For us, the crux was getting up the gumption to hike out the approach trail after the Park Bear Patrol warned us about the sighting of mama griz and 2 cubs that morning. Worthwhile climb for the incredible view... one of the most beautiful mountain basins I've ever been to. The climbing is a little loose and monotonous. Descent was pretty, but tedious... and we were still on edge about the bears!
"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."
