and Mark make you as safe as one can be in the mountain, though they
make you feel responsible. They make every step totally enjoyable.
How could I have survived three nights at 21,000 feet on Ama Dablam,
or the final 80° ice climbing on Alpamayo, or my frozen fingers
on the East Buttress of Mt. Whitney, without their kindness? And,
from 14,000 to 20,000 feet (and perhaps above) Kathy's cappuccinos
are the best!"
