Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: March 12, 2005
This climb involved a lot of scrambling through forested area. That means that as I was pushing forward, the trees were snagging my pack, my face, and my arms trying to hold me back. This climb is more a test of patience than endurance.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
