as Stephen and I really started getting into a pocket, guess who
pulls up from down below us but Steve Brancato and Kevin Dixon!
Steve came to see if we wanted to go to Mount Antero with
him. But, dawg gone it, we were in a Topaz pocket now and
here is where we would stay. Kevin made it up in about an
hour and started helping us with the pocket. It soon got dark
and then started raining... But, there we stayed, taking turns
digging our rich pocket with flashlights on the side of the cold,
wet mountain. At about 10pm, it started hailing,
which "hailed" to us to get the hell out of there!
