Interesting Route description for Arikaree.
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

Sarcasm or not, it's not even funny to post something like this. Not at this time. Reported.

Few cooking utensils are necessary. One can do much with an ordinary lard pail; a frying pan is a good addition,

What if I only have an extraordinary lard pail?

You didn't read all of it. See trip report by Robert Collier, jr. "Number in party, 27; 15 women, 12 men, and a dog."

"In this book an attempt will be made to suggest the most suitable equipment and clothing, but the fact remains that mountain climbing as a pastime requires less expensive equipment and paraphernalia than almost any other form of sport. The oldest and stoutest clothes one happens to possess are about all the necessary outfit needed. "
