Tecuya Moutain Ridge Road was closed for the winter (even though there is currently no snow anywhere in the area) so I followed the cross country route taken by Bob Burd to get up to the road. This was my last peak of the day after Caliente, Peak, & McPherson making for a long day with lots of driving.
Nice hike from Eagle Rest Peak wtih Augie (Mountain Impulse). The fun started during the cross-country descent of the west ridge. As a result of the heavy brush, I led the group into a southwest chute that required some cl.3 downclimbing, something that the third member in our group didn't have experience with.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
