touching the void annotation

The passage shows the use of many different feelings and senses, for example, when the narrator says that "Simon is some distance ahead", he is using the sense of vision. later in the text, there is a feeling of awe as they reach the peak of the mountain and look around them. the mood quickly switches to foreboding, as they mention the fact that they have no way to be rescued, and are completely alone, which is also an example of foreshadowing, for when Simon breaks his leg later.this mention of complete isolation is a huge change in mood from the relaxing, calm mood that was in the passage earlier. The relaxed mood is shown by the author using phrases like "I was no longer concerned about speed or fitness since we were pretty evenly matched.", and "I was not in a hurry". The rest of the passage is using the sense of vision to describe how beautiful and intimidating the horizon looks from the peak that they just climbed.
