Greg and I hiked up snow through Willow Creek valley and went up the ridge to the base of the summit area at the saddle between it and Willow Tooth. I led up the rappel route and forced my way up the summit slab without a shoulder stand. Dumb friction move was wet and covered with lichen. Views were great though...rapped the summit slab, tagged Willow Tooth and we hiked out with an awesome glissade! Lots of snow still around
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
