I like this thread.



Mt Lemmon, mid 80's. Check out all that hair on Mr. Grossman. Question of Balance maybe?

One fine spring I was leading Waterslip Down, barely visible in Jefe's picture if you know where to look. I grabbed a biner with three TCUs on it and plugged one in. I gave it a tug and it pulled right out.

I wasn't expecting that and the yanking motion made me whip right off. Making matters worse I dropped the TCUs, which landed in the pond and sank to the bottom.

Here is a picture from above lifted from Mountain Project (i'll remove if anyone cares).

I finished the route and then rapped back down. I could see the TCUs- luckily they had a pink sling. I could also see from the melting snow that the water was about 34 degrees. Nevertheless it had to be done. I stripped down nekid and made the free dive for the cams. Burr!!!111.

Looks like the weather is going to be good in the Stronghold the first week in March. Keep an eye out for a guy with grey hair and a 20 year old white Sportsmobile.

Dougald's Right at The Overlook.

The Overlook is hands-down my favorite place to climb with the wife. Tons of moderate trad climbs.

"on site at night!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
+1, I was there

Waterslip Down, one my favorite routes at the forks for some odd reason.

Overlook, always has had a special place in my climbing heart.
Although the last few trips, I've found the old moderates to not be quite so moderate. Guess it's a lot about what you're used to being on.

Some Overlook stuff:
Chicken Wings - an obscure line, now in the no climbing zone.

Some more memory lane tripping
(Credit to Larry Coats, Jim Haisley, Scott Baxter, Paul Davidson for the images. It's not clear who took what. I know some are mine. But most of the older images that look good are due to Larry's tireless editting skills. No faded, dusty images for that lad! The rest of us are too lazy to work that hard.)

I cannot believe how many hours I wasted in this place.
