Route Climbed: From near Independence Pass Date Climbed: August 1998?
This was a while ago when I was 8 or 9, and I don't quite remember it very clearly, but what I do remember is very pleasant. My dad and I hiked from a trailhead near Independence Pass, through some marshy meadows, and then headed up a talus slope to the ridge (me pausing for quite some time to scramble 10 feet up some outcrop, and then back down). From the top of the ridge it was an easy hike up to the top, though there were several humps that I thought were going to be the top, and then weren't.
Just thought I would crow about my accomplishments for a few minutes.
