I saw a picture of that but it wasn't in the Avy report.

if you go to time for tuckerman, they have a write up on it.  Seems a somebody took a tumble and smacked a boulder loosing consciousness for about 20 minutes.  They evac'd him as they were concerned about head trauma but he is rumored to be ok and already discharged from the hospital.

started off pretty strong and then crapped out much like the conditions unfortunately.  How was yours?  Heard you got Dracula a couple weeks ago?

It was a good season considering(about 20-25 days out).  I guess you and JB were about an hour ahead of me, in Shoestring, one day.  I'm pretty stoked for rock season.  Hopefully I'll see you out there.

I got out about 8 times.  Looked to be a good season, I was getting out pretty much everyone weekend and then stuff came up and weather sucked.  I was hoping to get out way way more.  Oh well.  Hopefully next year will be better.  I heard that you were behind us on shoestring.  Hoping for a good rock season!  I'm sure I'll see you out there.

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

I was hoping to hit 25, but it looks like there is a better chance of the Auto Road being open by Easter. ;D
