Quite alright as some folks here seem convinced that I have no balls anyhow...Might as well keep 'em guessing. LOL

Coming out...to Boulder has been a blast! More fun coming down the track tonight.

I need to raise some money to hold the hall for next years Oakdale Climbers Festival so I have been digging around in the vault and would like to put one of these signed Clay Wadman 1999 edition full width El Capitan wall posters up for sale. It is signed by 19 ElCap FAers and I am asking $500.



If you are a signature collector there are more than just a few notables on the list including Chuck Kroger and Scott Davis.


Make it an even 20 with Mister Midwest, Bill Russell!

It looks to me like the same person signed all those autographs.

Oakdale is taken care of at this point.

Buy a signed Half Dome 50th anniversary commemorative piton for $250 to benefit Clark Jacobs! You get the piton and Clark gets the cash.

Your choice of the remaining numbered pitons. I will cover the shipping in North America.

I do but they are in storage right at the moment so I will try and locate them for you.

I just landed five early Chouinard horizontals and a very early RURP bought in 1960 directly from the trunk of Yvon's car. YC had been living on oatmeal and was very happy to make the sale. He had one box full of pitons and another full of Alcoa carabiners as the story was told to me, selling hardware the old fashioned way.

I am just now feeling BAD,

I placed a rusty two inch angle as a fixed point,

a directional for rope soloing & top ropeing with kids.

Is there more than a nostalgic value ?

Do you want, other such a pins?

I have lost touch with the Maven of the Warren !.


Maven,

A maven (also mavin) is a trusted expert in a particular field,
who seeks to pass knowledge on to others.
The word maven meaning "one who understands",
based on an accumulation of knowledge. - From wiki.

Warren
It evolved from the Anglo-Norman concept of free warren,
which had been, essentially, the equivalent of a hunting license for a given woodland.
The word thus became used for a piece of ground preserved for these climbers/ beasts of warren.

It is now applied loosely to any piece of ground, whether preserved or not,
where climbers/rabbits breed (see FOREST LAWS).

The use is further extended to any system of burrows, e.g. prairie dog warren.
By 1649 the term is found applied to inferior, crowded human accommodations,
in the meaning "cluster of densely populated living spaces" (OED).

Contemporarily the leading use seems to be in the stock phrase "warren of cubicles" in the workplace.


This is my 1st attempt, to cryptic by more than half,

I will make smoke signals and thunder dance

to see if I can raise a response,

It might happen.

It might not.
