     2011 is the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of the vertical wall of Half  Dome. It was 1957 when Royal Robbins and his team climbed all the way up. I’ve gotten to know Royal and interviewed him as part of my Half dome app. (See link above) I edited it down to the 15 minute max allowable by YouTube. If you’d like to meet a living legend, head over to Modesto this Friday at 8 pm at the Gallo Center for the Arts, 1000 I St., Modesto. Royal will be giving a talk. He’s the Babe Ruth of Big Wall climbing. Tickets are $12-$50. Royal just released the 2nd book in his autobiography series. For more information: www.galloarts.org.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: Runnin’ down a dream. That never would come to me;
workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads. Runnin’ down a dram.” – Tom Petty
