In what is becoming an annual tradition, a group of 9 and I set out to hike the ridgeline trail new years day. There was a huge diversity of hiking speeds in this group so I knew we would have a long-ish day. So to make interesting an otherwise leisurely walk in the hills, a buddy and I opted to climb to flatiron without use of our hands on any section. We agreed elbows for balance on the wall near the top would be acceptable. We both completed this portion of the challenge then I decided to try the entire hike hands free. The wall near 5057 required an elbow and shoulder for balance but otherwise, complete success :y:

Otherwise just another ridgeline/5057 hike...there was a little bit of frozen water but you could say it was ice-o-lated and never impacted hiking...enough to save the day if someone was really really thirsty and had some iodine tabs, though. We started from mining camp around 8am and the last member of the group finished at 530pm.

All in all a good day. Maybe next time a unicycle...or superstition ridge "dos veces". hahaha

Great way to start the new year...hopefully lots of time in the mountains in 2016. Blessings!
