Soloed from the Pacific Crest Trail; fairly straightforward route (class 2). Amazing view while it lasted; a sudden hailstorm prompted me to run down back to camp. By the time I got back I was completely soaked, I had lost my sunglasses, and my trekking pole was broken. Still worth it!
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
