I just may buy Ian's helmet for myself. He'll do a lot of climbing that way.

Otherwise though, there are pieces of his gear I'll be using and I'm also going to stop into Redding to pick up some of his ashes.

The only aid climber ever to carry more chisels than heads.
Edit: Only saw the alumiheads at first, but still only 9 heads and 4 chisels.

That's a lot of gear for Pine Line. You should try to go higher, like to Sickle Ledge or something if you have all that stuff.

Drive to Yosemite with his ashes and all my stuff, jump on El Cap and at the
appropriate place and time will set Ian free on the stone he loved best!

Close Mark?

Mad props on yer fund raising/gear sale efforts for his family!

Way cool,
Tad

and there is about a 100% chance that there will be less adventure stealing heads and tat on the route when we finish it too!

Can't wait to meet you Mark. You carry celebrity status in my household. I believe I have read all or most of your TR's...but I am looking forward to this one the most!

Bags are mostly packed, but we head out in 1.5 weeks. Still need to get a couple more liters of jugs, some last minute fresh fruit. Last minute weather check will determine which sleeping bag to bring and any final clothing tweaks.

Theft at the base really puts a damper on things, we will have to a larger than desirable last load to keep from leaving anything vulnerable at the base.
