I really need to start a thread about coffee alternatives, for these impromptu overnights. First time I tried one of those things, to be honest. "Didn't suck." :)

Ibuprofin is a given on any hike, yeah! Heh...

Yep Best TR EVER!! No Bammm is big enough so just pretend this Bammm is big enough! I'm guessing when you guys got to the top you stopped talking to each other & looked in opposite directions, because 2 does not equal solitude...does it? I had to throw a turd into a otherwise perfect TR :)

:lol:

Y'know, we did spend probably half (or more?) the time just gazing off at the scenery in our own directions, soaking it up. I think I have a few distance shots of Peder included, no? It was a lot to take in! And both of us seemed to sense the urgent need to do so, after having made it there for the opportunity. (As I remember, we only had three hours or so "to kill" before heading back down! :D)

We had plenty of chat time on the trek up in the dark, and the slipslide down past all the day scramblers in the morning.
