Enjoy your trip to the desert guys.

Breaking news :

Oops wrong thread...

Apparently another species of humans coexist with us and three complete genome sequences have been done on them.

I would venture to say that another species of human is not all that coexist with us. Only time will tell.

Me too Dwain. I even tried to get Bruce to plan this trip around you being here but it just wasn't to be. Next time for sure!!!

Travis told me he gave you a new rope. I'm super happy he did and at the same time a little disappointed because I was hoping to surprise you with one...

Omelette house eh? Harry very kindly offered to put me up on my last night here since Bruce is leaving a day before me, and he's in charleston so maybe then??

There is an in-n-out just down the block so I am definitely getting A animal burger on the way home tomorrow!!

Jefe us pasty white dudes don't get to see cacti to often!! ;)

Thanks Travis!! Bruce only wanted me to upload 4 pics to save bandwidth on his 3G but I just could t resist posting more... ;) oops...

I am taking a mandatory rest day tomorrow, having climbed seven out of the last ten days and the last three back to back including today.

So this is a late call out for a partner for Big Mike tomorrow. Mike is climbing fast and strong, he's solid.

Thanks in advance.

When is Easter?

Sorry, I'm not Catholic enough to know, but it's generally around mid-Spring, is that right? If you guys are coming down here then, I'd like to join the fun.

If you're looking for a semi-rest day, find someone to tie on with and head up Prince of Darkness. The technical grade is 10c, but it's all bolt-protected and low-stress. Dream of Wild Turkeys (right next door) is probably better, but there's something to be said for low-stress.

Okay, caveats: the first pitch is not bolt-protected, but it's also really easy. i.e. low-stress. And the last pitch is actually a real crack, and you might have to place some pro, but the descent is right back down the way you came up, so you can preserve your mellow by just not doing the last pitch.

Susan- thanks! IC is on the list for sure!! Haven't been to Zion either! So many places, so little time.. I think this is the tr! I might expand on it a bit later, but I still have my Yosemite tr to put together when I get home!


We got another late start today... It didn't help that my helmet decided it wanted to camp out overnight in a bush near the start of The Great Red Book....

After a quick run up there to find it we headed over to Pine Creek Canyon to check out Birdland.

Headed up the trail..



The Brass Wall



Bruce on Birdland 5.7 (p1 5.6)



Following p2 5.7



Bruce leading p3


And that's all we had time for today.. We had to run back to the car. Gotta remember to book that late exit pass!!


Another gorgeous Vegas sunset.



And a crescent moon to boot.



Finally got my In-n-out fix!!







Double double Animal burger and a chocolate shake mmmmmmmmmmm!! That's a tasty burger!!!
