This was Plan B. Mud stopped us about 14 miles short of Pasture wash. We did make it in ten miles. :scared: We slid off the road twice and almost got hit by a truck sliding in the other direction. We decided to turn around and hope Chumley's group wouldn't miss us too much. Plan A was Pt. Hutzil to Elves Chasm :( . After such a long drive, we had to do something. We went to the BC office and got permits for Thurs night. It was cold and snowy and rainy and we took shelter several times. The route to the pyramid was fun. There were a couple easy climbs but it was mostly a ramp up. The hike out was tough especially since I carried a condo on my back for 23 miles.

My stats are as follows. BA rt 14.9 4,521 aeg based on official route. River trail rt 3.3 and 770 aeg official route . Our Cheops route which I RS'd rt 3.46 1,596 aeg. Utah flats rt 3.5 1,512 aeg based on route info. and some side exploring including Phantom Ranch. Fun time with Dave. Thanks for driving and staying awake. First night, we camped in Williams at a hotel. It was whiteout conditions.
