Th’ Gaussling just received this photo of his good friend Paul on the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This is a real accomplishment and my hat is off to him.  Paul is a tenured perfesser of chemistry and is accustomed to slogging up endless slopes in the rarified air.  We overlap in our fascination with asymmetric lactam enolate alkylations and pyridazine chemistry.
