Thanks for the Trail and Climb Day Success!!!

 2 April 2010.   The first  Powerlinez Trail and Climb day was a terrific success, with many thanks going out to a core group of Linez locals, and everyone else who lent a hand or moved a rock as they came on through.
        If you haven't seen the new 'bridge' crossing,  take a look and you'll see the fine work that a couple of come-alongs, a chainsaw, and a sledge can do.  And right next to it is a new rock-hop stream crossing that was tested with a 2 1/2 year old in tow!
        Follow the Green Carabiner trail from there,  and you'll see a few fallen trees cut out of the way, and up at the High Electricity boulder, the prickers are cleared.
        Afterward the trail work,  we hung three ropes on the Papa Bear wall, and finished around the corner on 'Back to the Wall' and 'No Rest for the Wicked.'  Everyone agreed that the 'Linez were worth every bit of effort.  More pictures/video to come!
        Overall,  many many thanks are owed: to Jenny from the Access Fund,  Steve Knowlton,  Dave Barone and Sally,  Lucas, from the Gravity Vault, and Mike, and Mike jr.,  Dave Chauvin, Mike and Ralph, Billy Yago, and Tauni and Jono Crefeld.  Thanks for the spirit, contributions, and for taking care of the Powerlinez.  Jon Crefeld.
