So, one day, Russ hands me "The Good, the Great, and the Unbelievably Fantastic" or some such title: Peter Croft's 40 favorite Sierra climbs, and says "pick something". So I picked Moon Goddess Arete on Temple Crag. Actually, I picked that and Swiss Arete on Mt. Sill, possibly linking them up. But that didn't happen.
What did happen is one of the most memorable climbs Sue, Russ and I have done - including the unplanned bivvy 3 pitches from the top.
Add to that several days of climbing around Lake Tahoe, at Donner, Lover's Leap, and small crags near the lake, and you have a fabulous week in the Sierra. When can I go back?
