Great find and bump! Just in time for wall season in the Valley!!!

Wow, Kris, what did you do for an encore up there?

Proud effort all around.

Lambone, i am happy to see that we have no hard feelings over this.
yeah, some beers at the bridge sound like they are in order... my contract with the d.o.d. is ending here in a hand full of months, probably right around the time you will be back at the game as well. so expect to see me around.

Mimi, as far as encores, couldnt really say i have spent to much time in the valley since then... i have always been more of a sand stone kind of guy.

I won't read the above story until I see photos.

Sure hope he read it, cause it's a doosie.

Thank you,

Bringing back the bizzness!

What a read.......This TR is at the top of the list.


And only 14 posts.....WTF?

Very nice to see that.

Clearly a guy who thinks for himself but listens, too. One of the best how-to-get-it-done reports I've seen and really says everything it needs to.

A small splash is supposed to be what you want after a good dive.

It's been 20 yrs. but I remember getting to the Illusion Chain flake as more of a tension traverse assisted by a couple of marginal hooks rather than your typical 'stand in aiders on hook'. They were marginal at best since I remember popping off and swinging into my belayer. Having said that, I don't remember that many hooks moves on the PO being on really big edges. If one of those tiny flakes blew I don't imagine their would be much else tomwork with.
