Notes: Whew! So this was Petey Bishop's the front way. We started at the end of Cane Valley (past the elk ranch) on a long stretch of flat which provided a good warm up and cool down. But other than that, it was all up. Someone pointed out, that it makes the grind of Bald Mountain feel like a warm-up. We hiked hard and fast and it felt great. After hiking a solid 40 minutes we stopped to catch our breath. We all noticed that we had recovered within about 30 seconds even though we had moments ago been pushing our bodies and lungs to our personal limit. And that's what's interesting. It doesn't necessarily get easier, you just recover faster. We ran out of time before reaching the true summit and had to turn and head back. Another time.
