Ok, so this one was insane! The first half was steady up, up, up and then when you got to the saddle, you went around a corner and there were the cables (I started to say “the dreaded cables” but trust me-they are your friend. At the first set, that you had to hang on to to go DOWN, Michael asked, “Are you going to be able to do this?” He knows that I am TERRIFIED of heights. I replied, “I don't know” Honestly, it looked more than a little scary. He followed up with,” I guess what I am asking, is are you going to be able to come back UP?” Little did we know, that as terrifying as this looked, it was probable one of the milder sets we were getting ready to hit. That being said, “I DID IT!!”  Several sets of cables and we made it to the top! And coming back wasn't quite as scary, well, except for that one spot where I was hanging to to the cables (with everything I had) and my feet slipped on loose gravel and if I hadn't been hanging on, I would have just kinda flew off the ledge-thank GOD, for a husband who badgered me enough to make me start weight training. This one worked out my arms, core and every square inch of my legs! 4 down-2 to go! #6packofpeak
