Hiked into Borrego Palm Canyon for about 3 miles and the accessed a ridge leading to the west ridge. Beautiful scenery and challenging route. Mostly x-country with lots of class 2 and a few class 3 near the summit.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
