Going big this time. This is the saddle below Trinchera Peak, about 12,700 feet.

Olas, your old beast hauled my fat ass all the way up. Serious lack of steam right around 12,000 feet but it did it.

And by far the best part of the trip was exploring the mine just below here. LittleTex set his helmet on the old slurry pump and went exploring. About 2 minutes later we here "crunch, crunch, ..." and get to watch his helmet run down the couloir. It bounced friggin forever. Couldn't find it at the bottom, I think it ended up as constituent parts. Lesson learned.
