Route Climbed: Television Traverse Date Climbed: October, 2004
The family, including horse and dog, followed me in to Tower Lake. I proceeded on without them via a clear and crisp October day with not another soul in sight. It is incredible above Rockbound Lake. I enjoyed the company of three large rams. This is very unique, open and exposed terrain. I crossed a mountain lion’s path at the col below the northeastern ridge of Television Peak, broke my hand on a stupid fall on descent and ended up hiking out in the pitch dark. Make sure to allot enough daylight for this one. Wife picked me up after I humped back down the road a ways. THANKS!
