Sunday 8/7/11

Took Mark Sisson's advice and played for a couple hours in the pool with my nieces and nephews. Nothing like kids to teach you how to play.

(Mark also gave a presentation on play at the Ancestral Health Symposium)

Friday & Saturday 8/12 & 8/13/11

Climb Iron Mountain

Located near Mammoth, we hiked 8 miles out of Devil's Postpile on Friday morning to our campsite at Lake Anona. On Saturday we started hiking at 8 a.m. We climbed a steep couloir that required ice-axe and crampons and then out a chute with a chimney formed by snow at the top to gain the ridge to the summit. After summiting at 1 p.m. we were back at camp at 5:30. The group was slow hiking out so I didn't get back to my car until after 10 p.m. (we should have been out by 8:30). I then drove home arriving at 3:45 a.m.

I was in surprisingly good shape for this climb considering I hadn't done any long hikes since June. I am climbing like I was in my 30s except without the knee pain

That is awesome. Sounds like a lot of fun even considering how long it was.

Thanks for the comment Derek. It was a lot of fun. This mountain turned out to be more of an adventure than we anticipated. It was supposed to be an easy climb. It was the list finish of 249 Sierra peaks for our group leader Louise Wholey. It was also her 70th birthday. I hope I am still going strong at 70!
