Way to go there, man. Thanks for bringing us along.

I have to admire the style...savoring the suffering.

Yee Haw Zak. Scary rock fall!!! Thanks for the killer veggie burritos in the meadow. Next time I have you with a king cobra or two, I want to know what an "easy" "crux" is for you?! Good luck and be safe on el medio dome. I've got 4 leeper z's with your name on them.

Thanks everyone for the psych!!!!!! Good stuff up there, and yes, it is contagious! "Salad" is coming up for a solo of the Prow and I'll talk him through the logistics via radio, let's hear it for Salad!!!!!!

I hiked my first load up to Zenith today... ouch! it's pretty far but not scary like evyone says. The base of Half Dome is like a cross between a huge Roman Cathedral and standing in front of the counter at Baskin Robbins....... Woooop!

Here's a pic of Kate and Pete - it was great to be able to whooop it up with you two, but staying out of radio contact for the duration was nice.

The tunes I've got loaded up for the next journey are "Peaches" and "Miss Kitten"...... Anyone down?

Cool shot, thanks. Kate's doing her last lead, just above the C1 Beauty on Eagle's Way, above the Devil's Prow.

How many nights were you on TR? Is there water up at the base of Half Dome now?

Great TR! Thanks for posting up.

That chopped bolt on Boot Flake may have been the infamous Robbins chicken bolt! Royal thought that the Boot was a bit sketchy and drilled there even though the third ascent party chopped it and went on by. Proof positive that we all have our cloudy moments.

No shots of the rattiest bolt ladder on the Captain up high?!?

The Central Scrutinizer winds in and out of Tribal Rite so I have done some of the pitches.

Exemplary TR, Zak. Not too much spew, great pix.

Nice job on the solo. You nailed the crux*.

Nice job Zak! Great pictures. Tom and Jean got to see you with binocs a few days ago from the bridge. Holly, (from the bridge) filled them in on the sport. I am not going camping with Robert, too much stuff around here to do. See you in Aug. if not sooner.
