Cool TR so far. Well done on the climbing.
Re sand in the tents.
I have noticed that most tents now have the mesh windows without being able to zipper it closed with a nylon panel. Which I'm not to partial to. I like putting up the tent on moderate days with out the fly, but that arangement doesn't give you any privacy.
And Apparently, even with the fly it doesn't keep the dumb sand out. Mad

Yeah, it's fairly annoying. A nice nylon panel to zip closed would have solved all of my problems. Oh well. My hanging blanket strategy worked really quite well for all but the strongest gusts of wind.

If you go back to Donnelly, give Dos Hermanos a try, not so bad for the grade and you don't need a ton of any one size. 4 purple camalots and less of everything else.

The day before I showed up, my partner, Lee, led Dos Hermanos. I don't know how he did, but he kept talking about it over and over!

Also, stay out of the sun, it will destroy you out there. Check out 4x4 for some good shade, and 2nd Meat.

We actually found ourselves sun-chasing this last week, 'twas suuuper chilly in the shade.
