Hat's off to Sam on this one. He asked me last night if I had a GPS route for my recent trip up Weavers or if I was available to go in the next couple days. That took me about 2.5 seconds to respond to. I was already looking forward to going back plus I wanted to meet the Flatiron Rocket Man in person.

Joe mentioned that he wanted to meet Sam as well so the trip was a go. We had a great time out there today! I had one short scare on the way up the sketchy part. My foot slipped and I slid a bit. Harvey Butchart said "if you don't have at least one near death experience a month you aren't living". The truth is times like that humble you and make you appreciate the effort that much more when you get done and are still in one piece.

Sam came right up after me and had no trouble whatsoever. He free solo'd Weavers today on his first attempt. Pretty impressive in my book.

Joe followed Sam and opted for a hand line. I know he can do it without aid both up and down. It just appears that he was the smarter one in the group today.

We enjoyed the summit for a shot bit and then headed down the eastern side. Once at the base we skirted around and headed back on the trail in which we came.

Really enjoyed meeting Sam and hope to hike with him again. Either on this continent or another. As for Joe, he is always entertaining and great to hike with.

Good times were had!
