I also posted a mountain rock on the peak which you are welcome to sign.

I decide to give it a try anyway; the plan is to drive down Phinney Canyon, hike up to a saddle, onto a ridge, then up and down a few bumpsto Grapevine Peak. Foggy morning, some snow flurries, and limited visibility...I walk up to what I thought was the saddle, gain a ridge, go up and down a few bumps, and end up on top of Wahguyhe Peak, on the smack dab opposite side of the saddle. Obviously I'm oblivious to my mistake until I'm back in the car, driving back the road I came but thinking it's going the wrong direction. Nope, I'm just an idiot.
I don't even know what to think about today. Was it a failure? I still climbed a peak, only 110 ft lower. It wasn't the one I wanted though.

My occasional problem is coming down the wrong ridge, which I've done a couple times and once, caused me to spend the night in the dark, bashing my way back to my truck. This hobby/sport/pastime can really teach you a lesson, sometimes over and over again. I've learned that I am never as good as I think I am.
