Was not sure I would go.  Came down with a bug. Last night was miserable.  Today is much better.

Like always Mr. Mud will answer all questions from the trail so if you need advice or just want to get hooted and hollered at stop by.  It's kind of like that eight ball you shake up but better!!!

 Cool! I went out yesterday with the Cooks and Brad(who also has a bug). We went antiquing,(def-"we would often go antiquing in search of furnishings"), at Mud's old stomping grounds above Tourist Trap. A mention of a ring piton that was sighted by Mucci led to the finding of two ancient routes and a total of four ring pitons. No bolts but a full rack made the loose sections negotiable. Pics of the pins should get posted. Most of Mud's "gear routes" looked from mildly, to get a white van parked in the upper parking lot NOW, insane.

 I would like to get an account of these individual route first ascents by Mud.

 Later on a new, overlooked pinnacle, I opened my own brand of chocolate flavored antibiotics but only succeeded in making us all nearly barf. KC did a nice job of self arrest when a foot blew out, hopefully with minimal scarring.

You forgot to mention that I am clearly not as adept as my partners at placing my butt cheeks in lieu of foot holds to make progress on supposed awkward butt easy climbs. I made the big mistake of climbing with my hands and feet - thinking with my reptilian BB-size birdbrain rather than my derriere. In hindsight I would recommend a name change to 5.4 My A$$. 5.4 on the YBS, 5.8 on the YDS.

Cold enough today that the leader was wearing a jacket in the sun while drilling.

Cold enough that Mr Mud's voice was completely frozen and it took a couple of days to thaw a little bit. It must have been a one sided conversation from Noal on their drive back after dark.

Still spewing green shit. Vicki thinks that I'm improving (whereas I think that she needs no improvement, but I digress...).
