Let me put it this way, I was vertically hanging from a hill or as a flatlander from southern sweden would call it a "mountain".
I was only 300 yards from my buddy but couldn't reach him.
I was observing the mouth of Panther.
I will make it another time, but this time I will follow my friends advice on staying on top of the hill.
At least I can laugh at myself.
I'll be back as they say.
