Great to be a part

Post by mtncorg » September 17th, 2019, 9:59 am

I have to admit to browsing at the website from outside to glean what information I could - very helpful. Retirement brings more time to type and learn new computing skills. Hiked and climbed in the area for many years as well as many other areas of the world. Sometimes people will ask me on top of some viewpoint how I know the names of so many peaks - the reply "Because I'm old." :roll: Look forward to downloading a few contributions and reading many more. Cheers y'all!

Below are some pictures of my past climbing friend, Toffee.

And here are a couple with my present compatriot, Cuillin.

My present climbing partner is Cuillin - named after the range on the island of Skye - good Gaelic name!

welcome

maybe the second pic is on the Zigzag ridge also? Like maybe the peak next to where Horseshoe trail joins Zigzag trail?

The second pic is definitely atop East Zig Zag above Burnt Lake for lunch. Thanks for the welcome! Your reports are quite useful and informative.
