Really great day we almost made the summit but began running short on time. The washes were nice highways but the mountain itself was a challenge. A few false peaks but great views. Maybe we can attempt a different approach in the future. However from the direction we started from a daybreak start from the gate is a must to make it happen in the daylight.

I always enjoy the off trail challenges Hank comes up with.

WHAT THE HECK IS SOTA well here is the description

Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas. SOTA has been carefully designed to make participation possible for everyone - this is not just for mountaineers! There are awards for activators (those who ascend to the summits) and chasers (who either operate from home, a local hilltop or are even Activators on other summits).

SOTA is now fully operational in many countries across the world. Each country has its own Association which defines the recognised SOTA summits within that Association. Each summit earns the activators and chasers a score which is related to the height of the summit. Certificates are available for various scores, leading to the prestigious "Mountain Goat" and "Shack Sloth" trophies. An Honour Roll for Activators and Chasers is maintained at the SOTA online database.

It's a fun way for me to combine 2 things I enjoy.
