Re: Does This One Make It Five Guidebooks?

the best thing about not owning guidebooks is you can claim an FA. this also brings full circle closure to the bolt fairy story. everyone lives happily ever after.

Re: BAD BELAY

hey Mike-thanks for sharing the link. I hope I didn't offend anyone, I'm glad they're ok with posting the video and letting others learn from the experience.

Re: Lower Gorge Access with New Road

Muscle Beach.jpg Such a beautiful drive. The river was clear and a luminescent green, the woods still bare. Seemed like a secretive silence.

Re: John O'Leary Haight - Goodbye my friend.

Thank you for letting me know. To my knowledge I never met John but I would like to share how I believe I was influenced by him.

Why don't people understanad that Facebook is really awful? Are these the same people who drive off the Motherlode Hill into the trees? This site is great. But, why is the latest 'route comments' gone?
