Oh c'mon Dan,

Let's see the lower section.


It depends on the definition of what "in" is

That's looking pretty meaty to me

It would be pretty cool to do The Tears with no snow on the ledges

yeh kevin, the bonus for me would be walking down without having snow up to the armpits and wallowing for miles like the last couple times!!!:)

were getting the fairly low temps at night, but its shorts weather at the cookie during the day, so i know its pretty wet up there. im crossing my fingers for colder temps. seems like everything ive climbed here is wet though, till it gets dark and then of coarse we still have climbing to do and the ropes all freeze up to 15mm, and you cant use the belay devise. good thing we were taught the body belay! sometimes i wonder if these things should be best climbed at night when its cold and dry???
kev got any fa shots of widows you can share?

Mark has the WT photos, Dan, what few there are.

That descent is a hellish gully wallow if you went the way we did. I remember Minx being covered with snow from head to toe, as he was wearing all pile, and we were basically ploughing our way down the gully sometimes in control, sometimes not so much. Fun times.

Hi Dan-

Dreaming... above, refers to my thoughts of climbing some of these climbs...

Great shots you have captured posted here!

Hoping to get on some of that soon. Are you looking for partners?

Cheers, Brian

Warbler, much respect to you for your ascent of that badboy back in the day, it ranks very high in the history of Yosemite climbing in my opinion.

What fosburg said.

Warroll is bad to the bone.

You'd never catch me up there, I'll instantly turn into a popsicle .....

It had to be done...

I mean, look at that line! You just can't ignore something like that if you're a climber.


We had a lot of time on our hands and didn't know we weren't ready for it til we topped out.


Git up there, Werner, you'd have a blast. Get Dan to drag you up it if you turn into a popsicle.

I feel this is the year for you
