Perhaps a few pictures will help, the few who still climb here are reading impaired.

Thanks for the rad thread. I saw a slideshow Jim did at Neptunes years ago called epic failures in which he showed a bunch of those photos. It was a great show because he talked a lot about how climbers only show/talk about successful trips and he really talked a lot about how much he learned from these trips even when they didn't get the summit. And the descents sounded terrifying. By the way those guys were BADASS!!
