Route Climbed: Southwest Date Climbed: October, 2003
This is a tough mountain. I took 4.5 hours to the summit and 3 down, but that was in solo hyper speed mode. It is a 6300’ ascent day. They leave the weather station at the summit unlocked and fortified in case you run into an emergency. Don’t forget to pull your permit before you reach the trailhead. Amazing, when they told me there were fossils to be protected, I had no idea what they were talking about until I found myself actually walking on them by the millions. Cheers.
