Awesome adventure, and extra points for the witty and stylish write-up!

Can I keep you in the list of potential partners if I get so desperate for acknowledgment that I try for ANAM?

Just as I'm losing hope in Supertopo, lately swamped by soapboxers who hate, along comes
another fine climbing tale. Well illustrated too, that was a fun read.

This is very good.
Glad you're here humorously to tell us about it.

and when read with this TR:

"The Idiot's girlfriend's Guide to Descending Lone Pine Peak"

It is excellent.

Thank you both.

Now I understand why you didn't want to tell me in person. Can't wait for the musical.

Drc,
Glad to hear you are ok. I knew you were up to some kind of sufferfest. I love the pictures. Let me know if you just want to do some climbing close to the car. Does anyone have a picture of the correct descent?

Awesome report, thanks. I had my own epic descent on Lone Pine a long time back in different circumstances: 105 degree July heat. It involved dehydration, blind rappels, general disorientation and eventual wandering onto the valley floor, a day or two late and miles from the car. All good, when you live to tell, eh?

I know we all have different ideas of what the purpose of ST is, and that's as it should be. But I find it a little odd that a thread as great as this one can't stay on page one for 24 hours. I'm bumping yosgun's "tr" too--a sweet pairing.

Glad you're ok. Hopefully nobody will follow your instructions, though. :-) Thanks for the great writeup!

The views of a wintertime bivi on LPP are awesome due to the low sun angle.
I've walked this route. Water may be had on the summit plateau above the tree line in the grassy clumps.
The sand/gravel line is best for going down if you can find the
ledge to cross over to it.

So dissimilar and yet so much climbing spirit, between the 2 Lone Pine TRs and Southern Belle
on ST's front page today.
