Guido, of course, is correct. That is a photo of Dennis Hennek, not me. I was never that young.

Part of the flake in the photo was gone by the early 70s. We used to call that particular series of moves "crowed pleaser traverse." It ended up on the nob below the infamous "rock #2 overhang." The traverse looked great but really wasn't very difficult 5.8 perhaps before the flake began to go and the ground below eroded a bit. I'm sure it's much more difficult now. I remember as holds were pulled off by 76 or so it seemed much more difficult.

Pual Rohel..... I believe you are correct,The flake made the traverse 5.8....that was the last time I was able to do it.

Yesterday, 12/22/09 was cold and clear. The point, as usual, had some out of state visitors. If anybody Knows "Kieth" from Boulder,driving a outback, loaded with gear.....he says hi to all back in snowy Colorado, his next stop is "The Tree".

Anyway, a two year quest by the Topos own "matty" ended yesterday. Matt was able to finely send "Yabos Mantle" on rock one.

So we had something to celebrate.... and we broke out the frozen beers at sunset. (like we needed a reason)

late.

Here is demeets matching on the mantle, where the real business starts. Jeff Johnson says he knows of at least 17 variations to this problem. He is the only person I know that has down climbed it, though I've seen Aaron come close. The way I did it is knott the usual way, but then again I am knott a usual person. Next I will have to try Yabo arete, and I think there may be a yabo dyno up top to complete the trifecta. I'm coming home tomorrow boys. See ya tuesday

Extra trippy sunset tonight.

Can't beat 70 degree weather, good friends and good climbing.

The "Kat" is better after climbing.....IMHO.

Art of Climbing had a great selection of reading material - I seem to remember getting my first pair of Fire Cats from there too.

Sad that (besides Nomad Ventures) all of the specialty shops have gone away, they were great places to just hang out.
