Hey Holly,

Nice to see you again at the best of places - on the summit of El Cap - and to finally meet Lorna, who yesterday was wearing her Lorna Suit as shown in the photos. It's great to see you making such good use of your brand new camera. Wait'll you show the closeups you've taken of climbers on other routes - Tom Evans will have a heart attack as you start muscling in on his territory. Thanks so much for all the work it must have taken you to write this trip report, and what great writing it is, too.

I have a question for the computer geeks here, and the poor buggers on dialup. Holly used quite large photos - both in width [1024 pixels wide] and in size [200 to 300 KB images]. Do any of you have troubles looking at this trip report on your computers? I have this new laptop that has a super-wide screen, so I'm able to scroll a bit to the right to see all the photos. And with a quick internet connection, no problem to download.

The reason I ask is this - you may recall my [url=""]Tribal Rite Photo Essay,[/url] which I split into ten different posts to take pity on the poor dialup guys. I also resized my photos to around 100 to 150KB so they weren't so big. Have we now reached the point that most everybody can read a big long report on a single page like Holly's? If so, my next effort will be thus.

Congratulations, Holly Beck - [url=""]Undisputed Queen of El Capitan![/url]

Pete [and Wee-Wee]

P.S. This fabulous post of Holly's deserves to be bumped on at least a daily basis, to make sure everyone gets a chance to read it, so let's make it so, eh?

Um, gunna havta argue that Beth is the undisputed Queen of El Cap, considering the extra style points awarded for free climbing. But Holly's resume is impressive non-the-less. Way to get after it! Congrats on New Dawn and Shield!

Didn't take a single picture when I did it in 1978, and I'd forgotten what she looked like, Thanks for the great shots and TR!

Bump for a really superb photo trip report! I hope to be following her up this route come May.

Note: You will KNOTT see any shade in my photos of the Wall Of Early Morning Light when I'm leading it, unless of course it's afternoon shade.
