Sun 24th Nov 1963 - San Juan Basin Volcanic Necks
Shiprock
5.6 Southeast Buttress

Plenty of rotten basalt. I rapidly learned how to dodge falling rocks. One, about the size of a baseball cracked the helmet liner I was using for a climbing helmet. Because of emissions from coal fired plants in the area the quality of the rock now is probably worse. Can't climb on it anyhow now because the Navajos don't want you on this, one of thier sacred mountains.
