If you don't mind waiting a week or two for me to finish it (I don't read regularly enough to just plow through it), I'll mail it to you along with this one about the Adirondacks..

After reading the article you linked here, "shortcut" sounds chilling. The bit about "if it was safe and shorter, it would be the main route" says a lot.

I'm always afraid to take pictures of difficult parts. I'm a bit superstitious. Outbound, it feels like I'm going to be found dead at the bottom and the article written about me will say "his last act was to photograph the section that killed him, probably to share on social media." And on the return, it's behind me and quickly out of my mind.

I can definitely wait, and would be happy to take you up on that offer! Unrelated, but have you seen Meru?

I haven't! It's worth seeing?

100% yes. Amazing film, you'll love it.
