It was a good outing. I recall is hiking around the far end of Colchuck Lake in the evening. You asked if thre were bears here. I confidently stated "Why, I've been here dozens of times, never seen a bear." 10 secsonds later something sounding very much like a bear issued a low growl from the vegetation next to the trail.

I remember looking into brush and asking you "is that a bear?". Only to turn and see you had started double-timing down the trail :D
Get well soon!

You don't have to be faster than the bear, just faster than your partner :D

EB - Now that I remember it, that bug made it so you "let" me lead that slabby crux on Prussik. I barely pulled it off, but glad I did. Thanks!

I never lead that pitch if I can avoid it. Pretty exposed, insecure, and unprotected for a 5.7. I doubt that old ring angle piton would hold much of a fall. :o

Thanks! I have some reason to be hopeful; I started a new drug therapy. Thank goodness for health insurance, it costs $100 a day to keep me on it. Hope it works.
