We hiked the Dutchman to Miners and hit it from the left. I was expecting sheer drop exposure from the right. Instead it was a non scary looking crack. Despite seven weeks of prep I'm just not up to snuff yet. Not wanting to hold the train up I opted against belay. Yet took the bait for the summit which is one tiny move. Did that on belay. Think I could do it on my own hemming and hawing for an hour.

Next up was who needs trails when we have brush! Worked west over to Barks then up a short jaunt on the Cave Trail. I should have known the easy trail life wasn't going to last. Back off trail over every obstacle possible...lol

Hit up 3445 then straight down to Peralta. Kinna rough for a measly nine miles. Wildflowers, new views and a wake up call kept it fun
