Condo at Sunrise

This is it, the queen stage, the epic hike of the year.

Mount Conness. We even get up early for you.

Mount Conness. Bill and David did this one during Stella and Frank's first trip with them in 2007, the day after Stella and Frank used themselves up at San Joaquin Ridge and the Two Teats. Nonetheless, we had followed them a few hours later to meet them near the top of the chute on their way back down. That had been a wonderful day. And the story of David and Bill's adventure spooked around in Stella and Franks' heads for five years before coming to fruition this year, largely on Stella's initiative.
