The Definition of living on the edge.

This is always the first mountain/ face that i look at when entering Salt Lake City, Utah.  This climb i will never forget. Half way up this west slab looking down you have over a thousand foot drop.  There were occasional ledges of about a foot where you could stop, rest and just breathe (and take photos).  These are the moments that are surreal.  Knowing you got to keep going up and being composed and focused or the result could be death.  There were times were you had to make a couple leaps of faith.  Trusting your foot holds, trusting your hand holds, and hoping to find the next move.
