Yosemite Valley, USA (May 1981)
Overnighting near the top of the South Face of Washington Column. Why was I (far side) not happy? Axel Beffert, foreground, got off route on final pitch and wanted to climb a grotty gully in the dark. Victor Kramer was the third person on the climb - he and I made an executive decision to tie into the lone tree on the top part of the route for an uncomfortable night.
