SWEEEET!! Look when I popped in.

I'll be back to read this after I've worked on feeding my starving son.

Thanks for posting this up Jay. Even though I've heard the tale before. We'll see who's mind is fading faster, you or JoJo!!

Wonderful Jay!! Incredible route, and a well written tale.
We definitely need more stuff like this around here.
You even gave a tip-o-the hat to the Brits. That's class!!

Wonderful pictures too. Gives me a better feel for the thing.
No wonder I stuck to the big stones without so much frozen water on them.

Did Keith get the number one out? Did you keep that pin as a souvenir?

Did the Brits go on to do other big things after that trip, in the AK range or elsewhere?

Hey Jay,

Who's who in your previous pics?
Do you have any more?

I remember when you guys did that thing. Keith couldn't stop talking about it. Whenever we came across a strange climbing situation, he would have something to compare it to from the Rooster Comb!

He leaned on me a lot to go into the range with you guys back then. He finally gave up!!

Beautiful Mountains. The feeling of picking a line up one of those would give me stomach the willies. Finding your Food stash, Was COOL!!!!!

Always great to have Roy chime in.

Thanks Tarman.

It's great to have Jay here, even though it's mostly a ROCK climbers site.

We NEED to have all climbers, ANY kind of climbers here.
Especially guys like Jay Kerr.
Thanks for joining the campfire Jay.

whew! what a fine telling of a fantastic tale! caught a friend's slideshow of the Ruth Gorge last fall and couldn't believe how amazing that place looks. hoping to get there one of these days (though for something probably a lot more moderate than your climb!)

Just the thing to read, on a hot day in a hot week in Vancouver. Nothing like a look at snow to cool one down a bit!
