Ivo was up top offering to drop ropes?? Classic. What was Ivo doing up there? Finishing up a climb himself?

Nice job guys, I spent Christmas day on the Trip back in 1985. The last 48 hours on the wall it was storming big time. I remember topping out in freezing rain. Reading your account really took me back.

Nice! Here are a couple more of you guys. My climb wasn't as successful, but still gobs of fun! (see video TR)

The quotes are from a book "warrior of the light" by Paulo Coehlo (one of four I read up there!)

Jean Paul! You and your bro Rock hard. Outstanding...You told me you were gonna go, but then the weather came in and I thought you'd a probably bailed. But NO! Sweet success is yours.

Up and Away!

"I must not be much of a climber because my favorite day was this day where we sat out the worst of the storm reading and drinking coffee and whisky."

Actually, I think this puts you up there with the greats...;-)

Gene pool - great TR...thanks for the pix. Brings back memories - I did the third ascent with Ron and Dale waaaay back in the day. 5 days, 4 bivys and we froze our butts off on the last bivy 'cuz we got caught in a freak spring snowstorm and didn't have enough warm stuff. Looks like you guys were well prepared but I know it must have been pretty darn cold up there.

Congrats, jb
