Between altitude sickness and that darn scree slope, I was ready to give up! I read Dharma Bums (of course) just before and knew I would regret it, so I went for it. And am so glad that I did! Thanks to everyone for protecting wilderness and our earth. The wisest thing that I could say, is that the overall trip was not about the climb really, but about the gorgeous exploratory backpacking around there, too. The sweet hidden lakes and streams are fantasy lands of faeries and nymphs. Two of the best camping spots I could ever imagine. Enjoy that as much as you enjoy the challenge of the peak!
