The lizard was at the top of 7, not 6, and he was still there in May, 2001.

no lizard in 2004 ..

.. i had an inspiration to go buy an inflatable godzilla doll, and rig him up as my belayer .. and leave him attached to one of the belays .. (perhaps even inflate him using the RUN_FLAT stuff you can use on road tires) .. but i was too lazy to go through with it ..

i'm sure its been done anyways .. i think it was chris mac that did the first ascent with an inflatable Guinness .. so it would not be very original ..

Inflatable things might not be original but certainly the type of "beasty" you bring can be. Who out there had ever thought of bringing Rolphin The Dolphin up? That one is all mine. Good thing we didn't have velcro gloves - Rolphy avoided any "abuse".

Eva, dude. Eva the Party Ewe.

She still sits in her plastic bag. {sigh} We had planned to have a big sheep inflation party, and doggon if I didn't fall off and fracture me ankle on Day 1 of my Six-Week Holiday. However last Monday I got "unscrewed" - all metal has been removed from my ankle. I'm in a plaster cast [again! sheesh] til this Friday, until the incisions have healed.

As for Eva and the Ranch, I'm still waiting to see if Chad is interested in a rematch. Have you heard from him? He got a new job, I know. He seems to have disappeared. I never supposed him to be "satisfied" having climbed El Cap only once, but you never know. I hope to climb with him again. We shall see...

Ha! Reminds me of the time I climbed El Cap for the first time in 1988 via The Nose - my then-wife honestly believed that I would retire from climbing, having reached my long-sought-after goal. One post-divorce renaissance and twenty-six El Cap routes later, she couldn't have been more wrong.

Baaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!
