The plan was to go big or go home.  Our first objective for the trip was the northeast face of Pingora Peak.  John and Jeff did all the heavy lifting and lion's share of the leading.  They let me take the sharp end on a couple of easier pitches.  It's nice to have friends that can guide you on the hard climbs.
