Joe, just saw this:

//Cool Erik - will do.
Thanks for the great shot emac. Awesome again to meet you guys and thanks again for sharing the raps with us :)
"Looks like a great trip, can anyone help me out here, I am flying into Utah in October, To cover the areas in this trip what are the best guidebooks to look for, Can't wait it just looks fantastic, not much desert in Ireland"
Of course you've got to get SuperTopo Southwest Desert Towers Select - it's a great place to start your adventure. After you run through all those, I really like Selected Climbs in the Desert Southwest by Cameron Burns (of course Cam might have something to say about that :) Then of course Eric Bjornstad's series of desert guides is the ultimate resource - Rock Climbs in the National Parks and the original Desert Rock (out of print) are great for these areas.//

Yeah, I might. Get the other books, not mine. Too many mistakes!

Very very excellent TR.

Well worth a trip to the front page for our now departed amigo.

Thanks for the ride Joe, make sure the anchors are good on the other side.

“He was a nice guy, a good climber. He was a friend to a lot of people,” said Eric Simonson, co-director of International Mountain Guides.

This was SUCH a bummer to read today. Joe posted some of the best TRs on the Taco, and seemed like such a cool guy.

Vaya con dios, amazing one.

As a tribute to Joe, we should continue to bump this amazing TR with desert photos as well.

Still one of my faves, because it was a great evening with Lepton in one of my favorite places.
New Mexico Desert.
