Interesting terrain on that one.  That is a great palisade you climbed up.  Quite a vista from that one too.

I didn't recall hearing the elevation on that one so I looked it up.  10,676 so it is a tough one.  It looked like great goat country too.  When I lived in Colorado drawing one was tough and I never did.  We would go ptarmigan hunting and, sure enough, the goats would come within ten feet of you when you were resting.

Thanks, two to go I guess.

Thanks Stan!
I took a fall yesterday, got pretty scuffed up and limped the five miles back to the ranch  :-[...it was a hike i have taken hundreds of times without incident...makes me think about the possible consequences had i taken that fall on Crow or anyone of the backcountry peaks i play on  :doh:....got a group coming out from Ohio in August...they want me to take them up a couple Mtns, said i would, but i reckon i'm retired after they leave ;)...taker easy my friend :cheers:

I hadn't watched this one until today, but it didn't look like it was as much 'fun' as many of the other bagged-peak videos you've shown us.  Of course, I couldn't judge the terrain and soil conditions on that trail, but much of it didn't look all that stable to an uninitiated mountain climber like me.  :P

Your fall may be a sign, as you noted in your last post, that it's close to the time when it would be wise to stop tackling the more technical 'big guys' and enjoy some of the 'tweeners' that you may have missed or intentionally avoided in the past.  At least, you'd still be in the mountains that you love so much.....without as much risk. :shrug:

Heal fast and completely, old friend.....there's still time for less dangerous climbs.  Maybe Jay could give you some insight! ;)

Yeah, this was a tough one...but hey, i'm nothing if not tough 8)
i reckon GreyJay could give me some tips at fitness longevity at that :)...legs feeling a bit better, managed my thursday hike without to much difficulty...hoping to put in an 18 on Saturday, i reckon it depends on how the leg holds up :shrug:
Only a few more weeks before the gang shows up, they'll be here a week and then i can throttle back a bit...this getting old Sheet really sucks >:(...i think i'll go back to canoe tripping  :canoe: ;)...thanks for watching Craig :cheers:

 My hat is off to you Dave,  you are a tough old buzzard, I wish I had your legs my friend, just the hike in from the truck on that access road would have finished me for the day.
 Keep pushing yourself as long as you can do so safely,  you'll know when it's time to dig out the canoe,  until then keep on keeping on. 

 Thanks for taking us along.
