Nice hike - had a late start, left my house at noon and it was drizzling, hiked into Porphyry basin in a light rain, up the gully. Much easier scramble than expected, just loose.
And nice evening soak in Ouray Hot Springs.
Climbed with "T10" from Black Bear Pass, tough route finding to keep this one at 3rd class, I ended up trying several routes before finding a 4th class route I was comfortable with, but was able to descend the 3rd class route.
"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."
