I think that rope would make it even more dangerous for the partner. We did not want to progress slowly and create anchors. It is actually not so bad!

that much flexibility!

Did Matt continue to the summit?

Will you create a trip report on this one?

Thanks. Yes, Matt continued on.... Report? I am not sure yet.....but I know that I will go back. I find sitting on knife edge a perfect place for a meditation.

Yes, and perhaps you deserve a cold bottle of rose after doing this?

It'd be interesting if more people
lived their lives on a knife edge.

Thank you again... this edge is so famous among people who hike Colorado fourteeners. I liked it very much and was surprised how easy it was to move along... I heard so many stories from other climbers, and had this scary imagination, but it was just fun...

Thanks, it is the best fourteener in Colorado (fourteneer = 14,000 foot mountain). They got over 54 peaks in Colorado, and I am still missing 5 to climb.
I think that I have this photo on facebook...haha

John Kirk tells it like it is and for me, that is enough. Still, it makes a great picture even if it makes me a bit uneasy for that person.
