Reticent Wall - Dr. Piton above Lay Lady Ledge popular
[Click here to return to page 1]
This is page 5 in my presentation, the beginning of Reticent Wall, at the top of the first pitch I think. Dumb place to bivi, eh? I remember being so amazed when Sean insisted we move from our plush bivi on Lay Lady Ledge, which you can see below, up to the hanging one you see here.
But the real story of Reticent Wall begins not here, but at the base.
I do not like to be called a "fraud" or a "fake".
I believe the best way that I can establish credibility, besides using the photos and trip reports that appear in my profile, is to provide you with a reference.
Generally speaking, the "higher" your reference, the better your credibility.
For instance, it would be better to get a reference from your mayor than say your pastor or your employer. Accordingly the mayor of Toronto would be better than the mayor of Oakville. Better still would be the Premier of your province, and better still the Prime Minister of Canada!
But since none of you Merricans knows who he is, I think I'll get you the best reference of all - I'm going to go straight to the TOP for this one, folks.
The reference whom I am going to provide you with is the GEORGE FRICKIN' BUSH of climbing.
