Congrats Mikey. Saw your ledge, was wondering what was going on up there...don't see too many ledges on MC.

Nice work, Mikey.

I've been scoping that line for a long time, and it's about time somebody with the time got on it. I didn't think it would be that hard - sounds like you gotta want it bad. Looks pretty smooth off the ledges...

Father Time.

Cool name too. My last big route in Yosemite was father time for me, since then it's been mostly kid time.

Congratulations, way to keep the spirit alive!

Nicely done, Mikey. Loved your TR, man.
Great pics, too. I'll bet you were inspired by the lizard visit. He's like " c'mon, man, you can do this sh#t, too!" Then you pop a couple pushups......Hehehe.
Diggin' it all.

Great people are keeping the Middle stoke alive. Sorta wished we would have worked on a few hard things. The only really hard stuff Kevin and I did was Mother Earth and Black Primo and I don't think either of those get any traffic. Father Time looks like the Next Step, and a mighty big one at that. You guys have to be stoked. I am and I'm just eyeballing the pics.

As usual, Jeff Johnson took some great shots!
