My flash go on Sparkle at The Bog of Poudre Canyon. The screaming is an indication of breaking through self-imposed mental barriers, not of physical discomfort.
Once I got established on the arete, I had to make a decision whether to follow the path of least resistance or a mental construct of the line (the arete). Since I was alone relatively far from my car in a talus field, I choose the path of the least resistance.
Is it a valid ascent? I don't know.
I know it was fun.
