For New Years, we did a 3-day backpack down to Phantom Ranch and afterwards planned to showshoe around Snowbowl Lodge. I talked of taking it easy and going to Dutchman Glade but a few of the others teased that I should try summiting the peak. Be careful what you ask for! :lol: My legs were feeling fine even though we hike out the Bright Angel trail the day before, I was a natural on the rental snow shoes, the weather was perfect, and I had plenty of Gu's on hand, so I kept on pushing up the glade. :D I saw the bomber wreckage for the first time with barely enough snow to keep the shoes on... I got to a little past the treeline and it was SO rocky that I finally took the shoes off. :? Hmm, still no wind on this sunny day, my legs feel fine, and the altitude doesn't seem to be affecting me. :-k Things seem in slow motion up at altitude, must be the lack of oxygen :lol: , so the scramble up that ridge to the ridgeline to Humphreys took longer than planned as I text my buddies how close I am to the summit. :roll: The views were amazing up there as I slowly pushed to the peak and was again surprised to find only a trace of wind on the summit. :y: The skies were so clear that I could almost see the Pacific ocean. :sl: Took a handful of summit shots, walked the ridgeline back to the ridge above the glade, found a good line with plenty of snow, put the snowshoes back on, and plowed down that ridge back into the treeline as quickly as possible. :sweat: My poor buddies waited and waited for me and I eventually made it back to the lodge just a bit before sunset. Sorry! :whistle:

Only 5.5 miles?!? :o :sweat:
