The Flying Monkeys are dying. Half Dome is falling apart. And now this goofy ass trip report. So weird. I don't get it.

We teenage Pinnacles climbers were incredulous when we broke our first hold in Yosemite on Peruvian Flake. Granite doesn't break. Our perspective of potential danger was quite a ways off from reality.

Al,
Yeah - a free alternative to the new bolt ladder has not been done yet, as far as I know.
Apparently there are cracks in the freshly broken area right of the bolt
ladder, but it could be hazardous to climb there until it's been tested for loose blocks.

All sounds a bit hasty. Not the sharpest"tools" going up so early after you rockfall
