Back in 2009 I climbed the Regular Route on Fairview dome with my then, 23 yr old son Kirk. I managed to dredge up the original write up.
So off to work I went for the week wondering if he would still want to go when I got back. Apparently so. We met up in Lee Vining wed night in preparation for the next days climb. We got a fairly early start and beat another party by a few minutes. As I watched him climb I was surprised again and proud to watch him float P1

|Happy on the summit|
