Comments: I got washed through those rocks in the foreground last Friday evening!
It's truly a helpless feeling to be bouncing off those boulders at the mercy of the ripping current while taking head high peaks on the head! All you can do is stay calm,not fight it, and go with the flow!
I finally washed out on the other side of the point unscathed. I eventually got a water start and sailed for another hour and got some great mast high waves before dark. No harm no foul!

Comments: I just love this image of Dale! IMO: Dale is right up there with ANY of the true heros of the sport of rock climbing! Easly one of the best crack climbers that ever lived. Dale excelled on ice as well.Check out the image of Dale on pg.103 of Yvon Chouinard's "Climbing Ice"

Thanks for the possitive report Scott, I always enjoyed the line every time I did it.It's a stand alone route that compliments it's two brothers very well.

Comments: Keep on posting your stuff, Bob. You're the real deal!
Beagle, A.H. is a long time friend and personal hero of mine as well. He is one of those folks that would pop up in strange places. I remember he was working in a "Burnstine Appleby" electronics store in Cynderella City shopping mall back in the late '70s. He got me into climbing the cracks between support posts below the parking structure of the mall. Turned out to be good crack training. One of his Eldo. routes "----spar" I posted an image... more >>
