Route Climbed: Southeast Slopes Date Climbed: July 8, 2001
Duane and I decided to climb Phelps Ridge on Sunday morning before hiking out to the car. It made for a long day but it was well worth it. We were camped in the upper end of Spider Meadow, and even though we climbed the mountain rather lazily with time for photos and a siesta, we were out to the car by 6PM. It was a perfect day, as the photos attest.
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality."
