Rough day on the mountain. I met up with Roy and Niel to make this crazy march up the Sutherland Ridge. For those who aren't familiar with it, the trail starts out on an old jeep road, which looks more like an 1800s wagon route, then worsens into one of the most relentless climbs ever, turning into a trailless crash through a bunch of brushy stuff and finally, relaxing into an agonizing, uphill home stretch - with outstanding views of Pusch Ridge, The Window, Window Peak, Cathedral Peak, Romero Pass and more.

We had a good day though, doing what most people (more sensible people) wouldn't even think of doing. As with any hike, big or small, easy or brutal, I couldn't imagine a better way to waste my time :)

Thanks guys for the trek. Until next time...
