Hey Deuce
I saw this update in your profile:
"looking for a place in Marble"

Kind of fits this part of your profile:
"Finding humor where you dont expect it"
Thanks for the unexpected laugh.

And rijaca was totally out of line, why pile on?

Climb something with an approach from the east (Quandary?) that way if you time things wrong you still get an unobstructed view of the sunrise. I've done three sunrise hikes and only timed it right once. Good luck.

What's there to not like about Marble? I'm looking for some real estate down by the river. There's a crazy sculptor down there that I wouldn't be surprised to find you've met. I think both you guys would make fine neighbors.

Glad to have given you a chuckle. Partial payback for all of yours that I've enjoyed.

Have a great time. Watching the sunrise from the top of a mountain is awe-inspiring. Generally, I try to leave crazy early like 3 AM for these. Depends on the distance and route though, obviously.
