a walk thru the alps day 8: punishing

Day 8: Golderli to Kandersteg
Distance: far
Elevation: Really, really, really steep. More elevation gain than last year’s Whitney climb
Eats: the usual, including a Nutela packet licked out clean

Today’s climb was brutal. Punishing. Crazy. Steeper than steep. I’ll let everyone speak in their own words:

“I cried on the side of the cliff and random French people saved me.” Courtney

“I have calves larger than Arnold Schwarzenegger now.” Katy

“I got to know my bronchial tubes for the first time.” Kim
