Death-by-Talus From Hancock Pass Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2011
Jeeped to Hancock Pass, then summited "Hancock Peak," Van Wirt and Monumental. Weather was turning a bit nasty on us by the time we reached Monumental, but miraculously held off for us. Headed down via Chalk Creek Pass then past the lakes before bushwhacking back up to the Jeep. Talus torture, but a beautiful hike and a reasonably fun wheeling outing with nice shelves and rock obstacles.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
