And so you come back safe and sound (that's the most important thing but also you have some great pictures and a great story to tell your kids, grandkids, anyone who will listen. I'm not sure what you can do with the pictures over the years, but be very sure that the yarn gets better and better. BTW: At one point when we were on tour in Tanzania we were joined by a group that had just completed a climb of Kilimanjaro where they had been caught by a sudden snowstorm. They were prepared (you must be), but it made for very difficult and uncomfortable hiking. They were both exhausted and animated.
I imagine after a few years the yarn will be that I walked for like a week or something, while dealing with a lot of bears trying to get us while at it

That's not a problem, I have a lot of stories ) When I was a bit younger I was kinda reckless, so most of the time when hiking I settled for impossible track times and of course ended up hiking at night all the time. Truth to be told, I was mostly worried for my teammate since it was only her 4th serious track.

And... just as I write, I signed up for climbing at night next week. Somebody asked and I couldn't say no This time it's gonna be technical climbing not hiking, but I've never done any climbing without a rope so it should be totally safe. I'm not sure I can carry the camera with me though. Maybe I will try to get it along with the DFA 50 1.4 or a small lens like the FA 43 or FA 77. One thing is for sure, never carrying the DFA 70-200 ever again My hands get pumped out too quickly. Still, I will watch "Free Solo" tonight just for the kicks I've never been a real rock climber, more like a hiker who does some climbing since I have a lot of friends that do... but every once in a while, everybody likes to imagine that they are Alex Honnold...albeit with the rope on

Anyway, here are rest of the picks. I didn't take any pictures after the sunset since I was kinda in a hurry.

You definitely brought back images worth seeing. For a while my son, not an adventurer, had a friend who was what I think is called a "free climber." He'd jump and latch unto a molding up near the ceiling with his finger tips, then work his way around the room holding on that way. I'd be hesitant to shake his hand.

Just to point this out, there is some confusion between "free climbing" and "free soloing". Free climbing means that you're using climbing equipment (such as ropes) only to protect yourself against falling, but not to assist progress in any way. You're doing everything on your own but if you fall you're protected. Free soloing is like free climbing expect that you have no rope or any safety gear, just your shoes and chalk. It is considered "a niche of a niche", reserved for the sport's elite. I have never attempted any free solo (well except for maybe couple meters heights), nor am I going to. Some of the world's very best climbers (like Adam Ondra) have never attempted free solo (not as far as I know). Maybe it's physically possible, but the mental component of it it's insurmountable for the most,

However, Alex Honnold managed to free solo El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, in 2017. I consider it to be the greatest sport achievement in the history of mankind. I really can't think of anything that compares. Maybe it's like trying to get the Gold at the Olympics, and if you don't do it, you die, but even that seems putting it too short. For people that don't know much about climbing, it's hard to understand how amazing this really is. Before him, it's not like somebody tried it and failed. Nobody even considered it because it just seems impossible... and it still does. If you're interested, there is a Oscar winning documentary from 2018 describing it all ("Free Solo").

+1 on that. The buildings are sufficiently disorienting, but the fish-eye effect makes them other worldly.
