This is a visually complex looking, large cliff that is made up of multitude of steps and platforms. The goal is to traverse the correct steps , of which there are two or three paths, to make it up or down. The bottom up is an easier traverse as a better, stepped back perspective of the face can be obtained.

Of course, you can always converse with a past traverser, which is allowed and encouraged. They might even give cryptic clues.

This entry has arisen because I am trying to look at coding database simple extra features and are starting to feel that designed complexity isn't there to make stuff easier. I thought I knew the base tenets* of programming but probably, as usual, I have made a fundamental misdefinition somewhere.

       This sounds like an indoor climbing wall, except outdoors and larger. Are the base tenants of programming the ones who rent near the bottom?   

       As for design complexity, the essence of programming is the hiding of complexity; the complexity is always there: the heroic programmer holds it at bay to create a local space where people don't have to worry about it, much as the heroic engineer holds the Second Law of Thermodynamics at bay, temporarily and locally.   

       At least, that's what I tell myself when my head hurts.

       It appears that all science turns back into art again.

       If you have 'made' Miss Definition, then her cover is blown. We'll have to re-deploy her. Shame, as I'm sure she was a good tenant, paid her rent on time, no loud parties like other spies with looser tenets.

       The trick is to start at the top(s).

       Still trying. Thing is I don't want to use the Sikorsky, when a bit of climbing gear should do.
