Yeah, that looks like it. Gosh, it's been so long. I'll have to dig through some boxes and see if I can find some photos. Most I have lost in the move across five countries.
Down in the canyon of the Stan after Donnells Reservoir (some great swimming holes/pools there in the canyon) there was this sweet crack, about 90', I had to do a bit of gardening, not much, but it sort of curved up to the left, hands, then fists and a bit of off-width.
My boyhood (and best) friend Brian Southworth (not really a climber) belayed me. I had bought him (North Face, Sierra Designs, I can't remember) a pair of PAs, he wasn't really into climbing. I wonder if he still has them. I'll write him, he and his family live in McKinleyville, he's about ready to retire from PG&E. His wife Cindy keeps in touch more than he does, but like my late brother Mac, Brian isn't much of a communicator.
But he was a good belayer. I must have done about 20 routes in that Stanislaus canyon. Most one-pitch. Brian wasn't great at following, so most of the routes I either down climbed or rap to clean gear. This was 1974-75. I'll write him to see if he has hung onto those PAs.
Got the guide-book this weekend. Really good book.
Tried to go to Potter's Rock to check it out, didn't realize the Forest Service had closed a lot of the roads to Donnell Reservoir. Real bummer to go all that way and find the roads closed until December.
I searched forum for a thread about all the haunt and spook out at the Lost World and didn't seem to find one...perhaps this thread is most relevant place to ask about other scary tales / experiences from the Lost World area?
The most recent R&I (issue 219) has a cool article "the Howling" about the area, read it last night before bed and it stirred my imagination like when I was young and first read Bradbury.
