I found this quote rather entertaining:

“In the last couple hundred feet I ran into some climbing parties. I’m sure they were like, What the f***!? They’d been up there for four or five days. I stopped and chatted with them for a bit. Also, honestly, my arms were getting a little tired. So I shared some of my Goldfish with this chick on belay.”
