The Views Are Worth The Effort Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2014
Thanks to the Independence Day holiday weekend, this was my fourth straight day of peakbagging. However, this trip probably had more elevation gain than those other previous trips put together. Good views from the top; I need to go back for Big Jim.
After saying goodbye to Greg and Don I traversed the ridge over to Big Jim and then set my bivy sack in the snow near Lake Augusta. My thermometer read 22 degrees during the night and the wind chill overpowered my 17 degree sleeping bag.
