Return to the Challenge - July 25, 1999 - Day 7

July 25, 1999 - Day 7

Mark and Mike got an early start at 7:30 this morning and pressed hard until 6:00pm, making camp another 300 feet higher and 300 feet sideways across the wall. With one bolt ladder, two pendulums and three tough pitches of hauling completed, the men are positioned for faster climbing from here to the top.

Mark is enjoying the climb so much, he's lost his appetite. Mike is eating like an entire troop of Boy Scouts. Both men are enjoying the climb so much, they report breaking into laughter for no reason at all.

Of course, once the laughter is finished it's time to return to the endless chain of laborious climbing, cleaning and hauling.

Tomorrow, The Great Roof.
