Still had energy after re-ascending Bonney Pass and said what the hell? Almost went up the Grand Couloir on Helen too, but thought the hike back to Island lake was still a good distance. Good thing, the snow got really soft and I was pretty pooped when I got back to camp.
Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: August 2001
Scrambled up after ascending Dinwoody Peak on a day trip from upper Titcomb Basin. Since the top is a bit less than 300 feet from the pass, didn't seem like much of a climb--until that one notch before the summit pinnacle. One or two steps with a thousand feet of air beneath your legs, and there you are. Easy climb, astonishing vantage point!
Route Climbed: East Ridge from Bonney Pass Date Climbed: August 29, 2004
This is an easy climb that was somewhat complicated by 2 ft of fresh snow. We had intended to climb Gannett Peak, but the snow made it prohibitive without snowshoes. Miriam Peak was our consolation prize. Still, the weather was beautiful the day of the climb and the views were incredible!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
