Comments: It is hard to determine if the stress fracture of the metatarsal was from the talus or the weight of Alexis's pack which had quite the display of paraphernalia including a painting station, enough bolts and hangers to spray the side of Half Dome, two sandwiches (some of that was later eaten by a small dog), hammers, chains, etc. None the less, this is a great line! Thanks Alexis (who also is not the model of stability...but a hell of a great guy).

Comments: This sounds more like a route and less like an area?

Comments: Friday the 31st and Aug. 1st were predicted to be rain days in the Jungle by the MP rain dropping symbols at the top of the page. Once again, NOT TRUE! Fri. and Sat. were great climbing days though Sun. it did start to rain around noon when I left. June seemed more like the Aug. monsoonal month so maybe Aug. will be uncharacteristically dry? Anyway, there are some great new lines soon to be posted and don't let those a fore mentioned drops dissuade you from having fun on them!

Comments: On 7/7/15 (a very unusually cool July day) Phyllie and I summited Martin's Tower. We found that Cullen Kirk had signed the register after free soloing the line and leaving his cleaning tool behind. Anyone know his email? I will send him the tool.

Comments: When viewing the new MP weather symbols at the top of the cover pages one might be dissuaded. There were four couples climbing and having a good time in the Jungle Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We climbed hard and were never bothered by wet weather! Around 3 am each morning there were some short and light showers which were welcomed. It may be that those symbolic rain drops predict the worse case scenario and not always reality.

Comments: We have gotten off to a late start this year. However, the road up is in great shape (no problem for two wheel drive) - best in years - and after today's rain, the weather looks like it will settle in to a bit of normalcy. The wild flowers should be exceptional after this wet spring. I hope to see you in the Jungle this season.

Comments: My friend Crusher and I saw what looked like, smelled, tasted, and felt (unfortunately) in every available body orifice, a limestone material making up the cap rock. Though it may seem to be composed of Limestone...it, in fact, is not. I believe the bottom of the towers are an unusually well cemented example of the Entrada Formation (160 million years old). The cap rock is a very dense and weathered example of the Dakota Formation (a sandstone and 98 million years old). Yes, there are a few y... more >>

Comments: The last comment was thoughtful and added by someone who most likley has bolted and FAed more than a few lines. Unless you were there on that fateful FA day, then the only meaningful thing one can say is "thank you for the work"

Comments: Gopher snakes are GREAT snakes that eat all sorts of things we humans despise!
They often coil and shake their tail to rattle near by vegetation in an evolutionary effort to convince predators they are venomous. With the onslaught of we humans this is not working out so well. Still, a great snake!

Comments: Hay Stan,

The transition to the arete is tricky but once done then you wonder why you took so long. Here is a pic that shows the start to the move right. mountainproject.com/v/10726669...

Comments: Grammatical point, (Noun[edit]. tufa (countable and uncountable, plural tufas) but they named it so they can do whatever. And good for them and us! It is a title that has significance to those that put up the line...we must not judge.
