Shouldn't they remember their feat and forget about their feet?

Geez.... Thats a bit of a shock for someone who's been on a wall or in a cave for 6 weeks.

We would have loved nothing more than to kick those pigs off but they would almost certainly have been
lost down a crevasse. Shame, I was looking forward to seeing them suffer for once.

great trip report- glad you enjoyed patagonia. your feet will be fine in a couple of weeks. sore feet like that can be pretty common after that kind af abuse. rock shoes arent too comfy for a couple of weeks though.

A grand adventure.
Many thanks for sharing it with us Lee C, & Jake.

>To us this route stands in the world of climbing as a definition of vision. It stands as the epitome of what climbers can achieve when they forget the preconceived idea’s of others and allow themselves to dream.

Were your thoughts/ideals of the 'visionaryness' of the original ascentionists met? ie did the route (& location), meet or exceed your expectations in terms of how you thought of them/it prior to your achieving the same objective?

Their blog says it's the final chapter but doesn't fill in the gory details of the feet. Am I the only one that's curious?

here is the reason from blog
"The effect that 2 weeks of continuous vague coldness followed by 5 days of heavy load carrying had
on our feet is one we certainly didn't expect."

makes feet swell and bruise more easily.

Just read this again, a great TR.

I mildly froze both feet 3 years ago, burn't like hell for a couple of weeks and ever since I've been far more susceptible to cold: tingly feelings in the toes, burning sensations, easily encounter chillblanes (?), etc. Anyone know if Lee and Jake's feet recovered fairly quickly or is it still going?

Hi Rod,
Not sure about how lee's feet are going. But since I have been back I had a few trips to the Hyperbaric chamber doctor to test oxygen levels in my toes and get advice. At the moment my right foot is still a little cold and squeezing it into a tight climbing shoes is not doing it any favours. But all in all they are warming up well and it was so worth it, but next time I will tell lee to bring more then ONE pair of socks up the wall! and take some diffferent wall shoes up!!
