I won't comment on the act itself...are they going to take care of it? Otherwise, we should contact some potentially interested folks at the Pleasant Grove ranger station.

I tweeted him and told him he was a bitch. Then I looked at his tweets prior to the one posted with the original picture.

4 AM, ready to go, Lone Peak #Summit in my sights - well almost, it is pitch black!

5:45 AM and we're cruising...45 minutes to sunrise, unbelievable stars and moon...off to #Summit

By the way, I'm texting as I wait for my climbing partner to 'take care of business' wild-style... #KillingMe!

As we head to #Summit, just know that we're also wearing 30 lb. and 40 lb. weight vests... #Beasts!

2.5 hours in, wow, legs are smashed...nearly 2 hours straight up! That said, it's right there #Summit

2 false #Summits absolutely killing us...4 straight hours of climbing - nearly to the #Cirque, a ways to go! http://yfrog.com/h8yy5rrj

10.5 hours later, 13 miles, 6,000 vertical feet, packs, and 30 pound weight vests, we made #Summit...and you?! http://yfrog.com/h06zjhpej

Seriously, nobody on twitter gives a damn about your exact location on a peak none of your followers have ever heard of. What a douche.

one of the best "tweets" of all time "just know that we're also wearing 30lb and 40lb weight vests..."
