Lurking Fear

Mommy & daddy on top of El Cap...3 nights & 3.5 days of effort and the worst part still remains: the 8 mile hike down through mosquito infested forest with all the shit on our backs...shouldda slept on top & gone down the east ledges (July 2009).

Re: Happy...

thank you very much Marc!
...I have these stages of progressive happiness throughout a climb...
-while on a climb, getting to top would make me happy
-while on top, a safe/painless descent would make me happy
-at base, easy hike out and sitting in a car seems like it would hit the spot
-then beer/dinner desires
-...etc etc heheheh :)
...I guess this was "stage 2" happiness
