cheers

Hey, Mister Ask-A-Limber,

What's the best saw blade for quickly and quietly removing trees and limbs? What sleep aids do you use to overcome the retrobolts and other via ferrata-esque "improvements" you unilaterally put in?

Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Don't give nanook ideas, he's just messed up enough to take ideas like that seriously.

Cheers Mike, I feel your pain. It was a beautiful day, stunning Fall colors and light and even got to see the second free ascent of the Prophet. Must be tough where you are,wish you were here.

Brant got a porter so should be up on the Stone this evening!

Hey Erik - topo looks good.  Pitch off Ahwahnee is a bit more diagonal than shown on your topo - but I mean, how could you get lost.

Good to see you a few weeks back - WOOT!!

Hey, it's the anniversary of Skinner's death--can I have topo info? Hey, Brant is soloing, can I have topo information? Hey Brant is soloing, here's my new topo.

You don't feel anything, Erik. You're a transparent fake who pretends to work in climbers' interest in Yo. People need to know that when they support you they support drilling routes into submission and needlessly flouting regs in the face of LE. Regs like sawing trees and limbs, and using tools to sculpt permanent bivy platforms. Because you are are a wall climber (term used very loosely), your actions represent and affect a bunch of upstanding people and their interest who do not want it.

I'm exactly where I want to be right now. Imagine this, some people don't want to live in the ditch.

Update:

As of 7:30am this morning...Brant is eating breakfast on awahnee ledge. I'm eating breakfast at work sitting at my computer. My parents were right, life is not fair.

"It is cold and expected to get colder, gotta keep moving."

Proof that the vampire actually climbs during the day.

Update:

One from the top as of 7am this morning. He spent some time last night preparing a camp just in case the weather hit earlier than expected.

Leaning tower this time of year is perfect for the vampire. He will successfully avoid any direct sunlight.

Brant topped out. Probably waiting for the light to fade before he begins to decend. Or, more likely, party on top then down tomorrow.

So Brant solos Zodiac, climbs The New Dawn and then solos Wet Denim?? What? Doesn't he have a job? Is he not a productive member of American society!?!?!?!?

LOL, yep that's what I was thinking too! I suspect it's a flexible work situation coupled with an insane vampiric tendency to want to ascend Walls.

good job Brant! 

How was that roof?
