Jeez Errett, I didn't know there were so many routes there. Some of the names were unfamiliar. Did we do those? Nice to see the photos.

I went out there this past fall to get a few quards of Lodge Pole. I need to check it out on of these summers. I love the Paradise Forks, the overlook in AZ. I need to get back there too

Golly Ken -- there's a lot more routes than that out there. I don't have (or just can't find) photos of all of them. Aside from you, I did routes with Slate, Cole, Feldman and others. "Slate" -- now there's a name for a rock climber! Like my other old buddies, Joe Granite, Neil Gniess and Gunter Schist.

Door into summer looks sweet. I can't wait to get back up there. We shall see when I can. It's not all that great of a spot to bring the kid. The climbs are long and for real and the base isn't sandy and flat like we always dream about.

I can explore with the kid okay. Can't wait for spring.

This is one of my favorite threads by the way, along with the climbing in the panamints, and the Karma and Southern Belle threads.

hi hooblie! yes those Dexter lines frequently involved changing corners and a wildly different crack size and rock quality every 10 feet. Plus doing FA's there almost always involved taking dirt showers as you wiped off sand from the ledge above you. As to why I didn't drag you there -- we were too busy searching for our roots down past Glen Aulin.

jb,
there was maybe a boreal add back in the 80's which featured you solo on some of that action?

I remember that ad. I had a couple pairs of those aces, my favorite shoes ever.

Dexter Canyon was a great find. Some of the routes like door into summer and yosemite sam would be classics anywhere
