So are you saying that classless clown is appropriate?

I detest him, voted to keep the shit show out and will again. 
What bothers me more than a little, is giving that moron the power to control a word associated with his fucking name.

 I won't bow to that way of thinking.

Do we change the (former?) "Hillary Step" on Everest to "Edmund's Way"? Change all descriptions of a "bush" to a "shrub"? A reference to a "bill", now an "amount owed", "Beak" or "what's due"?

It seems that the best name for this route may be TABOO.

 So this morning I get a decent cup of coffee and head out to see what's open for breakfast during the pandemic, in SF.

 There is a nice place for takeout on the corner of Post and Taylor, but it's not open till 8am. I walk around the corner, stop to sip my coffee and check out the various high-rise architecture above me.

 A guy walks up from Geary and asks me for money. I reply, no thank you. He says something about why he needs the money and I say that I have a large family and won't be giving him money today.

 This has happened many times in various forms and places I'm sure to everyone who ventures in public. I played music on the street a couple of times and have been given money. Sometimes I give money, share food, but most of the time I decline.

 The person that got my extra money was the server that brought us salad and tacos last night.

 The mother fucker calls me a liar. I say what the FUCK! He pulls what I think is a cell phone out of his pocket and throws it on the sidewalk and gets all bowed up and yells I know karate! I say that I spent my life tearing buildings apart with my hands and putting them back together again. He walks away backwards telling the street how tuff he is, until he disappears.

Almost as dangerous as work, but I'm on fucking vacation.

I order eggs and hash browns, find a place to sit and check out the latest posts on Mud N' Crud.

Politics change what is and is not appropriate.  I used to on occasion use the term trumpted up or that trumpts in a sentence.  I almost always search for different words and I am not alone on this.  On occasion a person or an event comes along and it is significant enough that it changes current societal norms.  This is one of them.  And it is not over, if you think it is ugly today wait until tomorrow.

Use whatever name you want, it is your route.  But, if that page in the guidebook has his name on it I will tear it out, burn it, and offer it to whatever God will take it.  Fuck him.

Also to be clear, Hilary is no Trump.  If she did half of what this guy has done she really would be in prison.  Plus she actually accomplished some good take some time out and look into what she has accomplished in regards to healthcare.

The fact remains that a group of climbers who named a route, bowed to political sensitivities and change the name of the route. This makes the naming process on this route's particular history politically influenced 
 

You guys named the route the original name without even asking me.

I think either Noal or I placed at least one bolt on the route 

I placed one bolt on that route.  Earlier that day we looked at a really weird convoluted looking line on the upper part of the chimney sweep formation.  I suggested we look at something better nearby that I had spotted when working on the Deep Groove Wall. 

We each placed a bolt called it a day and agreed to return. You guys went back with Brad and Kathy and I did not come with.  Cant remember why. Maybe I was getting my hair done or something.

Anyway, when I heard what you guys named the route I did not like it.  Mainly because it is too easy for someone to misconstrue the association with Nitwit Knob and think we are Trump supporters. Too ambiguous.  Maybe something about Tinkle on the Orangutang would've been better.

Long story short I found the route showed it to you guys and then you finished it and named it without asking me what I thought. Honestly, at the time that rubbed me the wrong way. 

Why are we re-hashing this?  I dont find it too productive and considered it water under the bridge.  I dont harbor any hard feelings and thought we had all put it in the past.  I guess not.

Clink, I hope you are having a good vacation in SF.  Having lived there for 10 years or so(6 of those at Geary and Leavenworth one block from your altercation) my advice to you is do not engage with panhandlers.  Either completely ignore them or just say no.  The guys around Union Square are seasoned pros and very aggressive and unstable.  Enjoy your vacation and dont play into their hands.

Better than living in Leavenworth.

Looks like the city is broiling.

They closed the park for fire danger until further notice.
You can hike from the campground to Bear Gulch and no further.
That makes Peaks View Pinnacle and Flake Don't Break your only choices for climbing.
The campground remains open.

The only thing left to do is a rain dance.

What we need now is a major earthquake and a super volcano mega eruption.

We need rain to put out the fires plus to get the toxic smoke and particles out of the air.  Gavin gets mad props for rescuing a condor chick from the Dolan fire over on the coast.

That fire kinda came close to his ranch. 

Took a ride on Sunday. Went down Tunitas then back up thru San Gregorio to West Alpine.  Pescadero road over Haskins appeared to be open with traffic going over.  Will have to check that out this weekend.  Could not drop down into Portola Redwoods from trailhead on Alpine.  All that stuff is closed.  They must be using Old Haul to get back and forth to what's still burning.  Something is still burning cuz it was still smoky on Alpine Road.  Took a small snooze on the slab by the phone boxes.
