Justin, why don't I mail it to you and you can put it up (it's pictures and text mixed in 2 files, a docx and a pdf), I'm sure you'll bring it into the right file format and layout).

Hey Brent

Thanks again for an awesome day out on Exposure last Sunday! :thumleft: Definitely the hardest day out I've had. The climb was great but not the toughest part (it helps to have someone with you who's done the route before to tell you what you're aiming for - saves loads of time). It was the pretty Big walk out after 5hrs of climbing and it was cooking. And Vander, I saw your post a bit higher up. Brent definitely had his game face on! Don't believe the story that he was is walking unfit. :wink:

All in all an awesome day out, great views, great climbing and a great country climb. A must do! :)

Cheers
J

Nice :thumleft: Glad to hear you guys had a blast. Ja, for a guy who finishes the Cape Epic and Amarider in pretty good time, unfit is a VERY relative term...
