08/04/10 Green Mountain #99

Hit up Green this morning with Sierra, as she has obviously been itching to get out for some exercise.  Up Gregory/Ranger very easy, down the front very easy.  Sierra was busy checking out all the new changes ("improvements") on the front side, it was interesting to see her stop and say to herself "what, where are the rocks that used to be here?  This log is new.....  torn up ground?  This was never here before..."

Today was trip #99 up Green for me this year, #361 since I began accurate record keeping in December of 2004.  A careful guestimate puts me at ~520 total ascents since I moved to Boulder in 1996.

If anybody wants to celebrate trip #100 for the year with me tomorrow, I plan to start from Gregory at 6:30am (easy dog jog).

Up: 44ish?
Down: 26?

  1. Jeff, congrats on #99 and probably 100 tomorrow. I've been stuck in the low 80's for over a month now. I was able to hike up slowly yesterday for #83.
    Have a great race at Pikes.

  3. I could go a little earlier if you need to. I have the day off, but I need to be home by 8am-ish.

  4. Kraig, sorry to hear you are not well. GZ and I were just talking about you yesterday, saying that you are one of the toughest guys out there. It takes a lot to keep you down.
