So its been a little while since yu-min and i came down from El Cap. I know while I was up there I swore that I wouldn't do any more walls as the suffering is too much...but...I want to go up there again!
I guess I have an alpinist's memory in that I forget how the suffering was. Somebody suggested mescalito and we have been looking at the topo. Perhaps a winter ascent of Tangerine Trip? Maybe we can wait until the spring to do the shield???
Pain is temporary, glory is forever (so is stupidity).
