Thanks for the comment. Most people use gloves on the cables, and they make it much easier going down. Leather is a little slippery for going up, but great for controlled sliding going down. Rubberized gloves give better traction up, but are not good for down. There is usually a pile of gloves at the base of the cables, if you don't bring your own. After several trips, I now use bare hands up, and leather gloves down.

Beautiful and inspiring. Thank you for posting. BTW - were gloves helpful on cables? I would not thought to have brought them. Maybe a quick trip to REI before I leave for my own few days in paradise...
