this is Eric from ericandlucie.com. Wow! Thanks for the good words. This is indeed living the life!! Glad to see that you are getting something from our site.
Just thought I'd answer some questions:
1. We've had comments about our gray background... I know it doesn't work that well on some displays. Works great on our LCD so we never thought about it. Will be a fair amount of work to change now, so it may be a while.
2. Our ropes on the NR of Stuart: we were carrying two doubles (8.5mm by 60m) on the ridge. See the text in the page for the details but we ended up simulclimbing everything but the gendarme on one of those two ropes, doubled over itself. This is much better for simulclimbing compared to climbing 60m apart. If I was to do the ridge again, I'd take just one 1/2 rope and use it doubled over itself for the entire climb, including the gendarme, as the pitches up it are very short (<30m). With our two ropes, Lucie just ended up carrying the second one on her pack for the entire climb...
