It's in Korean, but the photos are good, and I recognize my friend Hristo!

I'm not sure what it means when the watch says 40:10, though?

It took me a bit to figure out from other pix, but 40.10 are the seconds. Hours and minutes are above and are blured or glared out in many pix. Looks like they were ~4:20 am to ~3pm, as seen at the bottom of the watch, so ~10:40, after what appears to be several practice runs on both Half Dome and the Nose.

Nice job! Seems many climbers are into that 4:20 thing. ;)

I recognize this power duo. I got past by them after the king swing last weekend. They were "on a workout", jogging up the captain.

Congrats guys and thanks for saving our tail with the pig.
