As I return to my desk job in Ohio, just this quick note to tell you again how much I enjoyed climbing Hallet’s with you last Monday. I was pretty awestruck by the mountain, and by your obvious expertise! I would surely enjoy climbing with you again and will take your suggestion to ask for you next time I’m climbing in Colorado – which I hope will be next summer, if not before. Thanks so much, wish I were still in RMNP!
