Title: Emigrant Peak 2016

Emigrant Peak
It is a bit of a challenge on these old bones and nerves...
...but hey, there are worse ways a feller can go :P
Just ol woods this time...i think this vid will probably dissuade my dear friend Jay from the attempt...getting up is only half the battle...getting
back down is even tougher...hope you enjoy...i sure had a lot of fun doing it  :)...woods

Man, you must be part mountain goat! :shocked:   :hail:        That's quite a climb.....you should be taking souvenir rubbings of those survey markers on a notebook page!  :thumbsup:   

Thanks for taking the time and effort, especially the 'walking away Les Stroud shots' where you have to backtrack to retrieve the camera.  Great video, old friend.....I loved it! :cheers:

LOL!....actually Craig, one of those photos at the end has a heard of mountain goats in it...sadly they were so far off, you couldn't tell them from snowballs! ???
at one point i was nearly bowled over by a frightened Bighorn sheep :crazy:
It was quite the climb amigo and my legs are paying the price...but it was more from the descent...ouch! :'(
Thanks for watching and i'm glad you liked it!!! :cheers:

That is a tough climb in that scree.  Two steps up one step back in places.  Lot of effort for guys our age, more than I could put out these days I fear.

Thanks for the video Woods, as always it is just like being there.  Well sort of.

Dayam! You do give new meaning to the term "Old Goat"!  I wish I could still do that.   Thanks for the vid!
