More training. I can honestly say I don't remember this trip and may even have confused it with Torreys Peak (12), which was also a climb of the Emperor Couloir. Given the short mileage statistics, I do remember four-wheeling a long way up Grizzly Gulch basically to the base of the climb. This was the third time up the Emperor Couloir and fourteenth time up Torreys Peak. Again, I was just trying to get some vertical in at elevation to be prepared for my attempt of Gannet Peak in Wyoming in less than a month.
