Damn Boulder hippies won't let me climb Arikaree or Kiowa. But I got them back - I peed in their precious water. :twisted:

Had Friday off so I went for a long run in the beautiful 75F weather. Hung out with a friend in Frisco on Saturday. Camped out at Twin Peaks Saturday night under clear skies. Hiked La Plata on Sunday. Hit zero traffic on I-70 on the way back to Denver. I'd say it was pretty much a perfect weekend. :D

I ran 6 miles today but in Hot and Humid Houston (low of 80 and at least that on the humidity scale). I can't wait to get back for "Color Sunday" in mid September. School started today for my 8th grader as well as my two daughters at College. I'm back to work so my weekend was hectic but OK. I'm done whining.

I did Sherman with two 14ers buds on Saturday. Summitted at 09:47 and not a cloud in the sky all day. It was absolutely perfect, except for the 60-70 mph straightline winds in a notch halfway up the Sheridan-Sherman ridge.

My son (13) and I, along with friends from Grand Junction, climbed Redcloud and Sunshine Peaks on Saturday, and then Handies Peak on Sunday -- all from the Grizzly Gulch/Silver Creek TH. Our friends brought their fishing rods and we had fresh trout from the Gunnison River for dinner on Saturday. All in all, it was an incredibly wonderful weekend.

Must have been a mental slip!!! Come on snow!!!

Anyways I went downhilling at Winter Park, just one minor scrape and very sore fingers! Great weekend

Bagged Shav & Tab on Sunday. Beautiful day out and the crowds didn't show until around noon. Was a little windy on Shav in the morning, but it warmed up nicely by the time I was on Tab. Will post a trip report later.

Climbed the N. Buttress of Pagoda in a push. I'm tired today but if given the chance, I'd jump in my car and head out for something similar!

The obvious illuminated buttress in this photo is the N. Butt.

How was that? It's high on my list for next year.

It was great! Lots of slab and loose stuff but that's the way it goes. Doing it in a day was pretty taxing but highly recommended.
