Friday, 11/25/11 S. Boulder Peak/Bear Peak

7.64 miles/3,229 vert./2:49 moving time Garmin Data

Allison, Sierra and I were able to get out for a long overdue hike with our friends Dave, Emily, Kiefer and Shep. Headed up Shadow Canyon, which is completely dry to the saddle.  From the saddle, Microspikes are mandatory to the summit of SoBo as it is bulletproof ice most of the way.  No traction necessary from the saddle  to Bear.

It was a good bit cooler than yesterday, a bit breezy too, but we had an awesome time catching up and then went to the Southern Sun for a well deserved dinner.

On the way down Shadow, Kiefer spotted a very bad squirrel
