Mike getting hosed off on Trunkline. A direct hit from a thunderstorm turned the route into a literal water hose in minutes. We tied two ropes together and did a 300 foot single rope rappel to the base and retrieved our ropes the next day. The storm rocked on for a couple hours after we got back to basecamp where my wife was waiting for us in the tent. She was pretty certain we got cooked on this one.
