One bivy we received an annoying drip from up high so we had to set up the fly at night.



A reachy hook on the False Ace In Space A3+ This is where the old RURP belay used to be.



Nice golden rock on the groovy arch




That's it for tonight.

Hook or Book:



Here's what I think is an original Bird Beak I cleaned on the last nailing pitch



Here I'm leading the real Ace In Space pitch, A4. You continue out the seam right and hook up the grey rock you see up & right.



Steel like rock up high on the Peruvian Flakes, out of the diorite now & back into granite.

Tommy, thanks for the tips, now I got things figured out. Not a fixed rope on the Hook or Book. There's a horozontal hooking section that goes across the wall from a rivet to a section of 3 equalized heads where you hook for about 50 feet with no pro. I'm using a Stratos rope so it may look kinda fat. It also looks like I'm moving into an offwidth crack but that feature is hundreds of feet off to my right.

Forget the wall photos, er, I mean,
*Not that there's anything wrong with it*,
And it's fab fun takin' a peak at the big danger on SOD,
But is that upthread shot of Cybele not the Siren call or what?

sincerity, vulnerability, strength...

"Caught between Scylla & Charybdis" is more like it, I'm thinking. It is a good pic of Cybelle however. I'll post up some others gimme a few moments to get 'em into photobucket & I'll blow 'em on here.

I remember driving out the Suicide with E and we both were so psyched to climb we could barely stand it. That was 30 years ago and the old fart is still going strong. Same with Bill. Amazing to think theyve stayed psyched this long. One of the great things is how much fun Ive had with these guiys. A couple years ago Bill and I were involved in doing aome new routes in Malibu and on some obscure areas in the Santa Monica mountains. These were piss ant little routes on absolutely garbage rock (remember Mt. Olympus?? Just a giantic dirt clod). But Bill was still so psyched we could barely keep him tied down. So wed do the routes with all the likely subjects (Katz, Oliphant, et al) and then those jokers would smoke like 100 pipeloads and climb everything five more times for good measure and tell jokes all the way out on the hike.

Theres a lot of love for just being alive in all of this, and thats a good thing.

I was just waitin' for the right instant to chime in; thanks Largo. This seems to be it.

Eric, has been one of the big brothers and mentors I often think about in stressful moments. What would the great E do now? Probably load up a big bowl and do what has to be done.

As for this face (as was mentioned before), Mr. E has amazingly gotten better by the year. I quite remember my first visit to Suicide the morning after our White Maiden epic, though we were a bunch of geeks, he warmly took me up a host of routes like Arcy Farcy etc. Then a few years later, while I suffering from a high school breakup with a girlfriend, Eric hauled to to Tuolomne to clear my head. Boy E, Golden Bars, Fort Knox and Handbook sure seemed hard back then!

I quite remember E's ability to eat a hamburger in record time. By the time I had my wrapper open, he had the entire slab in his mouth and masticated it down. Of course neither of us eat such junkfood these days.

Levy and Cybele are way cool too.
