Impressive job to do all 4 in a day. Pictures of that area look awesome, I need to make the trip there soon!

Thanks... It was my primary goal to get all (4). If I go back, I want to do it because I want to enjoy the basin, and not having a ”list” hanging over my head...

thanks for the trip report
it brought me back to the same feelings I had on the Eolus face and Sunlight summit block 15 yrs ago.
e.g. ” Touching the top point with your belly counts just as much as standing or sitting on it.”, ”I stretched, and stretched. I still didn't reach. I was inches away. So, I made a sort of “butt scoot of faith.””
I had my teenage son and nephew with me to add to the ”excitement”.

So I am now down to just a couple tough one. Since you and I are kindred spirits in terms of the experience of risk then I'd like your take on Pyramid vs Mt Wilson in risk comparison to say the Eolus face.
