The Monkey is of My Back!!!!!

I have climbed over 250 summits in Washington since I have moved to the state. But though I have been on Si 6 times I had not yet scrambled up the Haystack....UNTIL TODAY!!! All the other times it was bad weather and icy. The monkey is off my back. Went with my good friend Jordan Halas. Good solid scramble on an otherwise lame hike. Now off to bigger and better mountains.

Nice Job

The haystack is actually one of the harder scrambles on I-90. I've been up Si about 10 times but only done the haystack twice.
