Holy Schmoly. Went out and climbed Captain Obvious on Gray Eagle this past Friday. What a route! Did some trail maintenance on the way in and had a stellar day up high. What a summit. Replaced some tat on the raps and made it back to tacos and salsa in Northfork before the sun went down.

Viva La Shuteye!

Awesome micro! Captain Wing Feather is such a good route. Did you do another Fresno to Fresno epic day??? You look tired. I bet you slept well that night?? Any chance you scoped the base of Gray to the far right, much snow?? I love Gray. Thanks!

Ufff, what a cool place. I couldn't resist sharing a snapshot from the weekend; I hope no one minds. Wonderful 4th of July!

Mike. I think your shot of the pools wasn't needed. The one above yours was just fine. (I kid.)

Here's a couple recent shots to keep the old So Yo thread kickin.
Adam and I back on The Wing Feather/Captain Obvious. My second time up it in two months. Sooooo gooood. Just couldn't stay away.

Adam at the crux, the thin step off the belay on pitch 3. 10 degree camera tilt not intended....it's a GoPro and kinda fishy eyed.

Can anyone let me know how the smoke is up on the ridge? It's pretty bad on the Fresno County side of the river. Thanks.

Lightening strikes have started a number of fires in the Sierra Nevada. It was smokey over a wide area, including where we were at Courtright yesterday.

It is very smokey in the mornings with the afternoon breeze blowing the smoke back out to the east. I am sure Mammoth Mtn is not happy with their air quality either!

Thanks for the information, too bad there wasn't a way to breathe eastside air in the morning and west side air in the afternoon.

morning, yes the road is getting tuff to drive up on the road even in my 4x4, back in the day i could get there in my dodge caravan to the gate at friend rock camp site, i was there 2 weekends ago and saw no one there, but it was super smokey on sat, so i think the smoke scraed every one away on labor day weekend, i think this weekend is going to be a perfect week, so go!!! i am going tonight :-) happy climbing mike a.
