Ya know, Mark. . . I could be totally full of it, too. . . (it's happened before and undoubtedly will happen again). . . but those posts are almost 2 years old and I think that's around the time Meyers hit the TacoStand, even though ever so briefly. Might be your long lost FA Old Schooler, too.

?

And. . . yeah, you betcha, I'll do what I can to keep that Ole Maji. . . . .

Proud solo Mike!

The bed sale wouldn't be complete without this product shot from the great aquatic adventure.



And while Mike White's name is passing around, here's one of his claims to fame (as a photographer).

steve, you should scan and post the first page of that interview with mg. i literally have not read it in twenty-five or thirty years, but i can still remember the first lines:

"heard about the yank who's been climbing all the hard routes?"

"all the hard routes??" i replied, british pride sputtering inside me.

"profit of doom, white wall, [etc etc]", the sacred names reeled off his toungue..."

or words to that effect. it was a really great little profile, and especially telling if you were a student of mountain magazine, ken wilson's editorial style, the 70's british fascination with california climbing, and so on. plus it "outted" mike graham as a truly great climber, quiet or no.

Bump to echo scan request, please.

Hope to be heading up on Aquarian in a few weeks, and would love to see more pics.

Here's another photo of Mike today, although he doesn't quite look like the same Honemaster from the first couple photos! [Not like me on the right, sheesh]. And that's my partner Minnesota Mark on the left, who I climbed Pacemaker with this spring.



{sigh} The bridge. Tuesday. Be there or be square. Bring beer or be queer. Summit or plummet.

That Ledge truly was and still is in many was ahead of its time.

Pete, The Princess and I will not be arriving until the 21st. So more than likely you will be on the wall by then. Dont forget your paddle for the Canoe on the Albatross. I did the Aquarian Wall several years ago and the one thing I really remember is it was Grassy in spots. I think others have written about the same experience as well. Doubt anyone has been up there this year yet so your gardening skills from Pacemaker this spring may come in handy or you could have Soren go up there and mow it down for you ahead of time :) All in all still an interesting route
