hi all, come on how, like climbers are really going to go up there if i post stuff on the net, and how many times have you been there???, and if you do go alot, how many climbers have you seen there???, most climbers want to go to t-meadows and or the valley, not southern yosemite! i think it's a good thing to share all this beauty with others, that is one of the problems with southern yosemite, is no one wanted to share info, on fa's and stuff they put up, and the end result was and is people bolting over established routes, the same routes with multiple names, and a ton of california fa's, so i am sure the stuff i post no one really pay's much attention to it any way, so i think your secret climbing spot is safe from the masses, happy climbing mike a.

Matt,
Funny how the Balls did not make it in the new guidebook but lost eagle did. I agree with Matt, both places should be kept a secret especially lost eagle. That place can't handle high traffic.

Done a couple of routes on Nightwatch. Good stuff!

Hey Mike, I keep running into Mike Hernandez and Campagna at CRSP on the weekends. I thought Mike was you when we introduced each other.

Cheers!

Yeah, Mike, he mentioned it but I didn't bug him for details. Yet.

The parking lot was full at CRSP at 9AM last weekend! Unbelievable. We think it may have to do with the new Falcon guide.

If it bugs you guys that the Internet has discovered The Balls - I know a couple of locals over in Arnold Meadow who could blow a couple of bridges and close off the whole Upper Sierra Vista Loop to intruders.

How about I do this - I'll be going up to my cabin in the area in a few weeks and since I have Forest Service Winter Gate keys (perks of owning property in the woods) - I'll just lock the road gates behind me!

Then the Balls will be MINE...ALL MINE...HAHAHAHAHAA!
