How the heck did Pete do that????
Here we see me (ColdClimb) and bigboulderboarderbinerben on Lumahai Beach, watching the waves smash past our protective rock at chest level, and trying to get the timing down to sprint out onto the jagged lava fast enough to attack the moves before the next wave wipes us off the rock, removing various sections of skin and quite possibly vital organs in the process. The thought going through my mind at the moment was "huh????" I knew it was possible, because I saw passthepitonspete's perfect picture and I could see where he was when his pic was taken, but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how the heck he got there. The guy's either totally insane, or he's got tons of guts, to battle the waves first, then face wet, slippery rock and a dangerous landing. Either way, he's a better climber than I am, because I never made it as high as he did, even after escaping the grasping fingers of the waves and wrapping both arms around huge chunks of wet rock in order to get off the ground. You've got guts, Pete.
