Sterling Pass/Vultee Arch Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2012
Hot day, high of 97. Started at 6 a.m. Got very hot going up the steep trail to Sterling Pass on the east facing slope. West of the pass, I got in cool shade for an hour or so until the sun came up. Continued beyond the trail's end up Dry Creek Canyon and came back the same route.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
