Actually it is not a rope required trip...my friends were fantastic. I could not ask for better and experienced people..the fear of heights was my issue, not theirs. 8 yrs ago I would have freaked out doing Tricouni, which now I look at and have done twice and find it relatively straight forward. A bit challenging, but OK for me. I chose to go on the trip, knowing what the technicality was, and I knew I could wait at the crux if I was not happy. But I chose to move upward, which was alright for me..I didn't expect to look down and freak out. I don't think anyone expected that.
I look forward to the day I could do trips like some of the people in our group. This trip to me was the taste I needed to push me further ahead in my skills. We all have to start somewhere. And this too me was my start, as in the big picture, it is considered fairly moderate for most with much experience...
