I forgot how much I love this hike. Total ass-kicker. Perfect weather. I need to make this a more common occurrence!

Apparently people read HAZ, cause the hike up Mummy now has a somewhat defined route. Why don't these people post triplogs? It's still a scree-filled chore. Especially the descent. Once at the radio site, you're still on your own as if you were nowhere near the middle of a big city. Fun, fun, and more fun. I hit 2233 and down to the chute. Traversing back to the north ridge is always a challenge, but the bighorn seem to have some reasonably well trampled routes to follow if you take the time to find them.

I cut the north leg short and turned around at 1936 (quartz) rather than going all the way to 1807 (observatory). Back up to Mummy and out the east arm. I just love the three climbs. Such a pleasure. Only one redtail out soaring today, and nobody in the bathtub :(

Had the headphones in rocking to dance music the whole day. Might've heard a helicopter and some bullhorn yelling something, but I decided not to look up. Just sang out loud and danced. I assume they figured out I didn't see or hear them.

Afterward, I met up with Bear, K10, and the more curvy side of the backpack at Wilderness for a delicious burger on the patio. Apparently they don't enforce the regulations cause there were some old people out there too :lol: . At least I was able to introduce everybody to the Legend of Pat Rick. Good day all around.
