Mango harvest in Mukut.
The thunderstorm we went through that night was probably one of our more memorable climbing experiences – right up there with the hiker nearly taking us out on Prodigal Sun, St. Peters Dome climb, Dihedral Wall waterfall hosing and the runout nightmares of Stone Mountain . The lightning and thunder subsided just before dawn but the rain remained steady interrupted only by moments of downpours. We were soaked, cold and tired and saw little hope for clearing weather. We grabbed the wettest stuff (fly & sleeping bags), secured the rest as best as we could in the haul bag, and went down leaving two ropes fixed in place. Much of the hike down to the village was spent sliding on our asses through the wet and muddy jungle. Once there we learned that the storm also made quite the impression on Tam’s guests down in the resort. The rain in the village subsided around noon but the spires remained socked in and out of view. The following day was spent drying out stuff under a cloudy but improving sky.
