Route Climbed: Route 73 Trailhead Date Climbed: January 2nd, 2003
We got a late start and ended up racing the sun. If we had not just done the climb spur of the moment, we would have read that it was almost always a 2 day hike in winter. Not knowing this, and being young and macho, we left around 11 am and raced to the top and got back to 73 with our headlamps glaring around 10pm. Fun hike. Very steep and never ending.
