This guy's friends climbed up before him, and left no protection on the follow (he was the fourth person up) up the fin that is Montezuma's Tower in the Garden of the Gods. We warned him that there was a good chance that if he slipped off he would die. Literally. We asked his friends if they were going to come back and protect the route, but they said he'd be fine. He still decided to climb, because "My friends already went up, I have to now." What you don't see is the large boulder just down and to the right that he would have hit had he fallen. Way to go guy. You proved you're macho and dumb.
