For me and Denny, our 6th annual New Years Eve installment.

We assembled a motley crew to join us. A Padre, a man child, a HAZ grandmaster, one more comfortable one wheels, A flash with discount legs, one who sheds liquid, A 4 time DOTY, and one playing in his backyard.

The day started chilly at 1st water. We passed up a Mule Deer, then a sleeping Coti on 2nd water trail. The non-Trail up the initial climb of Battleship is getting well defined. The high wind forced you to be a bit more careful walking across the spine.

Time at the top was limited to quick snacks an the obligatory 2016 Glasses shots because of the cold wind. I lost my hat down the side of the mountain and my camera on a small tripod was blown over.

Back down to the saddle, LP and Mr. Supes split to do some 'splorin' as the rest of the group went down to LaBarge Box/Canyon. This area always amazes me. At this point, the Turtle Twins headed back as one had a curfew. This left Joe, Dave, Dave, Ray and myself for the remainder. Traversing LaBarge Canyon in slow going in spots. Some boulder climbing, water avoidance and thickish areas. But pretty for sure. We had a lucky close range Skunk encounter.

Once on Calvary, it was a walk in the Supes back to the TH.

A great hike with a great group of misfits!
