Route Climbed: The rock to the right of the Underhill Couloir Date Climbed: June 24, 2001
Single day traverse of Thunderbolt, Starlight, North Palisade and Polemonium. Started at the parking lot at 5:30am....didn't get back until 9:30. Hauled a 30lb pack full of snow/ice gear all day. That sucked big time on the 5th class rock sections. This traverse is great fun, but make sure you're routefinding skills are good. If you rope up and place pro, the traverse will take forever. Better to free solo, but beware of loose rock!
NOTE: As of 6/24/01, the summit register is no longer on the true summit! Someone took it and put it on the ground just below the summit block. Also, there is a 15 foot piece of webbing tied to the summit bolts that some people use to haul their weak asses up (I don't know how long that will stay....I should have taken it down myself). Come on you guys, it's only 5.8+!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
