Family tradition held that Great-great (or something like that) Granddaddy Reynolds had conquered the east cliff-face in a mere six hours back in 1887. It was quite a matter of pride on Mom’s side of the family. But now Sammy was a little less impressed. The view was pretty spectacular at the top, but he didn’t think too much of the family “record.” After all he just got to the top in five minutes. So what was the big fuss about? Sammy was pretty sure he’d never understand grown-ups.
