The Jeffers verse is from "The Broken Balance" in The Double Axe.

Your email requests, comments, suggestions, bug reports, questions, misc. reflections, etc. are always welcome...

Be sure to write with your crucial questions more than just a couple of hours before you're planning on leaving for the trailhead! You'd be surprised what percentage of mail like that I get... sometimes it's upwards of a week between visits to my inbox, so I can only rarely provide such semi-realtime advice.

Especially write me if you've done, or might like to team up to do, some of the Centennials. I'd eventually like to work up to things like Teakettle, Mt Wilson, the Crestones, etc. Two of my dream trips at this point consist of 1) going back in to the Needles to do Jagged; 2) taking Little Bear by the direct route on the NW face -- followed, of course, by the Little Bear - Blanca Ridge. (Ok, so it's not the Ellingwood Arete, but it's some tough climbing none-the-less...) I'd also like to hear from you if do any of these summits by the same route I followed.
