NIGHT RIDGELINE!!!

John had the idea of doing the ridgeline as a night hike a few weeks ago when I had invited him on another night hike and it sounded like a great idea to me. We waited for a weekend when the moon would be big and bright and that was scheduled for this weekend. Unfortunately, even though it was the night after a full moon, the moon was not very bright at all. It was still nice, though.

We started up Siphon at about 6:30 and it was still pretty warm. I blame the heat and the large amount of pizza I had consumed earlier that day because I was a total slug getting up to the Flatiron. Dark hit just before reaching the top and we had a beautiful sunset framed by the walls. Reaching the top, I felt much better and we worked our way across the ridgeline. We lost the trail a few times but its mostly still pretty easy to follow in the dark. Coming down to Carney was a total pain in the pumpkin as expected and we finally finished at about 3am.

I'll probably never do it again but I'm glad I can say I've done the ridgeline at night! :) Thanks, John, for being good company, patient, and up for adventure!

Also, this hike put me over 500 miles and 100,000 feet so far for the year! :y:
