Hiked in to climb Stevens Peak from the south approaching via the direction of the Tatoosh Lakes outside MRNP. Found remnants of an old trail along the ridge although it would come and go and disappear entirely in sections. Bring a good topo map and GPS on this route. All day adventure.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
