The last 14er

With Rainier done, I only had one more 14er to do in the lower 48, so I decided to make a slight detour on my way home to finish them off. Thanks to Ted for help on both of these. Those who know will understand the circumlocution.

    1. Pretty much, though no doubt Bob would have done it with more flair. I just suffered through snowy talus for 13 hours. Congrats on Squaretop, BTW.

      1. Thanks. It was fun although my questionable judgement had me climb a very exposed and vertical ramp. Descended using your recommended route (the way the smarter people went) which worked nicely.

        1. That was some of the most well-behaved rock on the whole ridge, though getting there via the garbage chute below must have sucked. I’m a bit disappointed you guys didn’t have time to traverse over to Michael’s and Red Kaweah. That part wasn’t more than 4th class, I believe, and it would make a nice loop.

          Oh, well. At least you didn’t get snowed on or go swimming… ;-)

  1. Sean…

    It was so good have some time with you a few days ago. You are one truly remarkable man. I hope we get to stay in touch.

    1. I’ll definitely let you know the next time I’m in your neck of the woods. Kind of busy transitioning to the off-season at the moment.
