So, one day, Russ hands me "The Good, the Great, and the Unbelievably Fantastic" or some such title on his 40 favorite Sierra climbs, by Peter Croft, 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?
