Climbed Whiskey Ridge on my 29th Birthday with my brother Jason. Good time had indeed. Started at 8:20 am, finished at La Luz TH at 4:00pm followed by Frontier take-out at home with family. Good Birthday!
Second Attempt: Success! Date Climbed: May 1, 2010
Unplanned, extremely long day on the mountain with two novice climbers. We left Elena Gallegos at 7:15 am, started the ridge climb at 11:00 am, reached the high point of the ridge at 7:50 pm, found La Luz at 11:05 pm, and arrived at the La Luz Trailhead at 1:15 am.
Went solo from Elena Gallegos. Made it to the tram tower in 3 hours and spent an hour on the ridge messing around. I turned back when I realized it would take far too long. The return trip took just as long thanks to route-finding and bushwhacking difficulties.
"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."
