Comments: There is a credible report of a turkey vulture nest in the cave above Emergency Brake and Nobody's Home. Please consider giving these guys a little space until they fledge. I'll post a little signage up there this week to indicate where the birds are.

Comments: Agreed - great stone, great place to build a wall, great passersby saying kind things (for the most part). Made a hard project go a lot better. It was a gift to be able to stack stones and process a really devastating year in Eldo.

More deets to follow, but the Eldo Griphoist rig (with some new trickery ) will be in operation.

We'll be working on a trail out of the streamside parking lot. No hiking. Just learning and playing.

Comments: Fixed it, Matt. The online database of fixed hardware is a pretty new feature, and some of the data needs lovin'.

Not unlike much of the hardware in our beloved chosspile.

Comments: Last Fall, the park was alerted to some potential loose rock around Shirt Tail. I did a couple of inspection/mitigation trips over the winter. This is a picture of about the same spot in December 2012:

Pre-slide.


Some time in March, and again a few weeks ago, some bigger stuff slid.

It's been a tough winter/spring for freeze/thaw. Big stuff is coming down all over the place. The trail from Rincon to Cadillac is a mess, the Wind Tower trail got smacked, and I think there's more to come. H... more >>

Comments: In addition to being one gnarly individual and about the nicest guy you'd ever meet, Billy is responsible for a LOT of the trail work in Eldo. Every time I'm looking at a trail disaster, I think WWBD.

Puts a BIG smile on my face to hear that he's climbing.
