the resurrection

What do Everest Summiteers do when they don't work?  Well, they climb ...

Photo 1: some would think that Adele is dwarfed by the size of the face, but Adele is really that size in real life.

Photo 2: you are looking at a piece of gear, something that was lacking during this climb with the exception of the first pitch.

Photo 3: the normal run out - a 60m rope seems to be never ending when you are tied into the end of it.

Photo 4: more excellent run outs.

So today, we used screws, pegs, warthogs, nuts, friends, nuts and offsets.  With the exception of the first pitch, none were used as running belays.  Basically, you didn't want to fall.
