November 10th I climbed the Nose in 5:26 with Mark Melvin.

Sunday, November 11, 2007

Well, after congratulating the Hubers on their record I went up and have now taken two runs up the Nose to see where my fitness level is for taking back the record.

Mark Melvin and I climbed the route in 8:35 three weeks ago and yesterday, Saturday the 3rd of November we climbed the route in 5:26. Mark led the first half and I the second. We made a few logistical areas and were feeling a little shy of the "yosemite fitness" we need to have for the record. So it's more training and we'll be back. want to train with us?

On Sunday September 16th I ran into the Huber Brothers in El Cap Meadow. They seemed in good spirits after their ten hour ascent of The Nose the day before. -They flew in on Friday so it was just a jet-lag-reducing ascent.

Thomas says he'll graciously only beat the current record by 5 or so minutes so there's more to cut off for future parties.

I predict 2:36 - Go Hubers!

If you have news from the valley on their preparations or the day they'll make their first attempts at the record please post, so those close by can come cheer them on.
