10:49am: They made it to the top of the Smoke Stack but the worst is to come. The lady
Pictured here decided she cannot continue and you will see why in the next few pictures
11:06am: It was very intense to drop down the 15-20 ft. rock face. Those down below me helped guide me as to where to place my feet and hands as it was hard to see
11:26am: View of the group that decided to head back. It was upsetting to see how close the lady was but decided she wasn't ready to drop down the rock face
11:30am: I cannot blame her. The other option was to drop down from here and scoot around and then climb up the gravel face to the snow bridge. On the way back from the summit Johnny and I went that route. Didn't feel I could climb to the top of the Chimney.
