Markv and Mark Twain

Response to the thrill of the chase


Y'welcome, of course, Mark!

(Planting tongue firmly in cheek...)

These long and arduous ascents were similarly documented by Mark Twain, who apparently had your same disdain for good beta about his routes. Take a look for instance, at Twain's account of his ascent of the Riffelberg.

(Removing tongue from cheek...)

I don't have any highpoints on my list this summer (two weeks at Philmont instead) but depending on my plans surrounding the Konvention in Flagstaff next year, Boundary Peak may well be on the itinerary. Hopefully, we won't need quite as many supporting staff as Twain did for the Riffelberg...
