Hope someone gets to do it.
I've got the tools and a fast car, but it ain't gonna be me.

Where's Waugh when you need him? Or Jack Roberts? I bet I could get Waugh to haul me up that thing!

It looks sooooo thick that I am actually considering how to get there and with whom...

Hoping for the same Doug!

Looks like it could be there for a couple months.

Great pic! It does look really quite fat.

I'm hoping, like Flanders, that it hangs in there (because like Doug, I'm in Ouray, too).

I asked Eric yesterday if he had his ice tools, he said yes, but that he hadn't really used them in a bit (or at all)... I left mine at home, knowing deep down that I didn't have a partner for that sort of insanity... oh well, one can always hope for continued conditions, but it is California, and if you're not on it now, when it is in, well, you know the story...

and damn, I missed that one time in many decades that Yosemite Falls was in, for a few hours, probably long enough to solo that smear...

be careful out there y'all, ice is nice but rock does...

No updates on this? Was hoping that someone with a fast car, new screws and lots of enthusiasm would have popped it off by now...

Some guys with serious expressions on their faces were looking at it
through binoculars yesterday.
There may have been drooling involved, but I'm not positive.

A couple of you guys from Cali better get it together and climb that thing, else I'm gonna buy some airline tickets, bring a posse of CO greenies out and turn the Widows Tears into a peg board.

Just dreaming. I would love to do it, but Cody is calling for MLK Day.
