Route Climbed: Walk up from Enchantment Basin Date Climbed: July 1999
We did this the day after climbing the west ridge of Prusik Peak. The freedom of hiking without carrying any climbing gear was great. We enjoyed having ice axes on the approach as it was icy in the shade. The summit has curious channels or grooves between granite high points. A fun place to play and lie in the sun. It's more like a park on the top than a summit. An excellent place to ogle at the Nightmare Needles, the Flagpole, and other rock climbs in the area.
"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."
