rarely take a day off work to hike
an invite from denny and bruce to hit battleship for their year end hike seemed like a good reason :)
first time meeting and hiking with bruce and his son ben
i've met wally but had not hiked with him before
dave caught us a mile or two into the hike; been awhile since i've hiked with him
always enjoy hiking with denny, jj, joe and ray
started from canyon lake, which is my favorite for the views
got going around 0700 in chilly temps, especially in boulder canyon
once we got in the sun and started up to the stern, layers came off
almost five years since i've done this
the use trail seemed more defined, or maybe this was the first time i've actually gone up it correctly
most of the route finding, tricky spots and scrambles were familiar
lost two of our party along the way, but the rest of us made it up just fine to stellar views
took some pics and had some snacks
i had never gone out on the north part of the summit, so tagged along with bruce and ben
nice views and a good dropoff from that point
headed down into labarge box
less water than i've seen before
still a beautiful spot
stayed dry this time, too
boulder hopped down labarge canyon, stopping at aylor's camp
never knew it was there, but wally did
saw two dead foxes - more rabies?
good climb up from boulder canyon, providing more great scenery along the way, then an easy cruise back down
thanks for inviting me!
had a great time on a superstitions classic with some pretty good guys
