A Word

Shirley & I climbed this in early summer of 2005. Conditions were dry though. I recall the hiking taking a bit longer than it seemed it would from the road. Nice route though mostly low-5th class. Best part of the outing were the views (esp. of the Liberty Bell Group). Blondie also accompanied us (to the base anyway).
