A classic account of the first (and maybe only) ascent of a desert mesa with input from all members of the ascent team. What could be better?
A bonus is that this old thread still has all of the photos which is rare for threads of this vintage.

Such cool stuff! So are there no pics of the "room" or the "window"?

Survival,

I've been on the lookout for quality old threads to add to nah000's collection, you should take a look over there as I've dug up quite a few nuggets.

Quite a waste of time,
I think I will go see if there is any thing to read about over there
in my region the great climbevrs are all telling each other to smoke cigars and wear deet because there are bugs that bite, where they top rope all day.

Yeah the Taco stand has no interesting climbing stuff at all, sheesh.

That's for sure. But the symbol I used to compare you to RyanD was NOT an equals sign.

Rereading this thread has brought back some memories of that trip, my first out there to climb...and we were chatting about it at the gym last night.

One kinda' funny part was my epic drive. As Todd related, he (almost a stranger) just called me up out of the blue and insisted that I come out. I had nothing going on job wise or family wise and basically hung up the phone and packed and left.

I had just barely enough money to make it there and back with gas and food and the clutch and brakes on my van were just barely working. I looked at a map and drew a straight line from Newport Beach, CA to Lukachukai and started driving. It never occurred to me to take the interstates. This route was almost all secondary 2 lane roads and even took me through Jerome, AZ. It added several hours to the overall trip.

I remember the white knuckle drive down the steep windy road through Jerome because I had to pump the brakes to get any response, there was a slow master cylinder fluid leak. I added fluid repeatedly on the drive.

Somewhere along the way the clutch gave out and I had to double clutch to make shifts. Starting out was tricky.

I finally pulled into a convenience store in Lukachukai in a raging snow storm to fuel up. There was the most beautiful young girl (Navajo) I had ever seen working in the store. I felt like I was in a dream.

The next morning Washoe had his brief battle with Mr. X we repacked Todd's Toyota and headed for Moab.

The part Todd mentioned regarding the case of Old English wasn't true. I had more appropriate and organic libations.

Here is Mr. Gordon at the Spider Rock overlook.
