The SE corner of Isis had us at hello. Not the summit, just another way to access the temple. We finally made it happen a year later. Once again daisy chaining the lead. This was the same tactic used to summit last year. There is no way I could do this solo.

Perhaps there are multiple routes. It seems unlikely. The route we pieced together was intense. Three areas took time to review, debate and a bit of personal soul searching. It is considerably more complicated than the Phantom-redwall-Shiva ascent. Less secure rock. Less holds. Almost vertical. You will not see a ramp looking down, rather the floor below the bay wall.

We debated the descent. A bit frazzled we took the long safe route out. Shiva to Phantom is still a blast and just plain fun with it's juggy frequent holds on a nice slant. Great hike. Phantom creek must have flooded a week ago Monday. Flowing strong. A few large downed trees. The gap between running water is easier to travel now that vegetation has been wiped out.
