Hey Andy, I finally got myself a Summitpost account - I agree with your account except that am a "far better" rock climber - not at all true! You're better than you think.
I also enjoyed the line you chose when we were simulclimbing the that one part of the Arete just after the towers. We should go back sometime for that unclimbed (?) slab that we were admiring across the col. looked like a decent climb. Hope all is well!
"Never! Never, Marge! I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. Sure, I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky odors - oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called city fathers, who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about what's to be done with this Homer Simpson?!"
