Just summitted Hilton the day before so I was a little wiped out. Took NW ridge from Old Caribou lks trail. Lots of ups and downs on ridge towers. Then dropped down steep rock gully to N face snow slopes. Easy snow and scramble to summit from there. Great view of white Trinities, and lots of snow this year. Took snow slopes down N face then XC through trees and slabs back up to old caribou trail at about 7,000 ft. Bathed in creek crossing near trailhead. Great views, wild envirnoment, very isolated. Nice!
Technical and non-Technical Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2001
Summitted via two routes. One was a moderate scramble (class 4) from Caribou lake. The other, while not to the summit of Caribou itself, climbed a wonderful granite dome towering above Josephine Lake with Captain Insane-o. Some of the best climbing I've ever experienced.
"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."
