I suppose the culmination of your dream also means the end of it. So much effort, for so long and then suddenly... it's all over. A sense of unreality. Your subconscious screaming at you to get the f*ck out of it as fast as possible. A sense of, "Was it worth it?" Thoughts of those you've left behind. There must be such a maelstrom of emotions, many of them conflicting.
Agree, it looks like a big effort in a very serious environment indeed. Glad they got up and got back safely.

Well ok. I typed it quickly - definately is a bugbear of mine. I saw the pics on the article, and others, on Andy's twitter feed a day or two ago. It's an impressive route and achievement.
I was trying to to find if Andy had said any more on his blog (he hasn't). I found the comments about Jonas interesting, especially as he ties it into Jonas being a soloist. Andy is perhaps best known to many for the solo ascent of Reticent Wall he details in psychovertival, so maybe it was a case of two soloists rubbing against one another?
