The kids are still jazzed about hanging with and getting some great stories from Steve S. who was camped next to us.

that face just left of the chimney is really nice. If you lead it, have to run it out for about 40' of 5.8/9 good knobs, getting thinner at the top.

Thanks for the photos of us on Eichorn! We did Cathedral Peak earlier in the day and then did the direct west pillar of Eichorn. 10 hrs car to car. Lovely day!

Way to go Mike! Introducing the n00b is always a great thing.

You got to hang with Steve?! Sweet dizzle, I always enjoyed that a lot myself, in the waaay back machine!

Yup - Cousin/nephew Chris lives in Eugene and climbs at Smith. When he heard that Steve, this guy telling hilarious stories by the fire, made the 5th ascent of "To Bolt or Not to Be" his eyes got pretty big.

Cathedral is my favorite peak in the Sierra.

Thanks!
