Couple of Words

Trying to organize our old stuff on SP. Shirley & I climbed the Moon Goddess ArĂȘte on Temple Crag over Labor Day weekend in 2004. Fun with a touch of altitude sickness...in fact, my most vivid memory of the experience was on the way down. It got dark as we were hiking down the boulder field below the start of the arĂȘtes. We left an ice ax at the base (& some jackets) & so I ran up to retrieve our sh.tuff. I searched and searched around the small snowfield only to conclude that "we've been jacked!" as stuff was nowhere to be seen. We hiked down to camp by the lake. In the morning as I was looking up towards The Crag, it occurred to me that I was searching the wrong snow field in the dark....dumb dee dumb dumb...ran up, got our stuff and barely made the flight home.
