Just as an aside...

Being held in Virgin, Utah. Been through it a few times on way to Zion.

Virgin is one of a few places in US where the is a mandatory requirement for a household to own a firearm!

I saw alot of the live coverage on Sunday but you just don't get an appreciation for the steepness of the terrain that the head cam shots give you. Truely amazing stuff and you can hear him at the moment he realises he isn't going to make it.

Ouch!
