Bump of appreciation for dee ee.

One very humble and mellow cat. Ripping climber, always pushing new lines and getting stuff done. A fine pop, I'd wager a bunch. A good example for others.

PS: Margy rocks, too.

I can never remember a time when Dave Evans was not around and like Richard Harrison, another low-key Stonemaster, Dave has climbed so long he's basically done every worthwhile formation out there. I remember about 50 years ago parked up in Humber Park and drinking malt liquor with Dave . . .

I remember whenever I was in the mood to sit at the campfire till 2am at Josh all those winters ago, Dave was always the one person sitting talking till the wee hours. I haven't seen him in a while even though our paths must be crossing all the time.

Dave soloed The Column when he was 16 years old, climbed a dozen El Cap routes as a young lad, did the first ascent of Figures on a Landscape, done more desert towers than most, and , of course, climbed The Totem Pole. He married a lovely girl, has a wonderful young son, and now rides the dirt bike for kicks. He's the bull, the beast , the hawk, the ghost. (Largo;...I think that was more closer to 60 years ago with that malt liquor in Humber Park;..best check your dates.....)

in '78 or so dave and i poached that two-pitch .10a face route that goes straight up the center of the west face of the big formation on the cohen property -- you can see it from hemingway butress -- can't remember the name of it, but it was pretty good. dave was one smooth and controlled face climber, i'll tell you what. only time i ever tied into a cord with him, despite seeing him every weekend for 20 years or so.

dude's always been an inspiration to me. he's done it all, but you'd never know it -- he's got some kind of pathological aversion to spray. a quiet giant.

Yeah Bob, I think you are thinking of the route "Seventh Heaven" I'm pretty sure. That's a cool route and I remeber doing it back then as well.

Dave Houser and I put 7th Heaven up. We also added another route to the right of it called Sun Day which has probably never had a second. Too bad that wall is off limits, it had huge potential. They should have thrown that f#cker in jail for shooting at people though!

Man I misread the Thread Headİ and thought there would be some real neat stuff about Roy Rogers.

Did 7th Heaven with Troll, we got the bullhorn (no bullets) about halfway where you become visible. Funny memory, "climbers on the rock, climbers on the rock, you are punk a-holes". Or something like that.

Dave sat and drew a topo for Keeler Needle(see recent TR)for me that was spot on. I tried to do the same for Shipley a year or two later, probably wasn't half as accurate. He bagged it of course.

Dig the brain bucket on DEEE. Reminds me of the old Bell ads: "If you have an $8 head, wear an $8 helmet."
