He is amazing. Anyone else think "Headstone- Joshua Tree" at first glance?

A couple of years ago I saw a picture of the sharks fin in a climbing guide and told my wife that I wanted to get a picture of her on it like in the book.  We climb in Bishop a bit so it was right there.  What you can't see from that picture is how the sharks fin is one of the most picturesque climbs in the world.  If you look at where George is from about 200 feet to the east , you can see all of Mt. Whitney in the background.  Absolutely beautiful.  Bishop is my favorite place to go climbing.  A lifetime worth of sport climbing(Owens River)  A lifetime worth of bouldering and 10 lifetimes worth of granite in the Eastern Sierra.  And no rain.

The recent trip to the Alabama Hills with Mr. Hurley was also spent with another inspiration - Allen Steck. Allen is currently 87 and climbed a new route in the Alabama Hills with us that day (photo below).

In addition to the Alabama Hills, George's climbing tour included Bishop Creek, Rock Creek (Sideshow [10a] at the Gong Show Cliff), Mammoth Lakes (Various routes at Horseshoe Slab) and Tuolumne Meadows (Dike Route [9] on Pywiack Dome). Not bad for 78!
