No disrepect to a certain manic day hiker who may have copyrighted this phrase, but the Sierra Challenge wasn't exactly my cup of tea, what with the hiking to scrambling ratio being akin to the male to female ratio in Alaska. Most of the peaks meant nothing to me either.
So I'm proposing a challenge of my own, one that combines mountain faces I've looked long and lovingly at for some time with technical thresholds that will keep the excitement level at fever pitch.
The idea: three peaks, one week, the easiest route 5.10b.
The details: The Third Pillar of Dana, the Red Dihedral on the Incredible Hulk, the Harding Route on Conness.
When: I'm starting the 2007 season in South America but expect to be back in California by late July and would be free to take off for a week anytime thereafter.
