bolt pops, team rescued

The bolt supporting his ledge had popped under the strain, but the anchors of each side caught him. From above, Steve and I stared for a few moments at a wide-eyed Mike, still standing upright in his ledge.


Just re-read this quickly. I had forgotten about it. Dayum John!

If anyone hasn't read it, you owe it to yourself.

Man, Steve told me the whole story.  He said the barrages of snow were terrifying.  The word "Violent" came up a few times.

One of the greates stories out there. 

Thanks for the thread pull Munge!

That was a fantastic story. A truly great epic (using great in the worst possible way I believe). I hope I never have an epic that bad.
