    We must have almost crossed paths (again). I finished my second ascent just before 3:00. I love my Kahtoola's for BP (http://www.kahtoola.com/kts_aluminum.html) – my fastest descents are in the winter.

    Oh, and I think you are describing the Fern Canyon trail – West Ridge goes west from the peak to the Bear Creek Trail. I'm pretty sure Fern Canyon goes all the way to the top on the route you describe.

    Great pics, nice start to 2010!

  4. Thanks GZ, not sure about “getting after it” but getting “out there” none the less

  5. Well I am glad you did! Wish I could have joined you guys early this morning, but the legs were pretty trashed from this trip as you can imagine
