To descend work down and right from the top to rappel anchors atop British Airways.
Don’t wish to edit the whole thing cause you got it sort of correct.... two others were involved, me- Guy Keesee and Dean Fidelman.... Craig and Pope walk by our table and Craig says “come on let’s do a new route, grab your rack” so we do.
We get on it after pushing the sharp yucca at the base over a we bit. I forget who did the first go but we agreed one couldn’t fall. All 4 of us took turns on the yo-yo .... then up high when you can go two ways.... Crag went the easy way and we were amazed when he made it without any more pro. Then we all climbed it and while we were sitting on top sharing a victory smoke. Up comes John and Kevin Worell. Craig yells down to John “come grab the second ascent! It’s good” that’s when John turns around and says “Naaaa.... we got better things to do” Crag wanted to name the climb “Plum Pie” because that’s what one would look like if you fell on the yucca. We didn’t have any place to turn in our “FA report” because Wolfe had stopped going to Josh and Randy had not started keeping records for a GB. Now you know the rest of the story.
