I can feel the white hot sizzling.
Smell the scent of melting gear and charring flesh.
Nowhere to hide. And when the sun goes sets, it's going to get real cool.

That's about spot on, Phil. I know you've been there, done that!

A picture my mom took from the south rim of me and Frosty on a failed attempt of The Dragon Route on the Painted Wall. I believe we were hiding from the sun behind the portaledge, visible near the center, when she took this shot. '89.
