great story. loved the pictures. for the hyperlinks, do regular html tags not work on this forum?

edit: guess not... what about...

move to Page 2 of the Tribal Rite photo essay

move the periods outside of [/url] tag. They're what's screwing the link up (I think).

If you want to see a concise version of this tr, check out this link:

http://www.mountainproject.com/v/big_wall_and_aid_climbing/tr__tribal_rite_se_face_of_el_cap/106076716

It's a little easier to read that the sp version, but still captures all the pics, etc.

Thanks for the great TR Pete!

Walter Rosenthal was one of my best friends. He learned the tricks of the trade from the great Charlie Porter, and was kind enough to pass a few of them on to me. Walter soloed The Dihedral Wall and The Zodiac(early seventies). Also an early ascent of Mescalito, when it was still called "The End All Wall"!

R.I.P. Wally!

b|tchin' trip report Dr Piton!! I'm a big fan of your "vertical camping" approach to big walls.

For those who don't know Piton, you might mistake this type of approach to climbing for laziness. But let me assure you, after spending three nights underground with Pete in Roppel and witnessing his meticulous nature at surveying and sketching ~700ft of new passage in what most climbers would consider wet, miserable conditions, I can testify to his hard working ethics...even if it is in the name of "fun".

You should definitely continue the photo essay saga with your other climbs.. its a great way for people like me to procrastinate the day away =)

Keep it up Pete!!

Cheers,

Jon
