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
|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.

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