Great pics going on here.

Alik, last time I was up near the Geek I was looking at those starting cracks and noticed about three pieces of bail gear, maybe 50 ft off the ground. Wondered if that was an established route, start of Freestone, or what. Looks wild, by your excellent pics.

I have almost EXACTLY the same pics of Homer's Nose and the Watchtower but taken in about 1977.

I went up about three pitches on the Watchtower that winter SOLO... What a dumb kid I was!

Ha! Well duh, that makes way more sense. I'll blame that one on being tired :)


Edit: ec, is that a picture of a fall on north to the bone? Maybe a pendulum?

How about the Shield, just outside of Albuquerque? Anyone been up any of the grade Vs?

I tried it back around 1974, when I was a freshman in high school. Got within 2 pitches of the summit. Never tried again.
