Route Climbed: N/NE Ridge Date Climbed: 17 August 1981
Did the entire La Vergine/Il Gallo traverse, rappeling the South Ridges. Car to car about 6 or 7 hours, if memory serves correctly. Glorious rock and views!
One minor catastrophe - at that time I had long hair with long bangs. Got my bangs caught in the brake bar while looking down during the free hanging rappel off the summt. Had to grit my teeth and rip out the hair to continue. Looked really stupid for a while, too, with the big gap in the center of my bangs!
"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."
