Hey Ben,
That was mine; our wonderful Wednesday climbing group helped me get the memorial to the top of Tethys. It was for the one year anniversary of my uncle's passing. The cross (though not the photo) were still there when last I checked. Thanks so much for all the work you do to make the Canyon our favorite place to climb!

Nancy...that was very thoughtful and great memorial for your uncle. May he rest in peace. Just let us know if you need any help maintaining it. Also, in the afternoon, it is very visible from west of The Egg and appears like a white cross with the afternoon sun reflecting off it.

Hi Ben,
I just saw your message from Jan 23 now, and I'm so pleased!! You are so kind! I plan to go up with my husband and our group and reattach the photo and make it waterproof, although it may be April-May before we get the chance. I also plan to bring my aunt out there to see it too (and she can see the particular view you mentioned). The caption of the photo is "Hizzoner", since he had just become a Judge. Once I can lead one of those unnamed routes in the Canyon, I would love to name one "Hizzoner." But I know I have to lead it first so it won't happen right away :) My folks were so impressed seeing the pic on Mountain Project and reading your message and hearing of your and Pam's support. Thanks SO much, and I'll see you folks out there soon! Our best to you and Pam,

Sometime over the long hot summer this memorial and cross appeared on the summit of The Chicken or Elephant Head at Texas Canyon.
