Holly and I climbed this route since the bump. It's not the greatest, but it's not bad either. Holly didn't exactly enjoy leading the frogs' eggs pitch below the arch.

The corner was no hell, really. It wasn't as nice as I might have hoped. Oh well.

Here's Holly cleaning into the base of the corner:











This little guy was helping us haul:














Holly leads the corner:













We had the fly on at the Truckstop bivi ledge:











The clouds swirl below Holly at the Truckstop:









We had grand plans of climbing Horseplay to Thanksgiving, rapping back to the Truckstop, and finishing via Horse Chute - thus completing all pitches of two El Cap routes in only a single El Cap ascent - but we ran out of time due to hauling my customary huge loads up the lower angle rock below.

We always have time to make coffee, though:



Hey Ivo - if you're watching, can I get my free pair of 5.10 shoes for this photo?? I should have sent it to you years ago, sheesh.







And we always have time to enjoy our coffee, too!




Cheers!
Pete
