Nice chalkbag on that girl, good enough to go elbow deep for the wide cracks.

I'll go ya one more, Off White, you Rake:

Hawkins and I were climbing with this nice lass at the Lions Den, Dead Man, which is in a pretty nice lava bed sink hole. She's doing this wicked stem above us on a route called Fear of Flying, Hawkins, ganders about, says: "Pretty Nice Little Crater, Eh?"

I'm not the bad man.
I'm the good man.

'K, JayBra:
Thanks for going easy on Helga, per the layback on Coynes.
Yes, nice Layback anyhow.

Believe this: the shot on Coyne's was taken in the fall of '87.
When I met her in my YMS class, spring of '87, she could climb 5.6, tops.

So, name that route, 'Neb Thread: whatabout the Granite she's leadin', summer '88 - next shot below Coynes?

'K,'K pretty amazing, all things considered.
The granite looks perfect, don't know it.

Oh man, that was good. You guys are killing me. That line at the Lion's Den will live in infamy!

End of last installment:
Looks like Bob is on Stone Groove.

Don't the Gorge look good in black & white? You guys know you can lead Hangman's now? Yup. Retrobolted. I can't complain though. It's a fun little route. Harder now that that rail down low has been manicured with a pry bar. Change is th only constant.
