16 years ago I made my first pilgrimage to Yosemite. This is the first route I climbed there: The Direct North Buttress. An overly relaxed start and me not knowing how to climb offwidths ended in a 24h day.

Finally we reach long ledge bivi. I am in a ditch as wide as my shoulders with a 800m ditch to my right, the haulbag hanging above the void.
