I was so caught up with those damn bees I forgot to mention flats. Lots of frikkin flats. Middle March Road has the highest puncture to vehicle ratio of any dirt road in AZ. Told you that place was crap. lol

Ruppell, if I knew it, I would never come here!

And the bees are annoying. And there is cowshit everywhere!

I want to go back to my gym. Even with all the enjoying kids, it's much safer!

I've been there a bunch Moose and have gotten one flat. I've seen a lot more though. There's a tire repair shop in Tombstone on the left just before town. Have fun and watch out for the cow sh#t.

PS: If you run out of firewood you can actually burn the very dry cow sh#t. Not recommended but it works. lol

Thanks, Ruppell!

I hiked up today to the base of Peacemaker. A party of three was finishing the first pitch around 11AM. It looks like they topped out and coming down.

A 6PM picture.

Btw, I'm sitting alone waiting for my buddies to arrive.

We are going big tomorrow!

Perhaps, MH2. There is something in "the beginners' luck". It's like the fortune favors the clueless. I experienced it myself many times. Hard to explain for a scientific mind.

Actually, cluelessness is at the very root of the scientific mind.


And too often at the crown, also.

Omg moose be careful.
Barneys get swatted down pretty hard, even at Sheepshead.
The flatís a bad omen.

What is it with car issues on our trips! Glad I saw the flat tire picture AFTER I drove my Park Ave beater down that road at 2 am! But I carry a full size spare and a Noob spare.

Steve, it is awesome.

Today we climbed a couple of routes on Muttonshead. Very good routes (can't remember the names). Excellent face climbing on perfect granit.
