This time I made it an over-nighter with a friend. It was his first time climbing a mountain and he claimed it was the hardest thing he'd ever done besides a marathon. The Coal Creek Route is very beautiful, though very steep. Caught a couple of fish in Gunnison lake for the first time in three climbs this time too! So beautiful.
