Is there internet service in Almo or somewhere near? Cell service? Have not one, but two (boo) conference calls I need to do while there.

Any temperature is going to be like a cold front for those in Boulder these days. I'm in the Houston area enjoying some cooler weather. Poor BN is stuck in the Boulder Sahara.

See you soon!

Skully: I'll see if I can find Seth & friends. Brokedown & I have a "warm-up" spot near Twin Sisters.

Crimpergirl! Yes to cell and internet in Almo, but not at COR. Verizon & ATT for sure in Almo.

The State Park HQ now works with a internet provider to give access to 20 minutes of free wireless internet daily and reasonable rates beyond that.

When did they reopen Twin Sisters?

I last climbed the Sisters like 15 years plus ago. My second or third time. Last time I remember they were off limits, "banned".


Something stupid about polluting the view-shed with climbers. But once they closed it, I followed the closure.


One of the nicer routes in the COR, and the actual route is on the opposite side of the view-shed...

When did it get reopened? Or did it?

You guys hitting the register (Camp Rock) next, down at the entrance?

Go away now, "Magnet"... You did this to yourself.


On another note, Rock city pizza store(!) seems to have the best signal to The World, wireless, anyway.
Dig it Ray....You could meet & climb with Jebus H Bomz. A real guy, that climbs rocks(!).

Going up this weekend! Hopefully I can get some pics up after the trip, and maybe if I'm lucky meet the legend Donini.

When did they reopen Twin Sisters?

I think the Twin Sisters area, with camping, has always been open excepting the main, namesake formations, the Twin Sisters themselves. There's a gob of climbing (and some nice campsites) out there.

Uhhh...I mean, yeah, its closed, its closed! Ha ha.

The Elephant Rock walk off is OK nowadays.

Gallstone is on, too. As is Checkered Demon. Ditto the climbs to the left of Just Say No on Elephant (along with the aforementioned walk off).

As far as Twin Sisters...only the main formations are closed (the two Twins).

With regard to the Twin Sisters, I know folks are takin' a run at it again:

Word on the street was this was going to be a tough row to hoe with the SHPO folk.

Yeah, be tough to see climbers from the road, or, the historic trail. The best routes do face the road. Pioneer Route, Cowboy Route, Lowe Route, Straight Edge...all face the road. All great routes.

Jebus!

(Christ!)

Brokedown & I just missed you and Kovar.

I got to COR late Monday, and we drove out to Twin Sisters early Tuesday for some warmup climbs we like. Talked to your friends that were loading up, and they told us you were off to Morning Glory. We had camped just above there.

Next time for sure!

We did get to climb and party with Locker and his friends!

He was most amused about you stopping him for looking like Locker!

Heh. Next time for sure, Fritz. We heard about your visit when we got back to camp. We just squeezed in Skyline in the a.m. and then packed up to get on the road.

Seeing Locker was pretty funny, he was checking out your camp by King on the Throne from his Taco. It helps that his face is digitally juxtaposed onto every iconic image I think I've ever seen. It was like looking at a dollar bill. Legit.

I am looking forward to the July 3rd Meet & Greet for Crimpergirl, Brassnuts, and Pente.

Details to follow!

I got back late Weds from a fun time with Brokedown Climber, Locker, and his three climbing friends from Colorado.

Locker & Brokedown!
