The Cables

My one experience: Cables? Who needs cables? Probably in frustration over some cow in front of me, I hung a right and was ascending to the right of the cables--Class 3 I'd guess, or maybe easy Class 4. A woman and her little son were coming down, and he saw me first. "Look, Mom!" he said. She got a look of horror on her face and said something like, "Oh, don't look, Johnny! He's a crazy fool!"
A crazy fool! HeheeheeheeheHAho! Cracks me up. She was right, of course, but not about my choice of route! =)

Re: The Cables

LOL!! The cables themselves are no big deal. It's the line of people going up the cables that makes things scary. I got caught in a gridlock and it wasn't much fun. Next time, I'll camp near the river and get up to the cables before sunrise.
