We start the descent, following the ridge line.

Inexperienced hikers assume that descent is easier than ascent. True in the sense of having gravity work in your favor. False in terms of muscles and tendons, that now have to function as brakes. Very, very fatigued brakes. We have hours of descent ahead of us.
