Beule

Mt. Bunny, the most harrowing
and unforgiving of all peaks. 

Thanks, Julia!

Totally agreed. By the way, no DR means another Monday. It's rough to have 2 Mondays back to back like that ;-)

Oh, dear. Beule is more than capable of delivering two days of disapproval. I feel very unworthy. Job well done, Beule

I know personally that a crack, foul-weather climbing team of 6 fully grown men, 3 well experienced women, two goats and a cat from the mountain mecca of the Pacific Northwest have been lost for over two years trying to ascend Mt. Beule by the northern route over the "eye".

WHO DISTURBS MY SLUMBER?

SixBunnies said...

Ooouch, I've always wanted to try rock climbing ... until now. If I could get close enough to smootch the mouf ... the resulting tumble to my death would be worth it!

I have two "Harles" and I love them! You are beautiful Beule!

Furbeast said...

Story is a certain world-class climbing team was forced to retreat and bivouac overnight at "The Mouf" due to dangerously wiggly conditions on "The Nose".

The team refused to discuss what happened that night, but all exhibit signs of PTDD, post traumatic disapproval disorder.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Oh Furbeast - yes. The best climbers have always warned about the dangers of wiggly conditions at "The Nose" Jim Whittaker refused to go there even.

She who must be obeyed???

Beware the eastern slope, in perpetual gloom! Krakauer wouldn't attempt this climb!

Fleetie said...

It's never a good idea for a stoopid hoomin to attempt to scale any of the disdainful visages carved into Mount Disapprovemore.

The latest stony Disapprover to be added, Beule, is every bit as terrifying as the others.

Beule Point is said to GROWL at night, and seismograph operators for hundreds of miles around claim to have recorded it!

6Bs, I do hope that you meant to say, "I have two Harley's and I am planning to escape on them." Not everyone who comes to this site learned to spell or is able to keep their nerve while tapping out their messages, and our Manchester friend is at a complete disadvantage. I do hope hope our usually strict, RG, will talk/shame you out of STM, or more generically, your disapproval wish. We are alway good for an intervention around here. By the way, thanks for confusing me with Unknown. It triggered a string of fantasies that got me through my Monday - WB of my own who likes smootches. Okay, okay, I said it was a fantasy.

Fleetie said...

Anonymous, you are still cruisin' for a disapprovin'!

And at least this English stoopid hoomin knows that pluralising a word does not involve adding spurious apostrophes!

("I have two Harley's and...")

Anyway...

Yes, Rabbits' Guy is correct; attempting to summit Mt. Beule is a Seriously Bad Idea (TM).

Furbeast said...

@RG, the Nose on El Capitan was first ascended way back in 1957, but "The Nose" on Mt. Bunny has never been successfully conquered. The treacherous wiggling and sudden, violent whisker storms make the route virtually impossible.

As the Sherpa's say "Respect the Bunny, for the Bunny will always win."

This is one most amazing picture and Beule is a bear of a wabbit!

Fleetie, You won't believe this, but I have been doing this all my life, and you are right, I've been wrong - completely, absolutely, unsuspectingly wrong. I had no idea. I feel like my life has been turned around and a brand new day has begun. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I owe you big time! Maybe Manchester and Austin could become sister cities, maybe we can forget about "tires," maybe I can stop proof reading my comments...ahhh, utopia.

That is one amazing Bun!

That's some heart-stopping disapproval, I tell you what.
