Congratulation! What an epic.

Even I had hiked down with daylight, I still can't imagine trying to get down in the dark light that.

All is well. Family life kept me away from real rock. Hope to see you on the Nose.

You asked if the trip was a success or not, and I'd say yeah. You guys pushed it and that's great. Another good read as always.

Dan - Great read. I'm sure the experience will contribute to your sucess on the next try. When I was there last Sept, I only have 5.5 days in the Valley so we ended up doing Half-Dome and the Prow on Washignton Column. The Nose would have been nice but I have an excuse (with the wife) to go back there again.

BTW, please don't dump the excess water out. Just leave it there, someone will use them.
