Thanks a lot! The whole day was a huge lesson in commitment and alpine style climbing. We drove up there as a group of four, and soon realized that Josh forgot our rack and second rope. Our friends let us rob them of a few cams and hexes and about 1/2 set of stoppers. In the morning we started climbing with this skimpy rack and one rope, with Dave and Kishen climbing below us (with a standard rack and two ropes). Our thoughts were that we could bail with them if needed, but we were soon far above them on the route, simply because our light weight allowed us to move so much faster. When the clouds and thunder started coming in, they decided to bail, but we were at least 600 feet above them by then, and figured our best option was up and over. It was definitely scary, but it paid off and taught me a lot about light and fast alpine climbing, and that sometimes speed can provide safety.
