Re: Definite a top TR

Thanks EastKing! Hey I salute you for moving out west and climbing ever higher! I did the same thing after college and it made all the difference for me.

Re: Many thanks...

Thanks so much Hiltrud! I'm sorry to have missed the plaque for Rahel that you placed below the Monzino Hut. We must have walked right nearby.

Re: ...

The ridge is still there for the long good weather windows! Gaston Rebuffat said that October can be a good time, "the couloirs are very quiet." But the days are short (yikes...).

Re: We all do it for...

Thanks Rick! Is your free air-fare transferable? I can strap myself to the bottom of a B-52. :D

Re: Very, very

Absolutely. It was fun to write, apologies if the drama is a little over the top! I try to keep my head in the place it was while actually on the climb, where risks and steepness loom larger than they do once safely on the ground. From the ground I'd just say it's a good climb, not too hard. Maybe bring a warmer sleeping bag or don't bivy, just walk all night :D.

Great Report

What a climb you guys did and well reported too...
I met Dan this summer in Chamonix and we tried twice to climb together but weather and sickness stopped us...I am glad he finally climbed something really good!

Good job!

Re: Great Report

Ah right on! Yeah, you tell him that...he's glad for the climb but equally bummed that we weren't rock climbing those nice days! :D

Amazing

Another great report from you, it looks like you had a great time! It certainly put the Innominata in the map for me, for one of these days.

Just a note, though: I don't think John Harlin II was soloing the Eiger when he died, he was with Dougal Haston if I remember correctly.

Re: Amazing

Thank you, I just fixed the error! I hope you climb it one day, I'd love to hear your impressions.
