MOUSE, you should know this; when you pass 64 years of age, you can then see through steel. It's amazing. Ask Donini. The powers are terrific.

This is of course a visual pun on the word "nose'. Sharky has an extra pointy nose this morning and the presumption is J-Do would last about a minute on this "live" mountain somewhat reminiscent of our very own Cerro Torre. And a reverie too on J-Do's NIAD coming up with the indefatigable G-Lo. I think this whole thing is awfully fun. I am already threatening to add J-Do to my "El Rushmore" image too. Maybe lower down, though, say on Mammoth Terraces, rather than on the heights with Lincoln and G-Wash 'n stuff.

Brownie, absolutely you goddit. I like the Robert the Bruce avatar, btw.

Holy sinus Batman!

Careful: watch out for post nasal drips. They abound, but do not abide.

Well no wonder you know about D's nose. You're quite observant & knowledgeable.

R the B was from Scotland just like my father's father.

I was named after him (Bruce).

Nose in an hour is completely feasible.

Climb the Nose. Down-climb the Nose. Do it like you minute. Be steely-eyed Donini.

The thousand-hand stare.

In light of half of art being how the viewer chooses to interact with it, I'm sticking with this being Donini's Nose (and not El Cap's)!

Rising...Great White style for the tidbit du jour!

The topo in ten seconds. A little more for Roper. I carry his version from the first time I read it.
