off at 20'.

Still, saw burros, a tarantula, pottery shards, evidence of knapping, found a hidden grotto. Sun shining on my face, just me and the coyotes and cactus for a few hours.

I guess it was a win after all.

Speelyei, I call BS! Go do it if you feel called to do so!

Even if you don't summit, even if you summit some piece of crap that no one will call a tower, you will encounter the arachnid and the softstone, you may dance with death, and most days you will walk away strangely satisfied, aware and accepting of your alone-ness, and proud. I guarantee you that no matter what, you will be happier there than you would be at, say, Rifle, or some other developed area full of chuffers talking grades, not really doing anything new.

Two good photographers like speelyei (sp?) and thebravecowpoke should band together and shoot each other.

Choss kidding, mate! I'm only the piano player, off the stool myself and I like climbing on sh#t, too.

Here's he stool I came up to and got on top of.

It's on private land, first, (but I had permission, for a change), I needed to walk DOWN to get to climb UP to it, then I noticed the leafless PO I'd walked through to get there, so the adventure continues with the rash watch.

And there were the typical forest leavings on top from critters.

Trundlebait Tiptop. It's in the Rawhide Mobile Home Park across from the Grotto. There is a f*#king driving range next to it. My brother is a golfer and hits "rocks" he shags from the out of bounds areas.

We went on a ball round-up while waiting for the turkey to cook. We went to the bottom of the draw beneath his single-wide mobile, took the dog, too. Then I decided to take a different route back up and this helped to find more balls (I found 13, he only found 12 using Sasha's nose, even) and come out below this boulder. I climbed straight up to it, diretissima. Then I used the Reilly factor and knew I was gonna die if I kept THAT sh#t up, so I circled it and picked the easiest line, which still involved an airy step-across-&-around maneuver, while wearing a pack loaded with photographic equipment and "rocks." Luckily, I didn't need the tripod to get these spectacular results.

The turkey was perfection, too.

Tim's drives seem to average about two thirty, factoring in the roll, but you can't really tell--it's forest.
Not a turkey feather.

There was a mini-saga going on when I arrived to visit. There was an egg hatching, or trying to become a squab, and it took a lot of Tim's attention. Despite his ministrations, which meant little, really, it failed to keep itself alive. If yer gonna die, yer gonna die.

I like thebravecowboy's veneer of sneering at death, while shitting bombs.

May you and all of us die where we are happiest and with the least inconvenience to our bothers and sisters.

But having lived this long, I think that for my part, I'll keep practicing the Reilly Factor and live a bit longer, por favor.

Life is good, climbing only makes it better.
