Day Hiker downclimbing the short class 4+ section in the chute adjacent to the ramp between the col and Employee Cyn. The holds are good but awkward. The climbing is steep but easy.

Not as scared

as his partner, who nearly took a fatal fall not too far from that same spot earlier that day.

Re: Not as scared

Glad you didn't buy the farm. I took a fall on a peak in Utah in early September that made me realize my mortality. It was also class 4.

Re: Not as scared

That kind of thing will wake you up. This near-fall was on the steep upper portion of the slickrock ramp. About 200 feet of exposure, I lost my footing and started to slide - I quickly grabbed a nearby bit of vegetation (a small bush) and stopped myself. I then backtracked to Mike, who'd found the chute in the photo above, and sighed with relief.
