Thanks for the bump Mziebell.
Finn has been trying to talk me into doing some aid. Never have. If I keep looking at these killer TR's, just might happen. I could smell the granite.

Some of the finest climbing photography I've ever seen. Well done. Your composition is so much better than the typical gratuitous posed stuff. Brings back the memories...

Too many damn photos!!! This thread almost crashed my computer - it was *actually* smoking as I pulled the plug from the back of it. Now that it's cooled down and restarted, the OS won't load, and I'm certain it erased all the files on my drive and my monitor will no longer power on. I hope my car's OK. It was in the garage, after all, when I clicked the link to this thread... You'll be getting a visit from the NSA and Homeland Security soon, buddy!

Nice TR! :)

Thanks so much!! Those are great photos that really capture the true character of that climb!

Zodiac was my first wall - I did it the summer after finishing high school back in 1994. Those photos bring back so many parts of the route that I'd long since forgotten - the scary blank sections, the wonderful discovery of a #1 cam placement, the learning to use hooks, careful scrutiny of a fixed copper head (hmm... do I trust this thing?), all that great stuff!

As "edgy" as I am these days, your post made me laugh!! I guess that is the value of all these Fing "OT" posts on ST these days! Thanks

How awesome sh#t like this gets quickly relegated to the back pages is a mystery to me. Currently the top post is "Clash of Civilizations" post number 423 or so....F&$X@!!! we can read the F&$X@ news that clash sh#t with Arab and Israeli Iraqi news is all over it. You can
t take a dump without seeing it on the bathroom wall. Never see this kind of quality on the regular news and rarely even here though.....

Thanks for the bump, can't believe I missed it first go round!

Wow, great photos! They really give the "feel" of what it's like up there. Hats off to Corey!

Another bump.

What's this monkey business? Looks like an A5 move.

Thanks for posting this awesome trip report.
