Wednesday Night – Dolt Tower
Tuesday night was spend on Sickle Ledge. Wednesday was a good day of climbing up Stoveleg Cracks to the ledge at Dolt Tower. This is a good flat spot to spend Wednesday night, although only large enough for one party. (11 pitches so far).
Trina had an early morning surprise visitor on Wednesday by the name of Hans Florine! Hans along with Alex Honnold hold the speed climb record for climbing The Nose in 2 hours 23 minutes 46 seconds. Yes they do in under 2.5hours what it takes most climbers 4-5 days. They only carry a small pack with some water and food, so there are no heavy haul bags with overnight gear. Hans is also known for climbing The Nose more than 100 times! I was SO inspired by his book: ON THE NOSE: you can buy it here: http://www.hansflorine.com/?page_id=252
