I am keeping so busy I cant quite write this up the way it deserves to be remembered... So just putting this here to place save...
I have a few pics/ triplog to post later. Juliachaos' triplog about covers it... WOW. Except our area was overhung but not as wind resistant as a cave, and how little we actually had to stay warm:
Both with wet hair, in wet shorts, wet shoes and socks, for 2 of us we only had 1 rain coat, 1 beanie and face cover, 1 pair leather gloves. I had to remove my wet upper clothes but thankfully had put a shear long sleeved shirt in my dry bag, I had my lighter but everything was wet... tried to start a tiny fire on the rock to dry my clothes but it was too wet (my almonds burned for a bit...)
Lesson 1: wear zip off pants made from a quick drying material, Bring all items listed above wrapped in rain coat to stay dry (one for each person), bring small travel sized bottle of whiskey.
Lesson 2: Bailing mid motherload from that side is a lot harder than finishing (more strenuous, more time, and more route scheming)
Lesson 3: If you must survive this, make sure you do it with a great friend! Liz, I couldn't imagine sharing this experience with anyone one else, you're an amazing person and a great friend.
