There is some cool history to this bridge that started at a Bro Night in Bishop. I was talking about future bridges with Marty, and this dude (forgot his name) said he had some wood to donate to the bridge cause. I met up with him in Round Valley, and he gave us some beautiful old redwood 2X8’s. “Some Robinson guy used to live here, and that wood was the floor of a climbing gym that was torn down here” he said and showed me the old foundation. My interest was piqued. Climbing? Bishop? Robinson? I sent off an e-mail to Doug asking if it was him? We used the redwood for the decking of the bridge. As is often the case, I didn’t hear back from Doug for a month or so - but I finally got the note: “Hey just got back from a trip and saw this in my inbox - I am blown away by your message! That was the floor of Dale Bard’s gym that he built on my old property in Round Valley!” And now it’s helping climbers cross the river!” Mar 23, 2018
