Our aim was at least Irvine today, but we got a very late start and then my partners sort of ran out of gas after we got to the top of the chute. The beginning of the chute was unpleasant scree but once we got to the snow and rock, things picked as far as enjoyability goes. Will go back to climb Irvine. The peak certainly looked impressive from our camp at Camp Lake.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
