Pine Line, that was my first Yosemite lead back in 2003.  Sean Leary (Stanley, the one who died wing suite Jumping and made a Nose speed climb record once with Dean Potter) took me there.  I got tired after the crux move, and asked him, "can I hang and take a rest?"
"Not on you first lead" he replied.  So I climbed on.  He was a great climber and very nice person too.  I can't help to think of him every time when some one mention Pine Line.

"Not on you first lead" he replied.  So I climbed on.

I had a similar experience on Pine Line during a Dolt Tower run on the Nose. My buddy and I were climbing to Dolt to try and get familiar with the route for a NIAD attempt (which never successfully happened...).  I was climbing Pine Line and was about to pull on gear, since the purpose of the day was to go fast, not free climb. And he said, "dude it's 5.7, just climb it!!" So I did.

Does anyone mind if I delete the last 15 posts?

I received some complaints sent to the administrator about Tokyo drift and some grumbling about the Valley on a MUD thread.  Mad Max

Getting the train back on the track, Craig and I ventured out to The Mockingbirds yesterday and climbed Jean Louise and Boo Radley. Approach the same as you would for Scout Peak Regular Route and then walk downhill, avoiding a few bits of PO.
Nice staging spot and good rock on the formation. Routes stay shady. Routes were dry with that spongy gray lichen on the rock - reminded me of Dirty Bird Crack at The Frog.

Fun lines with some interesting natural features. Additional natural features at the summit of Boo Radley that are belay quality if you choose not to reverse to the bolted anchor to belay. Spoiler alert - Boo has a surprise at the top of the 5th class section. Rappel is 40 feet, so a 100 foot rope is all you need. I love using half a 60m. That is my ideal rope.

Thick green moss elsewhere is still quite wet but most else has dried considerably. Ticks are out in full force since the rain.

Cool temps starting tomorrow with a slight chance of rain tonight and overcast will obviously hinder further drying.
Looks like more rain in the forecast for next week - Boo!  

Party at beanos tonight  Playing Guitar Blahblah Crazy Arf

I didn't see anything worth posting either  Laugh Out Loud Ciappa

everyone is getting soft.

I think that is a separate issue - maybe an Old Man thread?

I can contribute to that thread. I have nap pictures.

Saw a guy with an orange helmet rope soloing Full Circle yesterday.
I watched him finish and then rap a single line all the way down to clean.
He must have had an 80m rope 90+80+70 = 240
Not sure what he did after that. We didn't stick around that long.
