How about Saber ridge 2013 as a supertopo meet? lol Or would that defeat the reason to get out somewhere less popular?

I think its safe to assume that not many would actually make the trek back there, and those that did would be a good group to be with.

I just re-found the video "Painted Spider" where Peter Croft free solos The Rostrum. Does this film exist as a dvd?

Peter, Greg, Dave and Bran, dreams come true just a lot of hard work. Mike's photo is still very inspiring. If bran hasn't shown it to you, take a look. I ought to order up a few for the four of you so you guys can autograph and date it. Good name for it, you set another standard. Wish I was watching from the summit of Boy Scout Peak when you all finished. I recall from the summit of Stewart a wall blocks the the view. Congratulation! Great Job! HARDROCK

Gawd! I had forgotten how beautiful that view is of the Dome (not really a dome - just looks like one from this perspective). It's exactly this view that drew Herbert and me to it in July 1971.

From the 1972 American Alpine Journal:

"Having chosen an impossible line on Angels Wings and having succeeded in proving it impossible, TM Herbert and I cast our eyes across Hamilton Creek to the north ridge of Hamilton Lakes Dome or Peak 9770. This prominent feature southwest of the lowest Hamilton Lake had been climbed twice before via the east ridge. Our approach was long and required forethought and success with a mossy jam crack. The climb was beautiful with seven pitches of fifth class straight up the arete - face climbing, crack climbing, good rock, bad rock, and excellent nut placements. We descended via the fourth class eastern route. NCCS II 5.7"

I'm not sure, but I think this AAJ entry is what gave Peak 9770 its name- Hamilton Lakes Dome.
