For a brief moment I thought The Alpinist magazine's editorial team had suddenly got very slack - then i realized it was Simon's own blog with the same name.

i commited to the hook, watching my pecker fall out as i did so. i looked down past all the worthless pro and figured i'd end up somewhere near the sea when this hook blew. a minute passed and i was still there, the stuong gusts meant i couldnt get high on the piece and i dont know how my rocking around didnt dislodge it. i searched manically for the next piece, another shitty hook. about to commit to it i paused, this hook was suicide. there had to be something better. thirty second later i found it, a positive edge to sink my 'talon's into. highstepping up i clipped the bolt of the anchor, mumbling about how im selling my aid gear after this. it still staggers me that i didnt take the plunge.

Good stuff and I enjoyed reading it.

... Isn't it a great feeling/massive relief, to find something positive amongst a sea of worthlessness when out at the sketchy end!

Congratulations on the first solo ascent of the Tote.

well that whole side is eastfacing, the ridge runs down the middle, so technically it faces se but i spose it differs from the NE ridge close by, which is much larger...

its right when u go climbers east.... huh?!? ;)
