If I remember correctly, Sahale Pk bench marker is incorrectly labled Boston Pk. Try to figure that one out when you are on top, but with limited visibility...

On the N face of Baring, isn't there a bit that says "The next weekend they returned. In high heat and lacking water, Beckey progressed 20 feet past the previous high point and drilled a bad bolt in 4 hrs, then had to return to work. The remaining climbers easily finished the route the next day".

1) That must be the only time in his life he had to go to work,

2) Years later and he is still choked they finished the line without him!

3) 4 hrs for 20 feet and 1 bolt sounds HARDDDDD!
