After a five year absence, I returned to Spirit Mountain with DB, Lori and Dimples. Dimples had accompanied me on my only previous visit to the mountain on 12-23-04. He and I were eager to return. Little did he know, but I had plans to continue along to the north from Spirit's summit and bag its rugged neighbor, Devils Thumb. And so I did! It was a great, educational day out with friends.

I'd stood on the edge of this crag 5 years earlier too...

The many crags and spires of Spirit Mountain

Crag scramblin'!
