Danielle: Tad!!! Again ... you can't quite tell, but Tad is sitting on a very precarious edge. He admitted climbing down was a bit freaky ... so you can imagine how close to the edge he is.

Tad: This ledge that I'm reclining on is actually visible in the top right corner of the previous picture. It was a little precarious to climb up onto, because the rock above it is overhanging, so it feels like the rock is pushing you off. Also, the edges of the handholds were knife sharp, so I had to be careful not to cut myself. Oh yeah, and the handholds were loose, too. Not to mention the vertical exposure on the left side of the picture! Quite fun, actually!
