If you like Exasperator, then cruise Mr Natural.
Start via Apron Jam to get warmed up ;-)

the wink is because Apron Jam is non-trivial. kind of like caboose.
Mr Natural is fun. the crack is straightforward, the crux is about 5 feet of slab just before the bolts.

don't know what the state of the bolts is nowadays, but you might enjoy a longer slab climb like Lucifers Ledge or Coonyard or Hoppy's Favorite.

Neither Apron Jam nor Mr Natural is In the supertoprope guide... Better check relic's Reid guide...... I can see the peace arch.... Maybe they'll let us in the states soon??

Big Mike, Miguel grande is how it goes here, and Mike's my older bro's name and he's big, too. Howdy to California, the State of Gold, home or the 4.9ers. Defiers of and creators of specious ratings systems. Robbins, Frost, Chongo's illegitimate kid, they all welcome you and hope you can stick around for Oakdayle.

Welco a California.



Climb Peter Pan or you are not a man. Peter H. will not agree.

Repeat: Do not utter the word Cali; in my hearing, at least.

There's a small town on the way into the Valley, several in fact. One in particular may jog your memory.

It's Whatchama, California, but we just call it Whatchamacallit.

If that is too confusing, call me, pm me, or give me the finger of fate on the way through Whatcamacallit.

Then I will be able to help you. Give you a hand clasp in the ether. Send you on your way. I'm here twenty-four hours a day. I mean it, if I can further your voyage, let me know. Otherwise, hope you get where you are going.

El Portal beckons. In Peter Pan the Darkness awaits. Bring wide. Enjoy your ride, Clyde. Might want knee pads on any ow, but you're BIG Mike, so you should know that by now.

Hey ghost, very nice to meet you last night as well.

I promise I will disconnect but right now how can you beat supertopo at 10000 feet? This certainly wasn't possible the last time I flew... Sorry I didn't say goodbye Kieran but I was late as it was so I just didn't have time! Now stop reading supertopo and go wash some windows dammit! ;)

It was looking a little wet out still at sea-tach......

Leaving aside the $64,000 question, which is how to fit Big Mike into an aircraft seat... At nearly two metres tall, that must take some doing.

Anyway, had you simply driven, you'd be there by now. Hee hee.
