They'll let anybody on the Tower! Hey Jaybro, had the pleasure of climbing alongside FS a couple times...I love his one hand belay technique, carefully coveting a cig in the other!

Summit note: My partner and I did (Wiessner 5.7). Fritz Wiessner did the FA in '37 I believe with a hemp rope and shoes, hip belay, and placed only one piece: a piton at the end of the first pitch (100 + ft. or so). I only had one #5 cam and didn't feel comfy walking it up, so chose Pseudo-Weissner (5.8) as an alternative since it took all kinds of gear. I gained alot of respect for him that day. Anyway, fun climb, nostalgic and is a nice alternative if "Durrance" has a waiting line.

Climbers: Gabe(?), Bryce Mithchell, Dick Lugar, Tim Henke

What a positive, good times, inciteful troll, that gordon guy is!

Nice, all! got a video coming after class tonight.

Roy-medial epicondylitis? (or complications after too few gloves iceclimbing @ Lee Vining? kidding)

Lugar, know what you mean, but I'll still put the Colonel on the least likely to drop someone list; he's saved my life! ... now second hand smoke... he does provide me dead mammal free comestibles when I visit, however. In your photo which one are you?

Jaybro...I'm the best lookin' one, with the tennis elbow! BTW...I was at the Voo over Labor Day, off the couch, got spanked leading a 5.7- handcrack...very humbling indeed. I may have to train for the next year's Bugaloo fest, sounds fun!

At the time Jay,
When dinosaurs roamed the earth, or so it seemed, and 5.11 was still cotton candy, it was lateral epicondylitis.

Now it's medial, radial, lateral, and cerebral, with chronic muscle fatigue thrown in as a topper!
(Never got over the cold hands either; now it's cold hands, feet, crotch, nose, all require mucho insulation...)

Jeebus, my p#ssy hurts.
ah!...hahahaha.
