Wanted to do a hike with my sister's friend, Brian, who's visiting this week. Even though I just did this, I figured it was worthy enough to be hiked again. Really windy and cold today. Took a short detour to look for the azimuth mark then went right for the peak. My hands were pretty numb by the time we made it to the saddle so I was a little uneasy about going up, but of course, did it anyways. Pretty sure Brian had summited and finished his exploring before I could even get half way up. Slow going again, paused at all the same spots, and the wind wasn't helping. Happy to report that the views were much better this time around. Most of the mountains to the north/northeast were covered in snow.

Back in the chute, I took the same approach as last time: hands, feet, butt. Brian literally walked down with his hands in his pockets. Thanks for making me look good! :whistle:
This mountain glows like crazy at sunset. A sight to see!
