e.c. you crack me up! I'm reduced to giggling right now...
I still have some little notes you sent me, a hand drawn topo and good advice on how to get there.

"I recommend to start walking at no later than 6am to beat the riff-raff. Plan on 45min, uh, since you haven't done it yet, an hour to approach"

That worked out just right...

On the second pitch your advice...

'Passing the roof... Pro in the corner... Climb the wall on the left. Search for two small breast-like knobs. Belay in cave. "That's all I've got to say about that."'

I missed the breasts and ended up doing some weird 5.10 moves on what would have been 5.8, Steve found them and floated up.

You ended the email with:

Sorry if I've given you too much Beta...

It was a great adventure and a great climb. A favorite of mine...

Who gets the girl?

I'm sorry, not PC.

Which guy did you choose?

Seriously, can you see the two rapids on the Kern in that summit shot?

Of course you can because I just told you.

I remember someone thanking me some years later for the topo that I drew for him of WPOD on a napkin at the Pondo. LOL...he actually used it on the route!

Neat report & pics--especially the
mountain mahogany and it's seeds--those guys are
driven into the ground with a corkscrew action
by that curly tail. . .

Nice post.

Reminds me that I still have to go back and bag that. I was there some fifteen years ago, but we reached the base (after 1+ hour of bushwhacking) just as another party was starting. The leader was kind enough to informs us that he was taking a beginner along and they wouldn't be moving fast. Sadly, we really had no choice but to wander off and find something else. :(

One of these days...

Nice Jude. Great pix. Coincidentally, Peggy joined our group for some campfires, craggin' at Murphy Creek (party of 8) and a trip to the Mobil last week.
