What are you talking about? First off, what is a "non-reversible" route? For anywhere you go as a hiker, you should be able to go back/retrace your steps (at least barring some sort of major disaster), otherwise you shouldn't be hiking without someone who knows what they're doing.Lawrence Crocker wrote:I have been on non-reversible routes (Yosemite, Royal Arches) where I might well not have taken a first drink until after the no return point (a pendulum).
And you're saying that you've hiked more than a day without drinking any water??? Haha.
By the way, it seems in general that you're kind of responding with the aim of us coming to some agreement on things we didn't previously agree on re what to do in various moral and legal situations. Why are you approaching this that way? Figuring that out might save us a lot of time. I gave my opinion, but you don't seem satisfied with it. (Why should my opinion satisfy you anyway? It's my opinion. You likely have a different one.) And one thing that seems weird to me is that you keep talking about what other people think, what's normal (to think), etc. Why do you keep appealing to that?
