I love that the girl is reading a book.

"So, what did you do this weekend?"

The book was probably "How To Climb Down".

There is no climbing down from that; one way out- Up.

Likely that was on the west face of El Capitan; an elite few can do it in a day, most take 2-5 days, one person (alex honnold) has climbed it without ropes... I love this shite

That photo was shot on the rather famous El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Its about 3k feet of vertical granite, with 2-3 major routes up. With a pair of binoculars you can watch the climbers during the day (especially in the summer) and often see their lamps at night. It usually takes several days to scale the surface, depending upon one's strength and what kind of assist one is using, so sleeping on the surface is common.

If you ever see ME on the side of a mountain, rest assured there is a wrecked car or airplane or helicopter nearby!

There is a lot of traffic up the face of El Cap in the summer, and as a rule, climbers are helpful to each other while on a pitch. I don't know if this helpfulness extends to letting someone borrow your girlfriend, or your bed.
