John,

When I did the "Nose" in 1971, with George Myers, it was George's first big wall, and I had never climbed with him before. Sometimes you get lucky joining up with someone you never climbed with.

As you know, Goorge went on to write many big wall topo books.

All my excuses to Doug Madara. Still, it is in super topo and big wall.

I had a good partner in 2011... :( I was the poor one

Indeed, I didn't "spaghetti" the rope and the king swing with the haul bag and the miserable one was easy and technically, I don't make any mistake even if my partner haul all the time except four pitch.
