Mountaineering – San Juan Peak Bagging Extravaganza, Day 1

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

Today our schedule for the day was to climb Handies Peak (I also did the bonus bi-centennial, Pt 13,795) and then set up base camp (somewhere above 12,400 ft) in American Basin. We had a great day and it went exactly as planned.
