That was about the time when Yabo free soloed the North Overhang naked at night and we took all his clothes so he wouldn't find them when he got down....but he knew we were gonna steal them ahead of time and hid a secret clothes stash somewhere else. We were all right below him when he did the crux - insane view of the "crack" - we couldn't stop laughing - poor guy, good thing he could keep it together...RIP bro.

He did it all for a nugget of "chocolate" !

Nope not me, I was in a frozen tundra that Josh season.

Funny, Yabo going for the chocolate. Must of lit up the campground getting the full moon like that.

JB, As I remember it, Yabo was promised $5 or so. But the chocolate makes a better story.

Yes that is Angione on the right.

As I finish packing up the camper for my umpteenth trip to JT I am tending to agree with T Gordon that these are the goood old days. Each trip has some outlandish event, be it a climbing achievement or laughing so hard around the camp fire that I cripple myself. JTree keeps on giving.
I will digress. My first visit to the monument was filled with shinanagens. My friend(we'll call him Todd for privacy issues), and I loaded up the truck in Chico and got a couple of names from the ride board at the university to lessen the burden of driving and gas costs. We picked up the girls who were headed to Orange County and they offered to drive 1/2 way. I let them take the wheel while Todd and I crawled in the back to rip a bunch of B-loads. The girls didin't want either of us driving so they drove all the way to Orange, Todd and I do the Spicolli roll out barely able to walk and make the rest of the trip to the park. Waking up to some super human guy (Too Srong Dave?) ripping up evryboulder problem in the camp and then soloing every route in eyeshot. Mind numbing. After a morning of introductory routes we head to Illusion Dweller, on the way we observe a guy passed out in the dirt under his truck with tall boy buds all around him(Tucker? ) We do illusion dweller and walk back towards the parking lot and there is the guy who was past out an hour ago belaying Hidataka Suzuki on Some like it Hot with a cigarette dangling out his mouth and really not paying much attention to his partner. Classic Form. He hits us up for some weed and trades a few hexs for a joint, I think he got the better deal! A true lasting memeory of that two week stay was that we never taped up. OOOPS. I still have the scars today.
Cheers, JAMES

Talk about Slander.

You guys know which magazine that B/W picture is on the back cover of the current issue, eh?

Wait for it.

"nugget" -- silly me.

Yah, couple weeks ago the people at Nomad's pointed out the shot on the back of "Urban Climber". Kinda seemed an odd place for that particular picture.

"Sex, Drugs & Rock" was the caption. Not sure about the sex part.

With regards to the chasm. My friend also tried to show me the entrance. It has collapsed. We wandered around for quite some time to find the back entrance and he showed me what remained. It was a pretty fun rock scramble down in there!

Craig: Rumors of Black Diamond ('Nimbo Clatus') being poorly bolted are overblown. It has been lead by a number of people. Certainly adequately protected for anyone climbing at the grade.

I won't step into the quagmire of adding bolts to existing routes, particularly remote and difficult climbs about which no one has complained about the protection.

THE BLOODLINE 5.12a FA: Todd Battey, Dave Evans, Craig Fry and Rob Stahl. March, 1989; FFA: Eric Erickson and Craig Fry.

Does this sound right?

Great seeing you and everyone else.

The Mountain Project (formally site is a user created/contribution site. So there are going to be mistakes, omissions and stuff depending on the who originally contributed the info. I doubt that any of these mistakes are intentional.

So the best thing you can do CF is to submit a comments correcting info. Often Chris Miller (one of the site admistrators) incorporates this stuff to the original route posting.

And Dr. F, speaking of theft. Didn't you steal my supergood pal Tarbuster from me, just when things were getting interesting?
