The climbing was beautiful and intricate, but I was happiest when I saw the boat pull back up – we for sure didn't have enough food to hike back out, and I didn't really know the guy driving the boat at all. It struck me afterwards that we took a bigger gamble on the boat than the climb. Any how, a nice adventure.’
