Answer:  WEIGHT UP

(Kind of a stinky double pun!  The *designed* pun is that the others have to wait for him.  But also, he is below them, and he still has to climb up to them.  Gotta love it!

Today’s clue words aren’t all super regular, but we have seen them all before.  However, all of their jumbles appear to be new.  Kind of ironic that one of today’s clue words was an aspect of yesterday’s cartoon.  For those of you with short memories, or who did not do yesterday’s Jumble, that would be “gopher”.  As in yesterday’s golf club head cover.  The answer letter layout was a well thought out eight letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it in my book.

Great mountain scene, hiking cartoon!  Not some gentle, rolling hill kind of mountains, but some craggy looking tors.  I wonder if any of their yells are resulting in echoes?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    High climbing Hikers are like a special kind of GUILD. Some paths they take are small in WIDTH and offer a FIERCE challenge too their safety!^

    Our one Hiker in today’s Jumble, that put on some weight since his last endeavor,
    embarrassed himself. He felt like a GOPHER
    trying to dig/hide in one of the various crevices on the current trail. He was fortunate
    his fellow Mates on this journey were willing
    to give him some leewayyyy《♡♡•••…》

    If your outside this weekend with Mother Nature appreciate^/enjoy^^ your time…*

    Cute pun. Ironic that this puzzle runs today, near the end of this year’s Everest climbing season, which has now claimed the lives of 10 people and counting at my posting, in nearly all cases because the doomed climbers had to WEIGHT additional hours to descend with too many other climbers trying to get through chokepoints simultaneously. They have been stuck in Everest’s death zone, where the elevation is so high and the oxygen so thin that humans cannot survive longer than short term. Not having enough supplemental oxygen to tide them through the delays is another factor.

    “Because it’s there!” never really worked for me, David. At least not for dangerous things like that. The highest point I’ve ever been on was Pike’s Peak, in Colorado. And, with that I rode a cog train to get there. — YUR
