Great to be back home for a day after 8 days of snow every day and temps 11 - 28 and picking up a killer cold.

Joe threw out opt A, that I nixed, and then came up with this one that intrigued me. A new area to explore... yea!

We started gaining elevation for 2.5 miles on FR1333 until Joe's track took us cross country to Indian Spring Peak. Some sweet views on the way and at the Peak. Joe's showed off his mad climbing skills while I stayed below to try and catch the video that would have for sure gone viral. No luck, he made it up and down without incident.

Next, cross country following the Diamond Mountain ridge line. There were lots of sharp prodding plants that left me looking like a pin cushion, around the peak before peak 5013. If you try our route, go over the top instead of around the peak. Approaching Diamond Mountain Peak 5120, we noticed a person standing on top. We went over to meet Frank, who was camping up top and spends quite a bit of time up there. We had a nice conversation with him before having lunch and making our way down the side of the mountain.

Because of the slow going we scuttled our plans to climb over Black Mesa and 3570. We got back to the truck just before dark.

On the way home on we passed up HAZ'ers Tricold & Slowandshadey.

We have a ridge & more left out there to 'splore some time soon.
