Over from Arrow Peak in the morning and up the west ridge, after spending 3 nights in from Taboose Pass. A very long day and back to Bench Lake in the evening. Perfect CA weather each day, bagging Striped, Goodale, Cardinal, Wynne, Pinchot, Arrow, and Pyramid during the trip. Hiked out the next day.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
