The terrible loose approach hike far outweighs the 40 foot pitch of climbing...still a fun outing though
Climbed Coffeepot first, traversed over to the Black Gully. Almost injured my partner when a basketball sized rock I must have inadvertantly disturbed rolled between his legs at the top of the gully. Easy traverse from there to the summit block. I led the summit pitch, pro was 2 nuts and a sling. Shorter than I had expected and easy without rock shoes. Return down scree from bottom of black gully was not fun. Not planning on ever repeating but it was good for San Juan choss experience.
led my first alpine route on this mountain. 5.3 and 40 feet was a perfect starter for me. drop-dead awesome experience!
