After driving up Boulder Canyon to find the water too high for Hardboiled, I went up to Flag to try the King Conquer Traverse. After scoping out the holds well, I figured out a likely sequence and went for it. I next tried Reverse Face Out and should have flashed but stalled setting up the last move. Such a crimpy problem.
I'm feeling a bit fitter now. A quick venture up to Chaos last Sunday was fun. Toting 2 and a half pads just a few days after two weeks at sea level produced the following results: Bear Lake to Nymph 9 minutes, Dream Lake Junction, 9 minutes, Chaos Trail turn-off, 35 minutes. Not exactly a difficult hike, even with an extra pad. Worked mostly on the Centaur, a great V12. Planning on the left (Marble) exit since the snow will be gone well before I have any chance of linkage. A good reintroduction to the park. Nice to meet Jamie, Angie and Brian Camp up there.
