Really glad to hear Dave and Holly are doing well. Last saw Dave at Walt's memorial and I couldn't believe the size of that big truck he was motoring around in. Cracked me up.

Is this when Dave jumped into your aiders?

Same year as the rescue. The ground up - no hangdogging ethic is still firmly entrenched in "The Trench". A headlock applied by Blue Rappin Rhondo in the Camp 4 parking lot would soon change Daves ethical considerations and the rest would be history. Attempting a ground up lead of the Stigma/Renegade 5.13d...

A bump and a

Hey Bacher post up the Chappy photos of your proud send of the Nabisco Wall. A momentous occasion in the free climbing history of Yosemite to say the least. Besides, it will make the Iron Monkey look that much more "Snail Eye" haha.
Now post it funky brother!

I just love these stories and pictures. Even when it displays so dramatically my own limits and weakness. It's one thing to have skill like so many humans do. It's a whole nother thing to risk you life on that skill. To somehow KNOW you can do it and that you WILL do it or life ends. Confidence to the max.

I'll never do any of that but many possibilities to "step up", are still there. Perhaps one day, I'll get Karl or somebody to let me jug up their rope on a big wall.

Just curious, could two 5.8 to 5.9 climbers and a rope gun get up a big wall, maybe like Washington Column? (I know, for many of you, it's not)

They do it every year, without a rope gun. When are you going?

Good observation Ray. And, I think that on the day that Chappy took that photo, that dude was the greatest pure rock climber on Planet Earth. Harumph!

What a great story. Buggs has one about Dave going past him on the East Buttress of Middle or something. Thanks for the Tale!
