I'd been up this one years ago... but it was on a bad day for my Acraphobia... I turned around too soon... did not really check it out fully. Today: Fully!

Up... to the top... and then some.

The lower and middle sections are delightful; turn around in time and have a nice day. the Upper section... well, that was another story. Lots of blood donated!

I looped around back down some of the north cliffs on my way home... may have found a possible Spur route that would allow an early exit up to "A" trail... that would be nice!

Slow going... hyper steep... great training day.

I hit the library... tried for a slideshow presentation: if these work I will not have to upload so many pics!
