Moroni visits the Palisades

Middle Palisade, Sierra Nevada

A climbing mishap on the North Palisade glacier thirty years ago contributed to this story. It turns out the crawling headfirst into a crevasse, even in pursuit of expensive sunglasses, is a bad idea.  The actual adventure ended in laughs all around, but possible consequences have haunted me ever since. I’ve elaborated on them in Moroni.
