So far, this tops my list of least favorite approaches to a Sierra Peak. It makes George Creek seem like a piece of cake. There are steep, loose hillsides to traverse, thorny shrubbery awaiting you creekside, and endless talus rewarding you higher up for your trouble. If this route has any redeeming qualities, I was unable to discover them.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
