From Monarch Pass via Monarch Ridge South Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2014
Excellent views from this little beauty! Looking all around from a summit like this one reminds me how many glorious years worth of peaks I have yet to enjoy in this amazing state! In the snow and cold with Kiefer.
It was cloudy when we got up in Salida. Forecast called for 50% chance of afternoon rain. I was sure it was going to rain. Made it to Monarch Pass by 6:30 a.m. and were on the summit around an hour later. Turned out to be a very beautiful mountain. I am glad I went there. Clouds went away.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
