Great stuff. Thanks.

If its kosher I might post up some from when Bill Price and I did it in 1978. The pics are super, I'd forgotten about the Roundtable!

I had never climbed with Bill. We had met of course, but Vern had to leave the Valley (super rainy spring) so there I was standing out side the MRB and I just put it out there to all hangers, "Anybody want to climb Excaliber?" He instantly said yes - and I think we went up the next day to check the loads that were below the rurp pitch. They had weather (a month?) We needed to see if the gorp was moldy etc.

We had a fantastic time up there. Really my most adventurous rt as it was the second rt up the Captain for both of us. Perfect weather. Bill was a great partner, steady, fun and always relaxed.

I have a bunch more photos and have been wanting to scan them. I'll work on it.

mmmmmm, yummy, that hammock bivvy looks soooo comfy!!!
Great pictures!

Glad I didn't have to deal with all the bongs and blocks too.
I "jugged" that pitch with three big cams......

My P.O. partner, Bob Williams, loved Bill Price.
I never got to climb with Bill.
What's he up to??

Bump for bandanas, ovals and bravado.

Excalibur should be getting way more traffic than it is. The couple of wide cracks thin out the suitors, but I wonder how many know what good thin crack and hooking pitches are on the route. A Charlie Porter masterpiece with varied climbing, a great line and position, great bivies.

Cool stuff FuzzDaddy!

On my monitor the pic of Bill was too dark to see his face.... here is lighter version, if you approve.
