Many cairns to Balanced Rock. Surprised it was idiot-dot-arrow free.

Two semi challenging spots on the way up. Notably one that I'd never attempt down. Used my left shoulder blade to chimney up while Bruce assisted from above. Balanced ridge ascent has nicer views vs the canyon route. Balance Rock is cool. The canyon route is better.

Waited while Bruce hit the peak. Recent lite clippings along Rideline down to Carney. West Boulder was flowing well. We lunched at the Sisters then got chest bump respect from a younger group heading over to and down Carney.

Typical yawner Lost Goldmine Trail #60 was nice in perfect temps with blue skies.
