JRC gear found. 12-Jun-2020 At 9:23:04 PM jrc
so exciting it was Rod you will never believe it.

bit of an extended family ascent. Took a while on the easy pitches, so 2 members of the party (daring canyoners) stayed behind on the 1/2 way ledge...were planning to abseil off

I continued with 2 others. It was late in the afternoon... third on the rope clipped carabiner onto his harness

ping pang plonk noises ...

' um i think the nut fell out of the 'biner. Sorry about that, (Chief)' (end of nut story for now)

We continue. Get to top after dark and bivvy. Nice starry night. Being October not
too cold.
Dawn- great photos of peaks in sunrise light. Descend and wander round to base of cornerstone to check other 2 are OK. Shout loudly to the 1/2 way ledge area - no response.
Walk back to Balor. As we cross little creek below C Bluff hear pathetic bleat from half way up cornerstone ..."Don't leave us behind".
Trudge (yes, literally) back to base of cornerstone to supervise intrepid canyoner experts abseil off said route on already fixed gear (the old peg). Thought you might have abseiled down the route. Yeah right actually now i know why C Exp. had such a big pack which made them slow - it was full of their bivvy gear. Silent and anticlimactic plod back to Balor. Ate last nights dinner then went home. Frankfurts for lunch overlooking Pantoneys crown; exciting 4wd drive along fire trail!

Back 7 months later with Richard & Ross T this time all too easy. Flew a kite on the summit. 5y later Richard led FA of Zombie Love (DS to Lieben).
Epilogue: (15 y later) Evan finds my 8 1/2 stopper, hangs it on the gate post of my house, thank you Evan!
