The Top of El Capitan in Our Time

ACT I

Yvon Chouinard, Tom Frost, TM Herbert, Chuck Pratt, Royal Robbins and Steve Roper are holding hands and standing in a circle. It is dusk. The group, obviously in "high" spirits, dances and spins. Finally, utterly spent, they collapse and break into mock chorus:

We the dead-end kids
In this game
Did make our bids
For enviable fame!

But O mournful fate
Does proclaim
The adventurous state
Is on the wane!

On the wane!
