I hope I'm stronger when this is over. I did not sag the climb. Done in by headwind, sleep-deprivation, heat, hunger and saddle sores. iPhone died before summit, but Cyclemeter recorded my whole 77 miles. Ran out of food I carried by summit, most vendor food I could eat at summit sold out by the time I got there. Two more hard climbs, and then I get my real bed back.
