Had the pleasure to meet Pat and Audrey on our Mt Jackson hike today. Good to see you both ! It's been a few years but you have not changed at all. Not in winter clothing anyways. :-) What a day today was, uh ?
Hope to bump into you again.

Brings back good memories of when Wild Things's John Bouchard (of North Cornflakes) did the route (in one push, if I recall). 50 is old for climbing ? Nonsense. Look at the likes of Fred Beckey ! I know people that are close to their sixties and that lead NEI 6 ice very easily. But then...
