more random wanderings (wonderings)

Pywiak Dome is a magical place, even if crowded

The Dike Route a totally fun. can you spot the line?
marty(r) is heading for the chains on the traditional "solo" of the first pitch...

After having fun getting up to the slabs under the headwall, we went exploring, maybe a bit suspect in our motives... but it was fun, hopefully you'll hear more later this year.

Here's Jaybro dancing around up there...

A fantastic place to go, with the objective of our desire cleaving the "brow" on the Northface

Having found no way to force ourselves on the charm of the rock expanse, we went to the store and got some Mammoth Brewing Company IPA 395 and went out to The Knobs Bouldering Area to find some solace...

Here's marty(r) warming up...

...fun to be bouldering there and feel the good spirits

If you guys need a face climbing gun to get under that thing..... Waugh might be your guy and will probably be up there soon.

Looks like a great time Ed! A bit jealous about the bouldering.

When Rob is feeling better we should all head up there.

scanned film...
my climbing camera is still an ancient relic which records images in a photo-chemical medium

I actually like it that way...

hey Russ, I should suck it up on the face climbing... at least I'll will have felt I'd earned the pictures of the bidness

The Route:

The Ride:

The Rack:

The Rogues:

Had we gotten anywhere on the road to Boa, these would have been our tactics:

I pre-registered my excuse as "the shade got in my eyes" thus securing rights to any failure due to eyesight. I think, in the end, other things were getting in our way. Soon though...

Nice pics Ed!
I guess I never have seen the dike in the dike route. There really is no mistaking the line.
