More Torch Songs

Gregory Rukavina has more intimacy with his inner child than most kids I know. He's also a phenomenal teacher, whether it's chess or 5.0 chimney moves. He was generous as always with his time this past weekend at the Trapps with Tobias, who is always comfortable with his guidance.
No the angle of this image has not been modified to make the participants look even more manly...
Yes, there was a bit of trepidation...
but the chimney behind Laurel proved enjoyable, to a point.
and afterwards a brief break.
and a faint ghost of Muir haunted the woods of New York this weekend...

John and the Tobe hit the AMC practice slabs recently, neither for the first time. Both first climbed outdoors here, albeit 2 score apart. They both seemed to enjoy revisiting those early days.
