Surprised Al didn't press this news yet!

The ledge above Browns Fist/Lower Refuse was cleaned this morning by a combined volunteer effort including Mountain Rescue Service, local guides, and Friends of the Ledges. Both routes below have significant dirt/debris on them that will require some heavy rain to clean up. Use caution below the AP Treat area as a lot of the debris ended up in this area.

LOL - I had made plans to go take my van to the tire place and then go climbing at Lost Horizon at 10, so I couldn't get to it. That said, it was a very good effort by the community to take care of a problem. I was very happy to see the turnout. Thanks to all who participated.

FYI - The original tree that fell down is still in the middle of the trail, right below AP Treat. This is something that should be addressed by the Echo Lake Park people. In addition I noticed that there is still some stuff up on the little ledge above Sticks & Stones, so just be aware. If I get the opportunity in the next day or 2 I will try to get over there & deal with it. No promises tho!!! I did not get a good look at the bolt(s) on S&S or AP, so if you are going to climb them, look carefully before you climb.

Well done Dave !!!!!!!!!!!!

next time wear a helmet running ?  :o

Did my 45th out of 46 in the Daks yesterday. Up a herd path and managed to stab a busted off fir branch about an inch into my forearm. Higher whacked the crap out of my head on a low hanging branch, about the third time this year I've hit it hard enough on low hanging rock and trees on a 'hike' to see stars and think about concussions. I'm beginning to think that hiking helmets might be a business opportunity, especially since no one seems to be concerned about looking like a dork anymore.

Gotta admit that your wreck was much more spectacular. Kudos on shaking it off and dealing.

Don't worry Al, when it is something that the multinational corporations want, like the Pacific Trade Deal, the republicrats and demicans will all hold hands and vote "Yes."

They only fight about stuff that the multinationals don't care about. 

As Jesse Ventura said: "National politics is like TV wrestling- it is fake."
