Man what a great weekend the NRP and Seneca !

They don't come bye like this... all to often.

So here I meet up with the Scallywag and her Mates
From New England throw our Nations Capital to our little camp in West virginia . What a trip ! I should mention that they just left Americas camp !! Now how cool is that ( 9/11 Kids )
We are set for weekend events to begin !

While Sally and I head off to climb on the east face while Cayne goes off for a bit of hike
> something about heights < So anyway ... Sally we could boulder this or rope up ? Boulder . U think ... Yah.
I was thinking that I would like to see you on the moves on
conns east ... only to get to broadway ledge to find three other parties on the solar flake. That leave us the Direct . she kicks that 300' like nothing .
So here we sit on S summit only to see Cayne on the N side of the Gunsight .
Cayne what u doing over there ? Ha ! snapping some pics and writing some postcards ... Well how about u hike over here and we can fix some ropes .
And u think it don't get no better then this , chill'n on the ledge with ur mates when along comes a climb'n bud from days gone bye ! Kenny wait Theresa . Dang !
What a way to end a day on the east face . and it just keeps getting up !

The stage is set for West face . So far we are kicken ass and take numbers And enjoying all hospitality from the Nelsons to Yukoms.
We find ourselfs at the base of Thias Direct . Well what do u think girl we have this that the other ! O Dennis I like traverse...Butt Butt ok we can look at it . Now this is a little Danc'e . That first step ! Well u now .
That scallywag danced right throw it ! cool ! Now lets get this third pitch and put a stamp on it ! Sally blow throw it in good style only to finish right out on the summit . so what are we up to now like 750 '

Let me tell yah... this girl is kicken ! No holds to small no pitch too far ... Me I'm just sitting back and taking it all in .

Cayne yah ... So Cayne and Brian hookup to do a hike on the north fork
{ now how many times have I look over to that ridge and said I shore would like to check out that Rock ... well these blocs did it !
Cain u the man !

Lets see thats leaves the Southern pillar we have to do ...
Whats it going to be ? Yah! lets take the ridge all the way !
So Sally takes off and off . Me still chillin when who comes strolling up Roy gap Rd. butt me old bud John Forest gregory . Whats up John ? come on up and tie in , it's all most ur turn . Poor Sally didn't have a clue what was going on . I would have loved to see her face when someone else pop over the ridge ... what ha when did u get a beard Dennis !
But the crux was getting off. All the Hemlocks are Dieing Dang !!!!
Well ... a little over 1000' now and I need a break !

What could be better then to get Sally and her mates on the Via Ferrota!
Cayne and Brain first good look at climbing . For Cayne having a little fear of heights you did good my man !
