The second time I've climbed Daly. An enjoyable scramble up the S ridge. The first time, I cut off the Capitol Ck trail shortly before it ended at Capitol Lake and headed straight up a scree field to the Daly S ridge; this allowed me to avoid some towers on the ridge close to the Daly-Capitol saddle.
I went up via the South ridge which had some loose rock on the first half of the climb. After doing Capitol this peak was a bit of a challenge for me... although the heat was not helping. ;-) Good view of Capitol Peak from the summit.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
