many of the routes on this wall were named; stich in time, long riders, pinch overhang,
long live the spirit of Robert Drysdale.

I am always up for a history lesson, and making things right, rest assured. Even if it all comes down to fuzzy recollections in the end.
Personally, I find this whole band of limestone intriguing, stunning, and sometimes mind boggling. And, I have for the last thirteen years or so...
It certainly presents a myriad of challenges.
Really, I am just trying to entice people to check it out, because if they do, there is a 50/50 chance that they will love it. And the way I feel about it, I think Rob would love to see the sports action, in a place that he left so much of his energy and promise!
I have had visions of a "Drysdale Trail" that would link this whole band as one, and really unearth the wealth of climbing that (in my minds eye), I know Rob was thinking about...... Kindred spirits. JJ
