    Wow! That is a lot of mountains to climb in a fairly short time. I can't imagine the focus and dedication it took to stay fixed on that goal in such a dogged fashion not to mention the consistency of...

    Kind of embarrassing to call for help just .3m from the finish line but I guess that's the definition of being disoriented. The Jewell does seem to go on forever if you're tired. All's well that ends...

    Yeah, I went back and read the story and this is not the North Moat/Red Ridge loop I did. They give the distance as 8.7 miles so you're right, this is going up South Moat and traversing the ridge...

    Its a great loop. I did this hike last year and loved it. But to state the obvious, a 3:30 pm start is poor planning.

    Olav ha-sholom. All things considered, I'd rather die on Garfield than in a hospital bed or in my little work cubicle "on the 31st floor with a gold plated door." Damn, he was younger than me. ...

    Actually I always found your TRs to be very entertaining. They were never just trail conditions but often humorous self-deprecating short stories. I used to get a lot of info from your web site which...

    I have noted that for future reference. Sounds like a nice approach to Roger's Ledge and pretty easy as well. Thanks.

    Its often said that the drive to and from the trailhead is the most dangerous part of the day and you just proved it! "smoking worse than a fog machine at a Pink Floyd concert" is a great line. :eek:

    Thanks for giving me a reason to put some version of this hike back into consideration. Logistical problems still make the full traverse unlikely since a car spot is mandatory and I'd be on my own...
