Yes, Adrift is the name of Steve's route.

I had a line picked out in the old days, not sure if it's yet been done, but never got to it, and likely never will (though I do hope to revisit some of the El Cap classics before I truly retire my haul bags of big wall fun). It would have been a link up with around 8 new ptiches, the most significant of which were the lower (then unclimbed) pitches of the Black Dihedral leading up to the NA wall pitches, then of course out through the Cyclops roof.

Have those lower pitches of the Black Dihedral become part of another route?

When looking at the whole wall, to me it was really one of the major lines--a continuous diagonal line up the SE face.

Klaus, I noticed quite a few errors too==perhaps a job for the master of detail Clint Cummins to help with?

GoodGod. . . Dean Miller?

Where in the SamHill is he, these days?

He lives in Carson City these days and doing really well. I just hung out with him at my house a few weeks ago.

He also lurks here, so maybe he will chime in.
