Leaving camp at 0830? What could go wrong?
And rapping off when there's an easy walkoff? :-/

Nice Moose. I must have climbed this route untold times. Never rapped it however as the descent is way cool and doesn't require a rap if you tunnel through at one point.

Good job!

Your daughter: What a great climbing partner!

Now that you know the route and the many ways to get lost (and not get lost), let's go climb this thing!

Terry, are you sure I know my way?

I climbed it before with Donini and still got lost. In a week I will most likely forget the route completely.

Remember our last few climbs? Once I started climbing 5.11, got to the first bolt and you reminded me I was not tied in? The other time I did tie in, but forgot the rack!

Dementia, fer sur!

Nice TR, thanks.

Obviously you've raised a smart one!

Did I mention it was fun?

Climbing with Little Moosie is awesome. She is very a good climber, and a person you always want to be around.

Our little adventure didn't put us in any danger. Just my usual "I am not sure which way to go". But, I always find my way, eventually.

Fun? If climbing was meant to be fun there would be Unicorns on the ledges! :-/

Reilly, would a Moose instead of a unicorn do for you?

Moose, Lovely romp with Moose 2.0. It was great to meet your family. I was a tiny bit jealous when you guys went off to climb without me but now that I see this, all is forgiven. I had fun making a fool of myself while floundering about on Sunnyside Bench with Dave Y. Hope to climb or ski with you soon.

Spider, sorry about that. Will make up to you have you skiing with me for a week. You will get sick of me for sur! Hehehe

Back to climbing. My climbing equipment improved over the years.

Three years ago I had a sling for the harness.

Are you gonna die?

Not so that you would remember it.

Reilly needs to catch up. There is a rap line now, easier and safer than the walk.

Moose,

I climbed the route twice in '65. Once with Mark Powell and once with Russ McLean. It's 2017 and I don't even know where Middle Cathedral is.
