Patrick - good point about the land withdrawl ... I've been meaning to post the same question to the board. I don't think you're going to find any more info in Darlington's book. My understanding of the Whitesides / Freedom Ridge land grab was that it was a long-term temporary land restriction granted by BLM to Area 51. I wouldn't make plans to storm up Freedom Ridge November 7, 2001 but it will be interesting to see what comes of this. Would something like a renewal of the agreement even be public information? There is a history of friction between BLM and A51 so who knows might happen if this agreement has to come up for review and renewal.

Sedalia Mike (hoping that someday Freedom Ridge will be back on "our side" - climbing Tikaboo scares the hell out of me!)
