No rope even!

I hope it was fun!

Re: Impressive!

I think that rope would make it even more dangerous for the partner. We did not want to progress slowly and create anchors. It is actually not so bad!

I wish I could maintain

that much flexibility!

Did Matt continue to the summit?

Will you create a trip report on this one?

Re: I wish I could maintain

Thanks. Yes, Matt continued on.... Report? I am not sure yet.....but I know that I will go back. I find sitting on knife edge a perfect place for a meditation.

Re: I wish I could maintain

Yes, and perhaps you deserve a cold bottle of rose after doing this?

Wow Liba,

It doesn't happen often, but it just did again. Getting POTD two days in a row. Congrats are in order. You've got another bottle of wine for tonight?

Actually ..

It'd be interesting if more people
lived their lives on a knife edge.

Re: Right on.......

Thank you again... this edge is so famous among people who hike Colorado fourteeners. I liked it very much and was surprised how easy it was to move along... I heard so many stories from other climbers, and had this scary imagination, but it was just fun...

Re: Vow!

Thanks, it is the best fourteener in Colorado (fourteneer = 14,000 foot mountain). They got over 54 peaks in Colorado, and I am still missing 5 to climb.
I think that I have this photo on facebook...haha

Ah, no thanks...

John Kirk tells it like it is and for me, that is enough. Still, it makes a great picture even if it makes me a bit uneasy for that person.

Re: Ah, no thanks...

There is a video of a guy running it... that it pretty crazy. It was not very windy at that moment...

Re: Ah, no thanks...

Is that video on U tube? I'd love to see that one. Running it? Yikes.
