On the 4th pitch of the classic climb, The Nutcracker, found on Manure Pile in Yosemite National Park I laughed to myself as I snapped this image. I had met this German traveler the night before in Camp 4, we shared some food, and planned to climb together the next PM. Without knowing more than we both were in Yosemite to climb, we trusted the “brotherhood of the rope” and headed into this climb a little sunburnt, thirsty, and a tad hungry. Thank you Oscar for the climb!
