The young Dr. from Tucson sent me a text and it was on. Lets go Thurs or Friday (last week) how about Tues - Friday this week...no go. It ended up I couldn't go either. We texted back and forth about songs about Ragdolls and then got into deep discussions about White and Grey Matter and then I invoked the Hiphopathalmus and the Unicorn Ganglia. The Amygadalia got involved and the next thing I know we were talking about Kathy Bates and how she kicked Nick in the :pk: . So that's what got me thinking about doing Ragged Top.

I pulled a Desert-Bonnie and didn't take a pre-determined route. The trip up was a 5 in the spicy sauce category. I haven't climbed anything that hard in a long time. But it was wicked cool piecing the puzzle together. A couple scary up climbs and some turn backs and a scary traverse and knowing there is no way I'm going back that way so I have to break thru the layer.
Wicked cool climb but I would recommend the regular safe route.

Views were impressive...

I then headed over to peak 3880 which to my surprise had a summit register.

Next it was Silver Bell Peak 4,195 and its awesome views and two benchmarks...maybe a third but I didn't look for it because I was too busy taking it all in.

I took a different route down and saw some more cool stuff and views.

Next it was off to Wolcott Peak which is across from Ragged. The wind started whippin and the clouds rolled in and it rained but after I was done. It also had rained recently as there was a little standing water in places.

Exceptional day with great company.
