this photo. I have done it two times, once from the regular trail, when I spent a very cold night on top hugging my dog. And another time when I did it from the west in winter. One of the hardest climbs I have done, with nearly 10,000 feet of elevation gain.
Happy climbing, and thank you for your votes.
"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."
