Awesome photos! That's a dream route of mine, I'm gonna have to sack up one of these years. How cool to have done it with Walt. Only met him once in early 99, what a great guy. Wish I could have gotten to know him better.

bump for sick shit.

Just did the last 3 pitches of this route after connecting in from Lost in America.  The 3rd to last pitch was a mega grunt, total pain in the ass...big roof to reach over, steep corner, then a strange chimney size flake you climb behind.  the part you climb is overhanging at a 45degree in a 1.5' wide chimney thing.. its wierd...

Thanks for the wayback pix, thanks for the bumps.

Nobody around, gotta love it.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Old pics, are priceless.. as in "valuable snippets of history". It's great to see them digitized as I wish I had done to so many of mine that are now faded to the point of being unrecognizable. Unfortunately, most of my negatives and positives were destroyed in a basement flood.

Thanks for posting these awesome photos!
