hey everyone

this is a big thank you to everyone here on the Aid climbing Forum who has supplied helpful tips/ideas/etc over the last year or so. i have just got back from my first trip to the valley (totally blown away can't wait to get back.) We managed to do The Prow, Zodiac (clean!) and a one push ascent of the West Face of Leaning tower. thanks to all of you for the enthusiasm, insider information and support you all so willingly deal out. big respect to you...

i have truly learnt the BETTER WAY the HARD WAY

Congrats!

That's some serious climbing for a first visit to the Valley. Nice job.

I'm with you on the "can't wait to get back" thinking. I know how you feel...

It was great to meet you, Patrick, not in the parking lot alongside the other Big Wall Theorists, but on the summit, after your successful ascent of Zodiac.

I'm glad the website has been a source of useful information, and more importantly inspiration!

We are all looking forward to your detailed trip report! [HINT!]

Thanks for making me the tea on the summit, and congratulations on your graduation:

You have advanced from Big Wall Theorist to Big Wall Gumby!

[There]no BWT's on the summit]

Keep on keepin' on!

Cheers,

Pete

P.S. Since my thank you note got moved to the Feedback and Trip Reports Forum, I'll take this opportunity to post the link here in the Aid Climbing Forum, which is where anyone who reads my stuff hangs out anyway.
