Obsession is close kin to determination. For one man, an alien peak seems just another obstacle capable of being conquered with the right set of tools. But any climber will tell you — you don’t want to look back the way you came.

    Um… is the downloadable file supposed to be only 1.4 MB and a couple of minutes long? It seemed to promise a story, but then it just ended while the music was playing. I wondered if I hadn’t been paying attention, and thought that it might’ve been a promo, but when I listened again I got the same impression – that there was supposed to be a story there.

    We are checking into it right now. Sorry about the inconvenience. Thanks for letting us know.

    OK, it should be working now. I hope you enjoy the story.

    Thank you! I did enjoy the story, even though the low frequency of the howling wind seemed to be the precise frequency needed to resonate with my particular eardrums in an unpleasant way. And I guess my Koss Sparkplugs helped making that happen as well. But I survived! 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback Gillsing. We appreciate it.

    Just catching up on some podcasts and caught this story on the way to work.

    LOVED IT! Great production job (as usual) but the story really grabbed me. Well done!
