Did you get down to Elevations (the climbing shop in Lone Pine) on Sunday to get your daughter a harness and shoes?? Wanted to climb with her on Sunday but found ourselves chasing other folks down. In the end, we climbed a few Brutus routes: 'Tuxedo Juntion' (had NO gear for the first 25'...scary A-Hills dirty crack!) and 'Lives Of The Cowboys' (.9+/.10a). LOTC was a line I pointed out to Bruce last year. Leave it to my dear bud to snag it 15 minutes after I walked away to recon some other potential lines!! Sneaky Brutus! And the early bird certainly got the good worm. Nice route!!
Bro jay introduced me to Em in July when I was out on a brief exile from Wy. Wonderful pics and sentiments. I am struck by the feelings and how much climbers look like climbers. RIP Brutus... who I never knew....
Thought I'd share a thank you letter, with all of the Brutus of Wyde Stonehouse Memorializers, I got from Doroethy Leonard, the granddaughter of Franklin Merrill Wolff, who with his wife, built the stonehouse (the Ashrama)in 1930-1950. Em invited Doroethy to join us at the Film Museum part of the memorial.
One of the highlights of the summer was having you all at the Ashrama. I especially enjoyed the time at the Film Museum (I am now a member). The event and the people were a delight. I have a new appreciation for rock climbing and climbers!...
Its hard to believe a year has passed since we gathered at the Stonehouse to remember Brutus. I wish I'd seen more of your faces in that time. Cheers to you all and may the next gathering of the tribe be a joyous one.
