2nd Ascent  Sucess!

Up the east ridge this time. Longer, and no real benefit. Cactus, crappy limestone, and pain. What a wonderful peak.

Nightmare  Sucess!

A cactus nightmare. I'll be pulling cactus spines out ten years from now. That coupled with the loose, unstable rock and steep side hilling (the knife edge ridgeline was discontinuous) made for a long, tedious day. I took a variation of the DPS D route, btw. I tried to stay on the top of the ridge as much as possible, mainly because there were fewer cactus up there. But the vertical drops made down climbing necessary between them. It was a long, difficult day.

Winding Stair Cave  Sucess!

Started at Winding Stair Cave and followed DPS Route C to the summit. The route didn't seem as infested with cactus as I thought it was going to be after reading some of the trip reports. We also continued on to Edgar Peak afterwards. Hike with Pat and Mark.
