We were going to try to chain as skunk ape and Super Dave did, but I was suffereing from the day before, Tom didn't get to Ketchum until 10Pm the night before, and .... so we just did the Fin.
Worth doing in its own right, for sure.
Ran into some snow patches that made things "interesting."
Backpacked in to Baptie Lake the prior day. Had originally only planned to climb Standhope and Altair on day 2, but when I saw 11887 I knew I'd regret it if I didn't at least give it a shot. Went up the north ridge and figured I'd just turn around if it got too dicey. Fortunately it all worked out. It was a very fun climb and the views down on Goat Lake were a definite highlight.
Also climbed the other two peaks before the day was over. At the end of the day I was pretty tired physically and mentally so it was a good thing I started with the toughest peak first. Trip Report
"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."
