El Cap is an incredible wall, but unfortunately very crowded. Some years ago a friend and I started up "The Nose" route and climbed only a few pitches only to find out that there were 17 parties in front of us on the next 1000 feet. We ended up rapping off.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
