If you take a peek at the poster it is a picture that captures the moment - you can see Mark smiling in the background with his skies in the ready. This ascent predates the Face Off by about 8 years ……….

I'm remembering now that photo I believe is in the guide.

Enjoy and love that spirit in the poster.

That's back when the air was clean and sex was dirty..

Glad you got the Evolv Schwag! Linda, the rep, is a sweet gal and hooked me up. I'm glad Adam got it to ya.

I'm also throwing in three one pound bags of Mark Hudon's amazing Deschutes River Blend Coffee.
It'll be bagged in airtight coffee bags with a photo of Tollhouse on the front and a label that says TOLLHOUSE ROCK BLEND. Good stuff. I really hope I can make it up there, but my kid has an all day equestrian event. Maybe I can make it up for the evening sesh.

WHat time is the raffle?

The lower gate on the old toll road is closed but the bypass is very passable with a 4X4 thanks to SCE. Made it to the Cap Rock and back today with no events in a standard 4X.

Looking forward to seeing you at the event...dwight

Hi Dwight,

I've never been, and am planning to come up. Do you guys camp up at the cap rock?

I'll be driving a late model Tacoma full cab long bed (a long vehicle) with excellent clearance but 2WD with a limited slip rear. Tires are big and burly but not off road. Whadda ya think?

I don't think my better half and best partner can come. If I show up solo do you think anyone will tie in with me? I don't climb in skis or dresses, but I could dig up some red lycra...

Hey kris and friends...just show up. The road up is 4x but good thanks to SCE. Weather Is predicted to be sunny and 75+ both days. Lots of partnerless folks and folks from climbing gyms out to experience great western sierra granite slab. Need mentors to the granite experience...so come on out!
I'm spending the night with the expectation of doing the TT Traverse at midnight.

Gonna be a great event...dwight

BTW...great swag!
