Approach beta? I thought the damn thing had become so poular the NPS paved the approach to prevent erosion.

Christ, J-Do, you used to be such a nice boy. Plus to hell with paving; let's go trench the sucker. The approach AND the effing climb. Get that dumb crux out to about a nice S-chimney. Stuff like this out there in the wild is too good for mortals and it IS about time to cut down another Bristlecone in order to count the rings and "it can't be that old". Any parallel here?

Nice TR about the seldom done Basketcase. Some people said they never heard of the climb....here is a little history.
