I was sure someone had hauled a keg up there sometime. It was just a matter of time before the photos surfaced. Thank you.
I'm thinking probably a good place for a keg party is Mammoth Terraces. Really spacious, you can just crash there if you are too inebriated to rap down, all you need is your jugs and rap device for the commute.
Are there other nice ledges on El Cap that would be suitable for a keg party? Anyone?
This thread is a crack up! Especially when you guys get to Burton and Sutton's all beer ascents. Harding dragged gallons (so the stories go) of wine up his everlasting first ascents! Whitey, Ed and I started dragging good whiskey and tall boys along to ease the cotton mouth from the bong hits!:)
Last June Matt "Lambone" Lambert, Joey and I hauled 27 beers up Zodiac. Caldera IPA's and Cobras-maybe a couple Rolling Rocks in for shits and giggles. All I know is that each night ended with a complete Pink Floyd album and some cold quality bevies with a bitchen view...
I once was cleaning up with others after an aborted attempt on the Nose (leader fell 30 feet above the base). Two haul sacks: one gear, one all beer. Now in Napa we'd do all wine. Of course, we'd never make it past Syckle Ledge, but who'd care?
