Thanks for the addendum, beautiful, gripping piece of writing. They should have invited you to K2 for your sixth sense alone!

Burly indeed! Nice images Reilly. Here's another bump for alpine.

An old climbing partner, Dave Kilokofsky (sp) May he R.I.P. perished on that face with a his future brother-in-law to be and another fellow who's name eludes me now, back in the late 80's. They got hit by a storm and presumably decided to keep moving to a better bivy, they were found at the base still roped in a way to suggest the above assumptions.

Impressive! I remember being near the top of Liberty Ridge, when something cut loose on the Wilis Wall.The ground shook, the noise was deafening, and I thought I was going to sh*t my pants. You guys had big balls. Lucky you had big empty heads to carry them in! :)

Reilly that's a great thread pics and write up. Did you bring a Cheburashka up there with you? Did you end up on K2?

I went back to Seattle to consult the Tibetan Book of the Dead for the
difference between deluded and disillusioned.

Hahaha!
Reilly, that's exactly what you should've done, considering you'd just outsmarted the Reaper!

Great tale well told--and photos to boot. You rock!

I hadn't read that until just now either.
Holy moly! Batman!

And out past the deposition zone like a mouse from a cannon shot Reilly, with tucked tail, K2 aspirations, and his very good sense intact: two out of three.

Well I guess you pre-paid for a lot of sh#t-talking credit here with that report. Pretty gnarly dude. Glad you are still with us, and over the years I appreciate your combination of bluntness and snark anchored in sound reason and dry humor.
