    TNB: The Only Blasphemy
    John Bachar laces up his boots and cinches the sling on his chalk bag. “Ready?” Only then do I realize he means to climb all two thousand feet solo, without a rope. To save face, I agree, thinking: Well, if he suggests something too crazy, I’ll just draw the line. I was the first to start soloing out at Josh anyhow.
    Cliff Notes: Moe's Saved!

    Alex and Thomas Huber Climb in Queen Maud Land
