I am pleased to add Ed Cooper to the roster to join Glen Denny in revisiting their great adventure on the Dihedral Wall in 1962.

In 1978, Bev Johnson was the first woman to solo El Cap by climbing the Dihedral Wall, don't forget.

It's GREAT to see this thread. I'll be adding the FA of an obscure, but beautiful, Grade 5 that Life Is A Bivouac and I did to the 2 FA's on Sentinel that Steve asked me to highlight.

A dangling conversation with everyone hanging in suspense...perfect for a Big Wall program.

Anyone have contact information for Don Peterson also in Montana last I heard?
