I will be in back in Americaca for the summer and into the fall.

You have to admire the accomplishments of Steck-very few people have maintained his level of climbing for such a long time. An incentive for all.

Going to get Hennek off his ass and into the mountains for some fun trips. Plan on a trip into the Winds for the first time since 1964-heard it really hasn't changed that much? Guess i ought to ask Kelsey that.

Have great intentions of scanning and digitizing over 20 boxes of memoirs, currently in storage.. Photos, letters and the odd bit of hysterical trivia. Would be fun to dribble it onto ST when I see relevant postings. I just did a search on Sacherer postings. Fascinating all the input and experiences I was unaware of. Think I could write an entire book on trips with him.

Quite entertaining to follow the climbing scene of today. One can only guess where it will be in twenty years.

According to Breedlove's old Livesey guide, this whole rig is like 5.6+. Good go anyways!

More like 5.6++.*

Anyway SS is harder now because stuff that you used to be able to climb has fallen off.

Have you done that route recently Ryan? For me, it was probably 1974 or 75. None of the climbing seemed particularly hard (then) but I was tired in those upper chimneys.

* (Livesey's ratings are not reliable. Like many visitors to the Valley, he fell into the trap of thinking that his personal ratings were more important than the consensus rating.)

Hey, where did this thing come from?

Hey donini,
My list this year was going to be LAC again, Basketcase and My Favorite Things. We'll see how it goes, oh yeah!
