Finally climbed  Sucess!

Intended to combine this with Mineral Point A, but the person I was with ran out of supplies so we turned back. I always look at this mountain so I was pretty happy I climbed it, especially after Purple Mountain the day before.

Partial Ruby Traverse  Sucess!

Climbed this along with Purple, Richmond, Hancock, Oh-Be-Joyful and Afley on an attempt to traverse the Ruby Range from Paradise Divide to Lake Irwin. Unfortunately the weather started rolling in on Afley and we bailed, but were able to traverse around the Owen massif and get back to our second car at the lake.

The ridge had its interesting moments, there were several fun scrambling sections on sometimes very questionable rock. It seems possible to keep it to 3rd class, but we definitely went through several small 4th class steps trying to stay on the ridge crest, particularly between Augusta and Richmond near Angel Pass. Be prepared for a long day if you attempt the full traverse!
