Congrats?

Obviously, such goal-oriented activity is inconsistent with an adequate dose of Psilocybe Species

Surely it was high-dose caffeine.

Quick! Spot how many things are wrong with this scene. Can you find them all?

At least the clove-hitch to the "master point" is tied properly. They were doing "big things" after all.

Edit: I just noticed, is that a web-o-lette in that charlie-foxtrot of an anchor?

The clove hitch is correct, but then she clipped her locker into a non-locker on a single piece instead of their non-existent master point. Looks like a web-o-lette to me.

Just a heads up, don't confuse the chick with CF anchor in the photo with the one who wigged out on mushrooms, 2 unrelated events.

The one in the photos were already beaten to death on Mountain Project http://www.mountainproject.com/v/-/108238413__1

It was completed with someone reporting that they passed the party on the way in and warned them about the weather but the chick in the photo joked "Don't worry, I have Rocky Mountain Rescue on speed dial". That part is internet hearsay but its all entertaining none the less.

Well, to be honest, the one time I started up a peak on shrooms (Lincoln, IIRC), I ended up just sitting down and grooving on the scenery well short of the summit. On LSD, OTOH, I usually wanted to be physically active.

Yeah, but with my complexion, I would need a couple of bottles of sunscreen, and a partner to put it on the part of my back that I can't reach, to avoid ending up red, blistery and painful all over. It's simpler and more effective (and avoids traumatizing others on the route) to wear some clothes.
