The Thorp Creek Trail is not the boogeyman trail some people have made it out to be. Finding the trail entrance is not too difficult, and the trail is in great shape. A climber's path leads up the NE ridge of the mountain, too. Overall, this was a great approach and great peak. 4h30m up, 3h30m down. My 25th Ultra and my 28th OR CoHP.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
