After bagging Summit peak, we decided to relocate for the next day's adventures, and along the way stopped to visit Palm Canyon.

Nice area, but after three days of hiking peaks off-trail, I was a little tired, and ended up turning back at the second climb trying to get up to the Palms. I tried three different attempts, and actually ended up well above where I needed to be, but wasn't able to traverse over safely. My legs were totally spent. So I accepted defeat and headed back to the car.

On the way I looked back up to see Bob on his way back down. Though he made all the climbs on the way up, he informed me that there was a parallel canyon to access the palms without any climbing required.

It was getting dark and we had a camp to set up, so that'll have to wait until next time for me. Oh well.

For anybody who hasn't been here, my photos show the route.
