i just spoke to the person who removed my lines and now know the whole story. apparently, this person was asked by a person in uniform if he could take the lines down that were mine. no idea who that person in uniform was. kind of unprecedented...a ranger asking an unknown climber to remove fixed lines. without that little push, my ropes would have been there for me to remove on dec 4th. as it was, they were taken down ten days before that, on 11/23.

anyway, on the recovery effort, a couple of noobs were along and one of them got scared on the last fixed rope, and basically had to be rescued off the rope, and that was the end of the rope retrieval effort, and why the last rope never got cleaned off.

so, we had a great talk about it, and hit it off on the phone and are even thinking about roping up for the big stone next year. go figure! ss

In a better world we would have allowed for this as a possibility right at the start.

By direct description the ropes looked like crap. Wasn't this enough?

That's a relief. My car was broken into a couple months back and I know what its like to get robbed. Now on to the next supertaco drama ....

Fixed lines on Real Nose, who's trying to bag it?
