My buddy and I set this up about 3 years ago before the nice new bolts on top of the Camel; and most recently we set up this up in June and my buddy walked the line. I'll post a picture once I dig through some photos.

Wow, this brings back some memories. In the early 1970s we did a trip through our high school where we rapped down from the buttress, climbed a 5.easy route on the south side of the Camel, and then did a Tyrollean back to the top of the buttress. Thanks to Ernie Morgan and Mike Forney for being willing to take a bunch of teenagers on some fantastic adventures!

The tyrolean traverse that OB used to do. The last team to do it, led by Mike F., was in 1972 when the large anchor boulder on top of the Camel became unstable. Photo credit: Dan Madden. Photo courtesy of Mike Fischesser.
