You mean Jay you have bikes stashed out this a way?
I have a buddy who is a teacher in Denver, at a low income school, and he needs bike stuff for the kids bike club...

In '81 after returning to Yosemite from Mt Rainier I sold my Super Guides to this guy from WA, who's name was Massioli. I had met him while we were up there. Mike Paul and I had climbed the Edmonds Glacier Headwall over by the Mowitch Face, which is approached from Paradise.

I had purchased a pair of those white Koflach (used) from REI to try out on Rainier and needed the added warmth. I also liked the boots Trappeur made; a model called the Rebuffat or Proffessional Baud rock climbed quite well.

Massioli was stoked to try out my Super Guides on the boulders at camp 4. He was a neat guy. He later perished on something like the Moonflower Buttress route on Mt Hunter or some such Alaskan Peak. I have seen reference to this in a photo taken just before rockfall took him.

Actually mine are in Cali, but, I may know of a stash up north of you in big wonderful, I'll check it out when I'm up there next month.

Found a beaut in Davis, ca the other day; a schwin, looks older than me but they didn't make ten speeds that long ago. Narrow tubes, almost like rebar musta weighed fidy.

I have a pair of those white whale koflachs, too!

Rhodo, Yer a Tuff Task Master.
Al Righty Then:

So there I was, all shrouded in glory,
We were on our way to bag Longs Peak;
Thought it would be cool to do a loop,
After Conquering Meeker's Ridge.

But we were stopped on our impromptu add on by the Notch,
Seen here just left of the summit of Longs,
Right there above my Darlin' Wife:

We had a 40 foot chunk of rope,
And there is a perfunctory rappel into the Notch,
So we went home, back down Meeker's Ridge as originally planned.

Looking down the alternate and actual SE Ridge of Meeker,
"The Meeker Ridge", so visible from front range locale:

It would make a good run...

Back down outa' the Iron Gates:


And at Last,
The 2005 USATF Masters Mt Runner of the year cools her feet.
She just won the 2006 National Mtn Running Champs Masters Division on Mt Washington Last Week:

Does anybody know the name of the ridge that seperates the Wetterhorn from the Matterhorn? That thing was tough in the rain.rg

I looked at it, as I like that kind of ridge rumble action.
I do not know of a name. I remember seeing an add photo of one of our Rasta Haired Colorado Ultra Runners pumping up it...
