Hiked the rige over from China Cap with Flanders, very fun. Love granite, especially in Oregon where it is so rare. Found a way to scramble up to the basalt ridge and hike to the summit. Took a gully down the north side and went cross country skirting the avalanche field back to the trail. Bunch of flying bugs swarming the summit.
I left Buck Creek Trailhead at 5AM and followed trail #1944 to Burger Pass. Then I made my way up the northeast ridge to the summit, arriving at 7:15AM. I then decinded the west ridge and got back to the Trailhead at 8:30AM.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
