Woods that one looked like the toughest one in the series we have watched.  Mostly due to the lack of trail in places and that tough stretch through the woods where the game trail petered out.  What would you think the mileage from the locked gate is? 

That talus or scree rock looked like tough walking to me and I couldn't get a good look at your boots.  Just curious what you wore on that climb. 

Thanks for posting these, they wear me out just thinking about doing them.

Stan,
Definitely kicked my butt this one did!
not real sure of the mileage...my best guess would be six, maybe seven miles in from the gate...felt like 26 :shrug:
Boots are Danner Mountain Lights...good boots!....thanks for watching Stan :cheers:...woods

Thanks Woods.  Yep, that mountain would kick most anybody's butt, even the young guys.  Hats off to you for having the conditioning to do any of them.   :thumbsup:
