Damn, that's strong group !

I was remembering a climb I did in the Valley years ago..dwindling energy ? or  something like that. A Donini line from '75 i think, bordering on 5.12..I'd give it that..before cams or good shoes,  etc..I think only 2  5.12 's in the Valley at that time

Of course Erickson only had to do Naked Edge and then retire IMO... 8)

Yes.  This is new this season.  I climbed sea of holes last summer and the base area looks different.

The route saw some rock fall a few years back when the flake below the pine tree of dike route/ pathfinder let go.... Fresher than that?

John,

Donini tells me that Jim Erickson has turned into quite a climbing gym rat. I always liked that guy, as he always had a really great upbeat attitude. I remember doing MF with him, in the Gunks, and a few other climbs. He was there with his brother, who also climbed.

I have a great photo of him, Goldstone, Stannard, and a few others, hanging out at the Uberfall.

I noticed some fresh rock and scars on the first pitch of sea of holes.  Any idea when this happened?  It doesn't affect the route just the base area  is a little different.

More heart stuff.  SUCKS.  But you'll beat it this summer just like you did last summer.  Good luck John keep us posted.  This summer, every time I peel off an easy slab route, I'll think of you laughing at me.

5.6, tops.  You'll cruise it.
Heard the sternotomy sucks, though.

Luck, John.

Rock Climbing: Trad / Re: Less traveled classic moderates on Cathedral

Just thought I would mention that a week ago, I climbed on Cathedral and Whitehorse with Sam Streibert, who did the 1st ascent
of Diagonal back in 1970, with Mike Stultz. Sam is 73, and still gets out occasionally. We did the Armadillo Route last year.

I have an email from Sam where he advised me to put gas on that PI and burn it off!
