Hey M9 hows things ...
Yeah have been in far worse places many times whilst scrambling, soloing, and on the odd climb.. Shai Hulud was certainly a great experience.. one of those “gear will be fine if you don’t fall” type of things, and all gear is 50/50 in it either comes out or it stays in, and I’ve not had much hear pull out and course concern before plus I just thought it felt right, so ‘right’ in fact that I sandbagged myself into it on this public forum.. I felt no pressure because of that, no reason to not do it ... I’d semi -figured death might be more likely in case of a fall , but really didn’t consider it seriously as I knew I could climb that grade, and could onsight that in the mountains, even though it was completely different rock which kinda slipped my mind... anyway I knew I could do it somehow even if I had to resort to ‘aid’.... 😧

No epiphanies.. conscious whole time till Ambos arrived... did have an interesting metaphysical experience at one point deep in the Ketamine K-Hole when the singular dot that was ‘me’ actually create our reality of the continuum I was in ... I still had some remnants of a rational brain then ... but then the dot that I was , disintegrated and a final thought of ‘am I dying’ disappeared as an almost nothingness scrambled to find con text within a maelstrom of convolution ...

before kinda either blacking out to nothing or coming to out of nothing, trying to focus as my mind thought is that you Luke, my rescuers, and having an impossibility trying to reach out to him ... I was totally drug-farked and probably lashed into the litter at that point but figured I was safe for a while ... I do have a fairly vivid image of deep inhalations of nasal something, probably Fentanyl .. can’t recall whether I passed out or re-entered th cosmos consciousness...

Oops might have got a bit too campfirery there ... but I’m still a bit drugged up ... ideally everything will go fine and I’ll be back on the rock in no time, and with a bit of training, back to sufficient conditions to finish of a few current projects and more ... stay tuned ...
