A Long Day No Matter how you look at it. Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2016
July 25, 2016 With Signe Gines. Started from our camp one miles north of Dollar Lake at 3:37 a.m. Stood/sat on top of Mt. Emmons at 4:33 p.m. West wind of 15-20 mph the entire day didn't help with the 50 degrees temperature. We were threatened several times with long dark lines of cumulus clouds dripping dark rain, but all of them blew by either to the north or to the south of our positions. We returned to camp by taking the Emmons north ridge and then bush whacking west of Lake Atwood to the Trail Rider Pass before generally following the trail from there back to Gunsight Pass, etc. Total time from start to finish was t few minutes more than 21 hours. What happened at Trail Rider Pass? I'll leave that to the reader's imagination.
