Wadi Rum

A very long time ago we improvised a climbing trip to Wadi Rum. With only a few friends & nuts in our toolkit (I was just out of college and broke as a joke), we managed to send a few classics, trading exposure for the skills and hardware we did not have. A freezing night under the stars on top of Wadi Rum, after an epic send of the Pillar of Wisdom (still unequipped back then) has remained one of my best memories.

To this day I sometimes close my eyes and get transported to this happy place and time, smell the Juniper trees and see the stars in the cold still night.
