Thats a good question. Could be something this thanksgiving in Zion with my girlfriend.

Hey Jaybro,

I was more scard prior to leaving the ground, and prior to leading out on 1 and 10. After you get moving you find a groove.


Did I buy some ebay swag from you?


At one point I opted for the 3' sloped stone ledge below the fish ledge. It sucked but at least I got to streach my legs out. Shortly after I fell asleep my right leg fell off the ledge into the abyss. That scared the sh#t out of me, I was awake right now!

Everyone else,

Super good job! From Lorna too, as she doesn't frequent the Taco... Nice job beating the desire to go down. Maybe next time, we can show the way down the ledges in 2 hours from Zodiac!! ;)

Did you see that guys eyes?
He was stoked. Or spooked, one or the other.
Looked like he just took a huge hit off a Crack pipe, if that's the rush you get, sign me up.
Dean looked like "Ho Hum, another day at the office, this MoFo better have brung Beer."

Hey Doc Rock,

More stoked than spooked. Ok maybe a little spooked here and there too, but all in all more stoked. And yes Dean is pretty even keeled.

Too bad that idiot Andrew from VisitLasVegas dropped by.

I don't know about that, M.H. I think it's a reflection of how awesome the trip report is, when Vegas is trying to piggyback on their fame.

I think you guys should at least get comped at the Sammy Davis Jr. room or something.

Wow, proud first wall, Prod!
I was under the impression that Dean is quite an experienced (solo) wall climber, though? Maybe he was just trying to impress me :-).
Either way, sounds like an awesome adventure, and I'm glad the food poisoning horrors ended on the ground.

Hope to run into either and both of you on the rocks!
