Nice job on the wide
.
Thanks briham.
You would probably like this route with all your chimney experience and familiarity with the crud.
I've only done one other as wide as this (Peyote Pillar) and it was only about one third the length.

F4?

Well the place will never be the same without a white Trooper parked there.

U there tomorrow?

Agreed.

Nope. We tend to avoid weekends.
Forecast is 96 for tomorrow, 93 for Monday - then supposedly cooling down into the 80's for a few days.
Tuesday or Wednesday might be a possibility.
Got a bike rack set up now - so we could think about going east side too.

There's a Pinns Climbing Community FB page too but I don't recognize any of the member names (weird).

That's a little rude to say you don't recognize me and the other knuckleheads on mudcrud FB.

This climb was a HUGE coup for me.


Excellent, excellent that you finally got that one done. I know it was bugging you for years. Congrats.

And the whole wall now rebolted too? Maybe Pinnacles season continues after all?

There's another FB Page for Pinns called Pinnacles National Park Climbing Community.  I just looked over the member names and I know about 5 of them.

I forgot about the mudcrud Pinnacles page - so there are actually 3 FB Pinnacles pages.
The Pinnacles Climbing Community page is probably one you haven't seen.
Bruce, Belizzi, Thornburg and Dan Gearhart (really nice volunteer you might not know - doesn't climb) are on there.
You can't see who the members are without joining so I did (reluctantly). I have yet to post on there.

Maybe we should start another FB page and just use it to gossip about the mud n crudders that aren't on FB  :lol: :devildevil:

Wow. Two accolades in one day from the GM. Hope my head doesn't swell too big for my helmet  :lol: :ihih: :arf:

I still think we need a dangling carrot icon/emoji (clink needs a dangling tomato) - besides F4 and I like carrots!

I forgot to mention that I ate chicken the night before climbing Flimsy Flume.

I told Kat maybe I should have had bear or lion - anything by chicken...

I just invited a bunch of folks to join the mud crud FB group.

There can be only ONE!

Invite your friends.

Car campers.  They should put up some tent cabins there.  No revenue to be made from picnicking.

The girl was making breakfast in the parking lot in the back of their van and the guy was still in the tent (sleeping presumably).
We let her know that they were citation bait and that we had seen a ranger the previous day (the day I led Flimsy Flume).
They cleared the site rapidly and gratefully.

They should restore 10 or so tent/walk-in sites on the west side (where it used to be).

F4?

It was early - they would have had hours to vacate before any possibility of a bust.

Sadly the ranger we saw Wednesday was the only NPS presence we have seen on the west side in eight visits.
