Jailhouse Update and Planet Granite Competition

My friend Tom Addison has just delivered some GREAT news via Facebook:

Tom has worked with the landowner of Jailhouse and with the Access Fund (I’m a member, are you?) for a while now trying to sort out access issues there. I’m relatively new to the scene at Jailhouse but I know everyone who climbs there on a regular basis and loves this area, myself included, can appreciate Tom’s dedication and hard work on this issue. We can all breathe a little easier now knowing that the land will never be sold off and parceled out and our access will never be taken away. THANK YOU, TOM!!!

Late afternoon at the House. Not sure how I got this photo or who even took it but it's a beautiful shot.

On Thursday I’m headed to Yosemite to try and send my project Drive On (V11) and to pick up my car that broke down there on Saturday. Photos and video to come. Here are some photos of my friend Ben Polanco sending it a couple of seasons ago;
