Handies Peak (S Ridge via Grouse Gulch)

September 6, 2004

Although the route was easy, the views made the hike very worthwhile - certainly one of my favorite summit views! The 6"-2' snow cover from the storm that passed through on the 4th made it look like the middle of winter! I was feeling fresh enough at the end that I sprinted the final few hundred yards to the summit, making this the first 14er that I ran to the summit of.
