Just can't find privacy anywhere anymore!
Yeah! What the hell? I just want to crawl up the side of a cliff in the middle of the biggest National park clusterf*#k in the country and groove on the solitude. You're intruding, Tom.

Your work gets better and better - great to see it!

You got some real nice glass going on there, and your compositions are really getting dialed in -


Thanks Tom

Duh... there is no solitude next to a road where thousands of Tourons stop to look at the great rock, and watch climbers.... so .... get over it! Go climb Half Dome or a zillion other rocks here if you want to be stealthy. Reality... learn to deal with it. Make adjustments. And if the ElCap Report is not to your liking then don't read it! If no one reads it then it will go away. But, thousands of people seem to find it interesting enough.

Hey Tom, have you seen Luke and Kieran lately? They were Canadians up on Salathe wall this past week. I think they may have had a beer with ya. Maybe they punted their electronic devices off the wall. Sunburst colored pig.

I did see them after they did the LTower but I think the weather is putting them off for a bit now.

Is that the beginning of the Shield headwall a couple of pix up? That was the route I always wanted to do.

It's Kieran leading over the big roof and looking up the Salathe headwall.
