Masters of Mud -- Pinnacles / Re: WEEKEND UPDATE
« Last post by looks easy from here on Today at 08:33:45 AM »
Headed out to the Ctadel yesterday with a few friends. West Side was very quiet. We saw maybe a dozen people pass through the parking lot while we were casually loading our gear then veeery casually packing the car back up at the end of the day. One other climber came up when we were around the second anchors. I led The Flying None, we had another team on Costanoan.The Flying None was amazing, especially pitch 2. That combination of position, exposure and steepness is very rare on 5.7s, I feel like. I also luxuriated in the bolt spacing. Great work by the FA team to find it, clean it and equip it. It was fun to have the two climbs side by side, with similar anchor points, so we could jawjack back and forth. The day was warm, but that mostly just affected the hikes in amd out. The climbs were very pleasant, mostly in the shade until the last pitch or so.

On our way to camping at Lee Vining Creek for fishing last weekend, I pointed out to Johnny climbs I had done in view from hwy 120. The Great White Book, being one of my favorite memories, climbing with Bob Walton and his son and my daughter Kate, when she was in high school. Upon returning home I found a picture Bob had taken of us low on the route. As Kate said when I sent her the pic, Good times!

 We dropped in on the Young's on the way back, way too long since last visit. Came home a day early to dodge the September rain.

Clink, that was a fine day in the mountains!  Our kids climbed great! I remember belaying Jon on the book pitch and being amazed. He scampered up it like a crazed crab, never coming near the book itself, and joined me at the belay in little more than a minute.

I am half joking.  Santa Claus might be enough.

Should get there on Friday.  Plan on staying until Sunday. We will go climbing.

 My grandchildren may bite, just warning everyone.  :)

 There is a sign at the local market that says “Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy “

What is the plan for October now?

We have two camp sites.  No group site.  That means not a mega big gathering like the last M.O.M.

Last I heard from Brad he said a lot of people would like to camp.  I will leave the management of an attendance list to him. I plan onl sleeping in my vehicle so that frees up one tent.

 What is the plan for October now? I was so looking forward to a tickle contest with Mud, it looks like that ain't happening now.

 Is Brad offerring massages again in his van? Is Noal going to bellydance by the fire? Aaron and Dina doing a drum circle? Bob bringing his big south county sausage? Raccoon pit barbecue?

 Other than a semi-'ntelligent conversation with the usual, what's the plan, climbing?
