TODD: Oh yeah, you want to avoid that, you know at all costs, people want to avoid that type of situation. It's just not something that you want to think about.
DeMaris: Pretty much peace of mind. They provide a highly experienced guide to take you up. They give you a list of everything you'll need and what to expect to get you prepared. They offer rental equipment if you don't want to spend a fortune on climbing equipment that you'll only use once. The day before the climb we'll go through orientation and a safety class to get us ready. I'm renting some high quality climbing pants, an ice axe, climbing boots and a helmet.
