Quite a hike to start 2011. Hike Monk invited me on this one so I figured, here's my chance. Little did I fully realize how scary this hike is. I'm not much of a climber but definitely tested my salt with this one. I couldn't believe how big those drops were and that I was actually up there scrambling around on rocks.

There were quite a few moments where we considered turning around but we made it to the end! Climbing up is one thing but our worries were more about getting back down. We kept going anyways. Luckily, getting back down ended up being much faster. We knew how we came so we weren't wasting much time route finding and scaling back down wasn't as difficult as we thought. From the time we left the Boulder Canyon trail, it took us three hours to summit. It only took ninety minutes to get back down to the trail.

This hike is awesome... but I don't know that you'll ever catch me up there again. That hike is seriously scary :scared: . I'm doing something nice and easy next weekend!
