Joined Sam Phillips for a run at El Cap. We went at it "as if. .". We'd make the top, AND both psyched to call it quits if we didn't " feel it" when we rolled out of bed, exiting the car in the smoked filled valley, at the base or on any pitch. No stress, just go until it's not wonderful.
We ended up making a Dolt Run, which means we climbed 8 pitches - given how we linked them.
