A handful of friends and I decided to ring in the new year in a casita at the Camelback Inn. What a night! Yay 2014! But before tuning in the key card and heading home today we decided to take the opportunity to climb the mummy. After all, the '13 holitaint has been a time of indulgence that deserves an equalizer. Despite some rough play last night, Carissa's eye injury was thankfully not something that was going to prevent us from hiking.

Some decided to fight the crowds of people who hike once a year in a nearby preserve, but that's not my cup o tea so we went our separate ways with hopes of meeting up later at the Duck & Wheel.

Fully outfitted in her inappropriate godzirra tee Claire led the way up, as we discussed the plusses and minuses of Nordic screeing versus alpine screeing. Both are better than boarding. Winter sports on a 70 degree January day in the desert. Tough to beat.

With the late check out we didn't have enough light for a full mummy lode, and probably not the energy either, but we did head out in the east ridge far enough to see if somebody was taking a sun shower in the tub. Another day with no luck there. Oh well!

Headed down the mummy and cashed in our hiking chips at the Crown & Anchor before heading home to rest up for the two day work week ahead.

A most excellent way to ring in the new year!
