Comments: I had the displeasure of climbing this route when I took a few pills from my little 1st aid kit for the headache I had from drinking too much Scotch the night before at the base of the first pitch of Scenic Cruise. After it took me almost an hour to follow pitch 4, I realized I had taken 4 tylenol PMs instead of ibuprofen.

After being so tuckered out from topping out on my first big Black Canyon route, I slept in the back of my truck for the next 20 hours.

Sorry 'bout that, Nick.

Good training for those sandbagged alpine finishes, otherwise horrible training for confidence. Tick fever felt a lot easier after this one! Regardless, thank you for takin... more >>
