 13er Grizzly Peak D Via Cupid   

This mountain laughed at me last week (Friday, July 6th) when I turned around and didn't finish it. I started that day low on sleep. When I saw that final pitch to the top I said "Holy Cow!" and decided to come back on a better day. I got my revenge today. I reached the summit at 9:17 am. This hike goes up and down and up and down.... Now I understand what it means when our grandparents said they had to go uphill both ways.

I'm standing on 13,427' Grizzly Peak D, in front of 14ers Torreys Peak (left) and Grays Peak (right).

I am adding a couple of pictures from the first attempt.
