Bump for Mike Sherrick
"bumped" into Mike and his wife (sorry I can't remember her name) at old Donner Summit this summer. Very nice people. I'd forgotten he'd bagged this one.

Basil Darling, who was one of the "clients" on the first attempt in 1913, was a badass in his own right - plenty of hard technical first ascents in the local mountains near Vancouver BC, including the NE buttress of the West Lion, solo, and also the FWA of the West Lion.

Interesting that the second ascent of the Kain route was done by Dmitri Nabokov, son of the novelist.
At least he channeled his energies into healthy outdoor avenues.

I think Robson leads my list of mountains I wished I'd climbed.

This was the best of the old CAJs but there are lots of good accounts in the AAJ especially if Fred was involved. I have to poke my nose into that time period to interview John Rupley in the near future and will get started on Don's career.

I believe that Dave Cheesmond and Tony Dick climbed the Wishbone in the early 80's then traversed the mountain and did a new route (so far unrepeated) on the Emperor Face. They had an incredible spell of good weather.
Talk about an enchainment. The big Cheese was an incredible climber.
