We tarted off the day almost being turned around by the Sherriff. But I batted my eyes (not really) and explained we were only going to Prison camp. He told us it was going to be a horrible hike and I told him we loved horrible! So off we went!

Weather was inclement all day. We had everything from snow, sun, rain, and graupel. One minute we had all our layers on and the next minute we were peeling them off only to put them back on!

We hauled pumpkins to the base and then attempted the technical climb. The graupel had collected on most of the foot holds and when you combine that the wet it made for a slippery task. We quickly bailed. But our retreat was to just go over and bag the non-technical ascent.

After the ascent we stopped long enough for me we chug my hot pumpkin soup and to get out a pastry. Then I bushwhacked with a pastry in hand back to the trail (don't try that at home as I am a trained professional).
