The Fourth of July is an anniversary date to me, in climbing at least. On the 4th in 2000 I first put on the harness and shoes, and hit the rock. In 2001, I did the same thing, on the same route. Gene Jose, Chuck Lindsay, Katie, and I headed up Durrance to watch the fireworks coming from the KOA and the Trading Post down below. Nothing like sitting on the Tower for those few minutes of colorful light, it gives you a different perspective of the holiday festivities. It might have been safer too, given the drinking that was surely going on and numerous cars I saw below.
