Happy New Year!

I'm writing from Buenos Aires where I'm staying for a short while before traveling to Patagonia for two or three months. The book continues its ambulatory tour of old friends and far-flung outposts of the tribe.

The last I heard, several additions have been made including Roger Breedlove, Spencer Lennard, Steve Sutton, Rick Accomazo, and internet climbing historian Steve Grossman. As soon as I get copies of their signatures those images will be posted.

I've really been touched by the outpouring of support for this project, the goodwill it has generated, and the way it has reconnected so many climbers from a previous generation of visionaries. In a small way, this makes climbing more than just climbing, and more like community.
