Brad, I thought it was a 1 star route til we got to the block... we laughed a very long time about the fact that you HAVE to use that block.

True, but it was a nervous, manic laughter that only comes when you know you've gotten away with something.

I thought the aid seam on the first pitch was quite good.

The best part of the day was definitely the tyrollean.
Especially trying to get the rope over to the tower and watching you Brett Farve the bolting equipment from the rim.

Sadly, the Brett Favre analogy is fitting. Not only does he have the record for the most touchdowns of all time, but also the most interceptions. You got Brett on a good day.

Thats just it, Paul, we couldn't. So we used it. THe thing looks like it should tip right off, like the Amoeba or the Car Door, but it stays even when you yard on it.

A vertical pano of Sam on his way back to the rim with the upper part of the second pitch marked.

TREAD VERY LIGHTLY on that block near the top!

I would have given this route two stars if it had not been for that block.
