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).

hey there snowy... oh, MY... i was kind'a feeling the same way about doing novels/writing, and the editing "forever" editing that goes with them... :)

keep on pressing on, but say, deep inside, on either trail, in the end-work, we will be glad... glad it when its over, and glad we are starting out on a new challenge...

oh my... even if we near-abouts vowed we'd never do it...

Hey, Snowey... Mescalito is Grim in Winter...I know some guys that did the Trip in full winter conditions, but they said the top was pretty grim. Zode, maybe, if ya catch a good window.
