A few pictures for David and musings on Hueco Tanks

First off, I promised pics for Dave. Here they are. As usual, I'm no Ansel Adams. Thanks to Rusty for the chairs. Unfortunately they didn't pass the Sarah test and are destined for the thrift store (unless someone claims them first).

I also thought this NY Times article was intersting. Rock climbing is notorious for being incompetently covered in the mainstream media (think Stallone in Cliffhanger) and this does an impressive job of not making climbing sound "extreme", or idiotic and dangerous.

Also notable is that the Spot's very own Carlo Traversi is featured in the photo on the first page. Very cool, Carlo!

Nice looking frame. I dig the non-nonsense look to your stuff.

Disc rotor brace is a cool touch.

It's RAL 3005, Wine Red. I think I wanted it a bit darker, like dried blood, so 3007 Black-Red would probably be wicked looking. But man, that's got a nice look about it.
