figure i might as well try to get some help while supertaco is still alive.

so, i am working on a new route on the west face of el cap. so far i have two pitches in, but with the weather and job constraints, it has been going slow, and we(my wife and i) could use some talented help.

the first half of the route looks to be almost all aid, with some cool, thin heading in between blank spots. there is definitlly some drilling to do on this climb. but the upper half looks like a lot of free climbing, so i am looking for a great aid climber, and a great free climber, or somebody who can do both. it would be great if i could have a pair of climbers that could push the route without me midweek. ultimately, i would like to take the 3rd week of june to complete it, but i feel behind schedule for that timeline.

i am willing to teach, mentor, and nurture to those willing to try, but noobs need not apply, unless they just want a piece of the action by belaying.

i have had great success in recruiting here for el cap, and i am so sorry to see this forum ending.

applicants can email me at blondeshipoopi@yahoo.com

Mucci, bosque, or another bay area gun would be extremely welcome.

take care, steve schneider

I'd be honored to participate if asked, Steve. But I've got neither the time nor proximity at this point. But, wow, sounds like quite the project!

ALL the best to you, my friend!

Looks like fun, Steve. Too bad I'm getting too feeble for this kind of thing.
Josh Mucci is living in San Diego now.
Steve Bosque and Kevin DeWeese have been active in doing new aid routes in the Valley - you can find them on facebook (and Kevin is on mountainproject too).

Have fun!

Indeed, Steve. Thank you!

I wish, I wish. But I'm looking forward to what I'm sure will be a great TR.

Be safe, and godspeed!

No dice, man, that's my niche; with all the overpacking and bails I know that trail better than anyone. Anyway, good luck, maybe see you around there.

There's no new route on that thing.

It will be full circle.

The route will be named "Full Circle"

Hi Steve,
Got your phone message back around Xmas but did not respond. Please understand it was nothing personal and I appreciate your reaching out. Only excuse is I haven’t felt like being too social in person or on the phone since losing our son last fall. Still wouldn’t mind reconnecting again after all the years, I’ve still got your number. Good luck on your new route.

Be well, and cheers,
-Tim
