Half Dome

A story of two climbers doing the Regular Northwest Face route on Half Dome. Quite a story of how they imagewere slowed up by other groups, passed by Alex Honnold and then met Royal Robbins (the first ascensionist) eating lunch in a hotel at Yosemite.

I liked this quote:

“After getting settled in it only took a few minutes to string some glow stick party lights through the anchor system for ambiance. A couple of stogies were fired up and we reflected on how great this spot was compared to one of the pay campsites far below in the valley. Soon the cigar smoke began to mask the dried urine stank that had accumulated here during the climbing season.”
