TPARRRRRRR!!!

Hey Y'all; figured I'd add my two cents. It was awesome as always to see & ride with everyone. Even better with the addition of the stylie TPR (arrrrr) and awesome crew there.

After that soggy snow on Monday, I'm thinking that hardboots might just be the route for me.. dun dun dun.. :twisted:

p420, can we be expecting some video footage of the trip? I dig the cornice-cutting-cord idea.. but it might just be worth hauling up some dynamite instead.. 8)

The cornices there are HUGE right now. Did anyone see today's ESAC advisory? According to the Tuolomne rangers, "It has been 23 years since we have had this much snow on the ground in April." It would have been interesting to cut a cornice, but I would only consider it for the tiniest of tiny. Those things can break way further back than you might think... this is exactly what happened to Bill from TPR, and I would guess he knew the area pretty well. Unfortunately I think that dropping rocks and cornices would have just told us what we already knew from the pit, which is that it just wasn't the right time for the big lines. Believe me, I wanted to drop those lines more than anyone.

Of course, if Ecobrad had been there, we would have had the additional option of just sending him down first. :)

And I would have torn it up in style. I'm not going to let 30++ foot snowpack that hasn't slid all year deter me.
