Yeah, so we sent it - Chris led the A5 death pitch, thank goodness. I had "won" the pitch in paper-rock-scissors [I knew they'd both throw 'rock'] but bailed after taking a thirty-foot upside-down fall when the swage on my Pika head failed. [Pika heads are not recommended by Dr. Piton]
Humar sent it too. Of course. He looks pretty happy here, eh?
The good news is that we all lived to tell the tale. And this is a Very Good Thing, when the tale is about a new wave A5 big wall.
