OK, so I know this is somewhat lame, but I have accepted that I need to take a break from climbing due to my tendonitis, so in the meantime I started counting the stairs on the stairmaster.

Here's the question: How many stairs are there from the parking lot to the carriage road? Any steps under 5 inches I didn't count and there are a few steps down on the way up that I didn't count. The answer is somewhat subjective (after all what exactly is a stair?) but I got two answers that were +/-4 steps from one another, once going up, once going down.

Post your guesses (or your own personal count) and win nothing but the satisfaction that you are indeed good at estimating. I will post my count in a few days.

OK, well my count was 225, but like I said, I didn't count every little step, just the big ones (including the wooden stairs)

For RR:
Chamonix...
around the time I snapped this photo, three people in wingsuits went zooming by below us.

Well you should take advantage of your current Gimp status to write up a full trip report. Lord knows I haven't had the mojo to do the same.
