This was my second attempt. I almost made it to the top last time I was here in winter, but the last part was little too narrow with the amount of snow there was. The advantage of winter was I could walk on the frozen lake to skip the 12.5km bike ride, but this time I had to bike from Three Sister Dam, dammit. I am not going to write much on this trip since I no longer remember much. But this means it must have been straight forward. I'm genius.
