Things and Schemes

My name's Will. I'm a grad student, whiskey-drinker, and art collector with a love of all things pop culture. I spend my days reading books, making tea, and contemplating the universe. I spend my nights fighting crime, taking bubble baths, and reading poetry. I like cats, stairwells, and hip bones. This is my corner of the Internet. If you must know more. I look like this. I dabble in photography.


My back is to the cliff wall and below is a sheer drop. It is part of the route to the top and has to be traversed by all climbers of Half Dome, with or without rope. Some climbers wade down and edge themselves across with their arms along the ledge. Some climbers sit on their backsides and edge themselves across that way.
I felt though, that walking across it was cooler. It is around a foot wide at the start, but narrows to six inches by the end. By the end, the cliff wall bows out and pushes your back forwards so that you are literally peering over the sheer drop.
