Tom Climbs Off the Couch - After Eighteen Years!
This has to be some kind of a record - Tommy gets up off the couch after eighteen years (!) and steps into his aiders, right onto the second pitch of Excalibur on the Southwest Face of El Cap.
Tom went on to lead ten of the route's twenty-eight pitches, which is pretty damn good in my opinion.
I told this to a lot of the Valley Locals, and they were amazed!
The consensus of opinion among the Yosemite hardmen was, "that's proud, dude!"
