John & I climbed peak 11,458' from the south last Sunday. It was a long day.

Great work! Looks like the weather Gods were kind to you. How was the road up Pass Creek? I don't see any Spam roasting over the fire in the last picture. What's up with that? happy.gif

We were talking about the W Pass Ck road conditions on the drive out and came to the conclusion that it must have deteriorated since Splattski drove his Suby in (http://www.splattski.com/2007/fourth/index.html). A high clearance 2WD would have no problems, but there are a couple of berms at small creeks crossing the road that may bottom a Suby out now ...bring a shovel.

The weather cooperated Sunday, but we had to back off Glassford at the saddle due to lightning on Monday.

We went with the "B" menu on this trip; burgers, brats & baby backs. I'll pencil in Spam & eggs for a last day breakfast on the next car camping trip, or maybe corned beef hash & eggs. Too bad they don't make Spam hash. happy.gif
