There ain't nothin' as good on the taco as a Tarbuster TR. Doesn't matter if it's a horribly hard objective from the past or a pleasant day out with some good vino, it's all in the style.

Nice to see you back on here livening it up...

Always good to hear from you Dave!

Check it out, a report for you on a mutual friend of ours, or more specifically, her daughter.
Helga's daughter, Claire, ripping it up in Indian Creek just last month:

If everything goes according to plan, Claire will be at CU Boulder in the fall.

 Watch this space for evidence of some real climbing action from the next generation!

Wow Roy,

Thanks for the photo. I guess it is all in the genes!

Going to Boulder for college is like a climber's dream, I imagine.

Best to you, haven't seen you on Tenaya Beach in quite a few years now..

I still think of that location as the center of the world in some way..

It just don't get any better 'n this, Tarbousier!

Obviously I'm not alone in thinking that whether you're posting a climb down Memory Lane or a hike up to present day, it's all good...and definitely worthy fodder for your admirers to graze upon.

(Besides, I can now steal your wine kinda-sewers description of that bottle you're guzzlin' and make all the Yelpers think I know something about smashed grapes. Lol!)

2018-4-28 wine notes

Goose Ridge Vineyards , G3, Columbia Valley red wine blend, 2014
14.4%
G3: three generations of winemakers.

Ruby red color.

BlackBerry, plum, black currant, tar, spice, vanilla (from the oak)
Informing grapes best guess: Cab, Merlot, Syrah?

On the palate: presents like an Italian wine. Brisk acidity, well extracted fruit, long finish.
In Washington state grapes mature at cooler temperatures, gaining acidity as opposed to sugar, thus the European continental style.

At least Roy was smart enough to use a rope for his intended. Mine almost called it off when
I refused to get it out of my pack to cross an iced over slab while descending a Cascades peak.
Hey, it wasn’t that bad, there were nubbins poking through the ice!
